An appeal for district to reconsider deer cull

Nils Jensen is the one who has the power to change this into something good, something that can be his legacy

This is an appeal to our mayor, Nils Jensen, (who I voted for) to please reconsider the deer cull.  There has to be a more humane approach to this matter.  Does he really want to be known around the world (he has been on Facebook for several weeks) as someone who went ahead without trying to take into consideration a better way.

The children of Oak Bay and surrounding areas are asking their parents and grandparents, “Is the mayor going to kill the deer?” or “Why does he hate the deer?” We, as adults, are powerless to answer this question because we don’t understand ourselves.  If he goes ahead with his current plan that is how he will be portrayed and remembered for years to come.

Nils Jensen is the one who has the power to change this into something good.  So that can be his legacy.  The mayor that listened and was not afraid to do what was right and humane.
