Sooke officials consider a bylaw that would allow float planes at the Prestige — 2 Comments

  1. This does not sound like a good idea. Take off and landing space seems very limited and I think the noise would not be tolerable. I was down by Billings Spit one memorable day when a swan took off. The sound of its wings beating echoed back from East Sooke across the harbour. It was a magical experience but if it had been a float plane’s engine noise echoing back and if it became a regular experience, not so thrilling.

  2. I think this is a bad idea. Whiffen Spit is serene. The tourists I have talked to over the years love the “unspoiled” feeling of the area. Sure, go ahead, disrupt that serenity – not only for the people and dogs that frequent it but for the animals and sea life as well. Watch the activity dwindle.
