Letters:Keep it clean

Dog poop is an ongoing issue along Whiffin Spit and other areas in Sooke

Down on the Whiffin Spit on Thursday someone must have spent an hour or two  picking up about 80 bags of dog poop in matching little green bags and then left them all on either side of the pathway. It was quite a sight. Some walkers were appalled, some looked puzzled, others including myself,  felt it was an admirable statement drawing attention to just how many piles of dog poop get abandoned down there in one day.

I also appreciated the diligence of the person who took on this task  and then removed all the ‘bags of honour’ the following day. Many people do pick up, but it’s always the few who don’t who spoil it for everyone.

Hopefully it will inspire more dog owners to perform this simple task of cleaning up after their pets and  thus keep our beach and community more wholesome for everyone one else.
