Don’t let Victoria become ‘just another city’

Deer Victoria BC development

Re: Backward thinking behind wildlife cull (Letters, Sept. 9)

After reading Diana Monks’ letter I was glad that there is another person who shares my view.

I visited the Island and Vancouver from the United Kingdom and was overwhelmed with their beauty, but disappointed at seeing how development in the hills and forests is taking over.

England had bears and cougars once. Now we can only see them at the zoo. Don’t let it happen here.

I came over to see the bears and cougars and ventured into the wild at my own risk to see one but never did, although I heard many accounts of them being shot during my stay.

I soon fly back to the United Kingdom with a different view of Victoria of becoming just another city full of development. I’m glad I saw some of its beauty before it is destroyed.

If Diana or other people with the same views would like to email me for chats, I would be pleased to hear from them. My email is confield@ntlworld.com.
