Like most residents of Oak Bay, I spend a large amount of money improving my home and property. This includes big bucks spent on my hobby: gardening.
For far too long, we have had deer decimating our gardens. In addition, deer carry ticks that cause a debilitating and often fatal disease i.e. Lyme disease.
Meanwhile, Oak Bay council does nothing. The problem has been cowardly passed to the CRD.
With more cowardice, the problem has now been passed to a committee of 11. Yes,11! Laugh out loud.
I believe it was Mark Twain who said, “A committee of three can get a lot done if two stay away.”
The deer problem is going the way of sewage treatment: nowhere.
Council members, you were elected to make decisions. Why did you run for office if you lack the courage to do so? You are failing us.
As a former administrator, I am well aware that the worst decision is no decision.
I request that the Oak Bay News give us a weekly report on the progress or lack thereof on the resolution of the deer problem.
