New role for mascot might work in Esquimalt

Bong store mascot could take on a more suave role in township

Re: Bong store an unwelcome neighbour (Letters, April 24)

I can’t understand why Esquimalt council and Bong Warehouse owner Ryan Place can’t reach a compromise agreement in the Great Bong Debate, simply by sprucing up the mascot’s image a bit.

For example, why not put Bong in a tuxedo and start calling him James Bong, Esquimalt special agent 420?
