Letter: Two-legged residents need council’s attention, too

Deer money could be better spent with Volunteer Services

I read with interest two articles in your recent editions.

The first states that Oak Bay council has budgeted $30,000 to deal with deer.

And in the next article, Oak Bay Volunteer Services is desperately short of cash – to the tune of some $80,000.

A little research shows two things: Oak Bay budgeted a paltry $25,000 last year for the Volunteer Services, and Oak Bay Volunteer Services helps hundreds of people a year.

Do the math, Oak Bay council, that’s money spent very badly on attacking wildlife when those with just two legs need it a lot more.
