Who’s running the show?

e: “Sooke can be a model for cycling tourism,” Apr. 27, Sooke News Mirror.

I hear what you’re saying Lorien; you have no pecuniary interest in promoting the youth-oriented sport of mountain biking. It’s all about less fat, more fractures, or it’s more about exclusion of all the other users of Harbourview, in favour of your unbiased vision.

Because, of course, “you” aren’t really that interested in selling mountain bikes, because money is so unrewarding in and of itself. And, since we’ve already swung the door open to the CRD, we might as well get Victoria even more involved.

Yes, I can see it, it would be like picking their pockets, “if,” and I say “if,” they actually spend any money and since they only live down the road in Victoria, my bet is they won’t, so at least your primary concept will hang true. Money doesn’t make you happy, “especially,” and I say “especially,” if you don’t have any.

If we just think back to the off-roaders, who used to use Harbourview, who I’m sure would and did spend far more money than a bicyclist visiting Sooke from Victoria, should we now wonder to ourselves — what kind of mentality is running the show here?
