Letters: Shocked by disreagrd of nature

Dumping or garbage in rural area is appalling says letter writer

My husband and I went on a drive along West Coast Road. We turned onto a gravel road named Fore Bay Road just before Jordan River. We drove up into the hills, leading to Elliott Reservoir. Magnificent views for all to enjoy!

Unfortunately, we were shocked to come across a fire still flaming, (we it put out), and a devastating scene of what gets left behind by people.

I would like to show you some photos, but don’t know how on here. I can show you on my Facebook site.  Thousands of bullet shells, old stoves, TVs, milk jugs, etc. anything that can be used for target practice.

I was shocked. I am putting photos up on my site.

I live in Sooke and this is disgraceful.
