Letter: What is stupidity?

Council continues to ignore the issue of deer in Oak Bay

Stupidity is sitting in council chambers ignoring the fact that the ever-increasing deer population takes fertility to new heights.

Use your brains, open your eyes and do what you were elected to do: solve problems.

It is not rocket science. The more deer each year, the more destruction to our properties.

The question arises, why did you run for office if you don’t have the guts or brains to solve this urgent problem? You knew the problem was there when you ran for office.

Our property taxes facilitate the relocating or culling of these destructive pests.

In the next municipal election we need to turf the present members, I believe four, who want nothing done and elect people who are prepared to get out of the starting blocks and solve problems with haste.

Jack Lowther,

Oak Bay

P.S. Would the citizens of Oak Bay who want to save deer because they are cute please realize that being cute is completely irrelevant.
