Letters:Just a few things…

Letter writer comments on issues in Sooke and the region

My favourite Wednesday night pastime is to sit back and get a chuckle reading the letters to the editor in the Sooke News Mirror.

Bike park this and bike park that I wish they would build it so everyone could bitch about something else, it’s been weeks since I have read about the dog doo on the spit.

So as for my rant here goes. I love yard sales, I go every weekend but for you people who have them and then leave your signs up til they blow down that’s just being lazy, I think on Mondays the bylaw officer should be going around and dropping them off to their owners along with a fine.

Now let’s get to my biggest peeve — our three gas stations have been gouging Sooke residents for months charging 10 cents more a litre then what you can get in town. Just in the last two weeks they have dropped their prices just a bit but it’s still cheaper in town. Follow the prices on Gas Buddy and you will see residents of Sooke have been taken to the cleaner for months by our own community gas stations.

I must say those fire fighters did a great job a few weeks ago at the Evergreen Mall. I saw the hard work you did and it is very much appreciated, it is too bad you where able to save those planters in front of the mall.
