LETTERS: We enjoy Island View

As far as I can see there has been no disappearance of wild life from the area.

The Peninsula is a lovely part of Canada. I have lived here for 40 years and enjoyed many of the great walks.

One of these is Island View Beach where, with other dog walkers, I have enjoyed nature and wildlife in the area. Last year some of us saw sea otters interacting with a large eagle who was after their catch of fish. I also saw as many as 15 blue herons one morning. The Brant geese come in the spring and people and pets avoid the beach areas where they are seen. However I, along with many others, are shocked at the CRD`s report of changes, seeking to disallow people the joy of these regular walks with pets and families. Most special variety of birds are migratory and only there for a short time. As far as I can see there has been no disappearance of wild life from the area because of dog walkers or families.
