Oak Bay council on target with palm sale decision

Council did not say to the region, “There’s no fun allowed behind the Tweed Curtain.”

Contrary to the editorial in the March 2 edition of the Oak Bay News, council did not say to the region, “There’s no fun allowed behind the Tweed Curtain.”

Council did decide that we didn’t need to sell palm trees on the lawns of the municipal hall as a means to promote Oak Bay, and thank goodness for their vision. We can think of smarter, more ecologically sound ways to “have fun” while furthering the concept of ecological sustainabilty.

How about getting 5th Garry Oak Scouts Group and Oak Bay Tourism to team up on a Garry oak sale?

Planting Garry oak seedlings sounds like fun to me, and it makes a lot more sense.
