Letters: Unruly behaviour halted

Families at Sooke Flats pleased with police response to inconsiderate campers

Kudos must be given to the Sooke RCMP who attended the Sooke River Campground on Saturday night (August 30). The camp hosts required RCMP assistance in persuading a large group that unruly inebriation, foul language and loud noise was inconsiderate towards other campers and families.

It is reassuring that the RCMP gave support in such a difficult situation and we able to resolve the matter.

I feel that the camp hosts handled this incident in a professional, calm and expedient manner. They set a boundary and when that was grossly overstepped by those involves, the hosts did the right thing by calling the police who attended promptly.

It is encouraging to know that families staying at the Sooke River Campground are in such good care.
