PENINSULA: Wonder no longer

Further to your eulogy to the Seven Wonders of the Saanich Peninsula (PNR, May 16), I can only say: fair comment

Further to your eulogy to the Seven  Wonders of the Saanich Peninsula (PNR, May 16), I can only say: fair comment.

But it is time for you to publicize the major problems here in the CRD: sewage disposal, waste disposal, the Johnson Street bridge fiasco and finally the disastrous fait d’accompli that here in Saanich affects us most — the ludicrously inept and expensive McTavish interchange which truly deserves the description “one of the seven blunders of the Saanich Peninsula.”

Going forward? I don’t think so. What a colossal waste of taxpayers’ money. Not only a hideously wrong design but in the wrong place.
