Deer numbers add up to big problem

I see the need for each candidate to declare where they stand on our ongoing, horrendous deer problem

Prior to my voting in the Oak Bay municipal election, I see the need for each candidate to declare where they stand on our ongoing, horrendous deer problem.

Many residents refuse to do the math. If the mealymouthed status quo prevails, this is what the future brings: 2014, 250 deer; 2015, 500 deer; 2016, 1,000 deer;  2017, 2,000 deer; 2018, 4,000 deer.

I rest my case.
