Clay court opponents relay false information

I fail to see how Saanich having the first clay courts on the Island can be anything but a positive for our community.  I also fail to understand what has motivated some individuals to become so negative over the clay court proposal.

As a Saanich resident I am annoyed to see signage on the proposed site that relays false information to the public, and it should be noted the proponents of the clay courts have not responded in kind by putting up signs of their own.

We have all kinds of shared public/private arrangements in Saanich, so this is nothing new, and the fact that the clay court group will work to enhance Bowker creek and improve the overall drainage of this under-used site can only be seen as a positive for the community.

What’s the problem?
