Don’t doze on deer

We elected Oak Bay council to serve. Clearly, it is not.

We elected Oak Bay council to serve. Clearly, it is not.

This council voted unanimously to cull the deer.

To me, that sounds like a promise, a commitment, yet nothing has been done.

While this council continues to doze, no pun intended, new generations of deer will be born in large numbers. This will further exacerbate an already devastating problem.

The concept of a $7,700 fence around that tiny park, while the rest of us suffer is ludicrous and is discrimination.

Council members who lack the courage to solve the problems for which they were elected, should resign immediately.

I pay my taxes to Oak Bay – not the CRD.
