I would like to put this question out to you and your readers: I have a basic question and can’t find the answer as yet.
I’ve lived in this glorious place for two years now, and I’m trying to understand why it’s called Sooke and not T’Sou-ke as it was originally named. One quick glance shows which name is lovelier and more interesting.
Would anybody out there know why this change was made (by all but the T’Sou-ke First Nation people, who have kept the original for all purposes, as far as I can tell)?
If there’s no good reason, it seems to me that 2017 would be the perfect year to change it back!
