Write in a factual manner

If you are going to write letters to the editor, I suggest that it is your duty to write in a factual manner

Recently, Mr. Upward and Ms. Eaton wrote a letter that indicated North Saanich school population was in decline and this was given as a need for more housing in North Saanich.

More recently, Mr. Upward chided the editor for not reporting facts. Well Mr. Upward, here are a few facts that you failed to look into, in your letter purporting  a decline in young people in North Saanich:

1. How many North Saanich children attend Bayside and Stellys schools?

2. How many North Saanich children attend  the First Nations school?

3. How many North Saanich children attend private schools?

Mr. Upward, if you are going to write letters to the editor, I suggest that it is your duty to write in a factual manner.
