Open Letter: These Sooke youth seek answers from election candidates — 3 Comments

  1. I was at the Transition Town event for the candidates running for mayor. I hope since they were asked similar questions, they have more substantial answers. DeMamiel Creek certainly is a wild life corridor and the need for and value of wildlife corridors is recognized on paper but “for real”, not so much. People, who have proven to be very adaptable, always seem to come before wildlife when the bulldozers arrive. And if wildlife proves adaptable and sets up in someone’s backyard, the animal is the one who takes the bullet. Thank you for speaking for your age group and I hope we all get “real” action as well as words.

  2. Wow I have the same questions for all the candidates too! Thanks to you all for creating HOWL. (It was mentioned several times by candidates last night at the All Candidates forum!). Yours is a perfect age for considering consequences…for caring about wild species, wild spaces, and wild developers that put profit before the environment and wildlife. Your actions are admirable! As the election is almost upon us, these are questions that every adult in Sooke should be asking! Curious what candidates will reply! Please continue to encourage your parents, teachers and families to VOTE! Thanks kids for caring.
