Trails need to be accessible for all

Letters

Please, you who are so against development in our lovely forest perhaps with views of the ocean, have the goodness of heart to provide areas along our lovely coastline that elderly people can access as well as families with small children and those of us who have bodies that cannot for many reasons hike along the wild trails of B.C. or manage a long drive to the west coast and drive back home or to Sooke on the same day.

The relatively small developments on our ocean side do not influence the vast area which presently exists for hikers as well as the animals of the wilderness. (I also love the island’s wild lands).
