Letters: Not all inclusive

Each week Sooke News Mirror readers express themselves on the Letters to the Editor pages

The thing that irritates me the most about Shirley is the way some residents refer to the population in Shirley as “we in Shirley” and “the community in Shirley” when all of  us here are perfectly aware that they are talking about a particular group.

Pretending that the rest of us in Shirley are an un-named, vague, non-entity bunch who need to be led by a self-elected elite, who will act as spokespersons, decision makers, and, in the case of Marine Trail Holdings, rabble rousers for us serfs and peasants.
