Push for Senior Centre continues — 7 Comments

  1. It won’t do any good going to Council. They have their own list of things that they want to spend money on. They vote for all kinds of initiatives but don’t do anything about it.
    They just spent 1.6 million dollars on a plastic soccer field. Can you imagine the great Community Centre they could have built with that. It would not only be used by the young hockey group but by the Seniors as well.
    This is something the community has to do. We should start fundraisers and do it ourselves.

    • Boric you might want to get your fact straight about the field. It was the volunteers of the Sooke Community Association that spearheaded the development of the field. Yes they got some money from the district, but not $1.6 million. So tired of ignorant people spouting false news and trying to device the community. I hope you have enough moral compass to apologize for your misleading attack on the volunteers in this community.

  3. Lee, the Sooke Community Association IS owned by Sooke! It owns the Community Hall and land all over Sooke. What I was saying is that the money from the Association and the District, “in my opinion” was a big waste of money to put it into a singular use of a soccer field when it could have gone to a facility for Seniors and everyone else who might need to use it.
    Also a point that you might not know, the construction of the field, illegally filled in a wetland in the back corner that is part of the Alderbrook creek that might flood out the field anyway.

  4. The soccer field is great, so is the new horseshoe pitch. Let’s keep working for a senior/youth centre.
