Letters: Tourism is in jeopardy

Claims of poor road conditions can cause loss of tourist traffic

I thought about a letter to the editor but I might as well spell out a pretty serious issue in our area. I’m not sure if tourism operators in Sooke or out in Port Renfrew are aware of something that is killing tourism here.

I have heard of locals and toursim operators telling tourist not to bother or attempt the drive west of Sooke as the road is too dangerous. I have also been told that tour operators have convinced tourists, who have rented cars, if they drive past Sooke, their rental agreement is null and void because of the road being in such bad shape.

I feel the local population and tourism operators are killing our industry out here. I also feel it’s the government’s responsbility to make that road along the west coast safer.
