Important number

I have no wish to get into a letter to the editor writing competition.

I have no wish to get into a letter to the editor writing competition.

I would just like it to be clear that we did not say “most of whom live in the Western Communities” (PNR letters July 23), that was a generalized phrase used by the editor in the report of the public hearing on July 14 and was not stated by either of the speakers on behalf of the Sidney North Saanich Industrial Group.

The important number for us is the 75 per cent of staff of the SNSIG and also of B.C. Ferries who do not live in Sidney or North Saanich and therefore commute to the Peninsula every day.

I absolutely agree that we should stick to the facts as there is already way to much incorrect information being put out.
