Letters: No harm intended

Comments from previous letter weren't meant to threaten anyone

This past week I had a letter published in the Sooke News Mirror.

I have since heard that several readers have expressed alarm that I refer to “picking up a gun and mowing down”  certain groups of people. I  believe that they stopped reading the rest of the letter.

I am upset that my intent was so misinterpreted. I can assure everyone out there that all I was talking about was my intense desire to help our community become a happy place.

If you would like to hear more about my ideas on the development  of happy communities, drop by the Malahat Farm table at the Christmas Fair December 14-15 or pop by the farm for a cup of tea with me. I am happy to answer any questions you might have.
