Treat graffiti as art, promote creative outlet

City too zealous about cleaning up what many would consider art

Re: Not all graffiti unsightly, commuter says (Letters, June 27)

I agree, we seem to be zealous about cleaning up everything from people to graffiti. I imagine folks who do graffiti need a creative outlet.

I’m glad Saanich has cut back on graffiti removal. Why don’t we approach this in a positive way as they have in Chilpancingo, capital city of the State of Guerrero, Mexico? They have a graffiti school. The results are wonderful.
