Down­town Vic­to­ria an em­bar­rass­ment

Times Colonist - - Comment -

Over the sum­mer, I had a visi­tor. As is our nor­mal prac­tice, we spent a day in down­town Vic­to­ria. This year I was em­bar­rassed to take her there as the down­town core was com­pletely filthy.

What has hap­pened to our beau­ti­ful Vic­to­ria? How can we pos­si­bly welcome visi­tors to the area when we show so lit­tle re­spect for it our­selves?

I be­lieve tax­payer money would be far bet­ter spent hos­ing down the down­town core ev­ery morn­ing than paint­ing cross­walks to look like puz­zle pieces.

And by the way — Quadra Vil­lage is not much bet­ter. Lu­cille Lon­g­ley Sid­ney
