Greenery takes precedent over flag in Saanich

Re: Quality difference in flags perplexing (Letters, July 31)

This reminds me of the Cedar Hill Rec. Centre a few short years ago when I had to remind the District of Saanich to take responsibility for the state of the Canadian flag flying from the centre’s flagpole.

There is an ongoing waste of money on botany (especially on the parking lot traffic islands) when the centre is surrounded by greenery, yet there occasionally has to be a reminder about the flag.
