Think of greater good when building sidewalks

Re: Sidewalks strike a chord with residents (News, Sept. 20)

The issue of sidewalk construction in Saanich reminds me of my involvement in the 2008 civic election, and being shown the need for sidewalk construction along Cadboro Bay Road by a rep of the community association.

The issue of sidewalk construction and the pattern of ‘broken tooth’ sidewalk construction in civic affairs is disconcerting to say the least. Such construction should be restricted to those streets with the highest traffic volume in all cases, to ensure the safety of the nearest local populace.

To appease those who are the loudest whiners or civic backers over public overall safety is reprehensible.
