Society needs to obey the bylaws

It is interesting that someone who lives in Victoria feels qualified to comment on the issues facing citizens of Central Saanich

It is interesting that someone who lives in Victoria feels qualified to comment on the issues facing citizens of Central Saanich. In past letters, we’ve been called “Nimby”.

Well, I can reveal the Woodwyn operation is in my backyard.

I have been insulted, threatened, had materials stolen, equipment destroyed and at present look over the fence to see mountains of thistles about to cast their seeds onto my property because this group can’t even bring themselves to mow the fields.

I am a farmer and senior citizen and really just wish to be left to tend my chickens and greenhouses and vineyard.

I see the operation over the fence and there is little evidence that anyone is being helped.

Many farmers on the Peninsula would welcome workers to tend their crops, but must bring in foreign workers because these people are not interested in gainful employment.

I am very pleased that the municipality has finally taken a stand.

I obey the bylaws and so should the society that runs this operation.
