Regarding the toursim scare tactics, (“Tourism in jeopardy,” Sooke News Mirror, Jan. 9, 2013) I have to side with Mr. Woodhouse on two things, one being the road. It *IS* falling apart, after Jordan River one would start questioning the government’s priorites. It has to be seen and driven to understand you’d think you were on some mountain pass in a Third World country.
After reading Mr. Woodhouse’s comments, I asked around myself, starting with the gas station, “what do you tell visitors ‘bout the road?” They have been telling guests to our area, only with a strong car that can take the pounding. Same with some locals too, “it’s a jarring trip that’s for sure.”
So, I had to see for myself on a Sunday drive. I hope the BC Liberals consider having a toll-free number for replacing your shocks and strutts. That’s as far as I would support a letter writer who makes those kinda claims.
