No meddlers wanted

Letters

The unbridled nerve of Victoria residents, the gall, the meddling – unbelievable.

To David Anderson, who lives way out in “Joke Bay”, Victoria, the doggie poo capital of Canada, regarding your insulting letter in the Times Colonist, Sunday, July 17, belittling the legal residents along the (Pacific Marine) circle route, diminishing their right to a livelihood and their property rights – to you, Mr. Anderson, I say, for all those who wish to be communists, go move to North Korea.

This country, Canada, has private property and personal rights. This country supports itself financially by development. If the Saanich arm of the CRD (Capital Regional District), along with Oak Bay, want to make an urban, couch potato point and crush a property owner’s dream, then I say, rip that intrusive Juan de Fuca Marine Trail out of our wilderness because, it too, is a development.

Go cut your own lawn grass Saanich, go build yourself a mall, but go, go away from us. Go walk your dog somewhere else because we want paying customers out here now — enough with the free ride for you Saanich, you and your trouble-causing riff raff.
