Time to move on

All right already. Enough letters about the deer

All right already. Enough letters about the deer. However, in reading Mr Farnsworth’s letter I was so outraged here’s another letter. Apologies. But his innuendo of intimidation to the mayor cannot be countenanced.

I grew up in Victoria over six decades ago and there were no deer roaming the streets. Ms. Greene’s (losing mayoralty candidate) continued efforts on pushing the pause button on the deer cull is really quite pathetic. I opposed the Clive apartment development but it was approved and I hope it is a positive improvement for our village.

For you scientists out there, culling 25 deer will mean 25 less deer, and if you think that won’t make any difference you have proved by your own words there are too many deer. Please let’s move on Oak Bay News.
