Re: Don’t feel too sorry for Fido, (Our View, June 13).
“We must remember that as humans we are the superior species, and as such we must make decisions based on what is best for us, even if that means our four-legged friends miss the picnic.”
I must confess that I had to read this sentence twice before I could be sure that I understood it correctly, given what is in our sorry age its unequaled “political incorrectness” and that it wasn’t some sort of joke.
Now that I am sure of both, I would like nothing better than to be able to greet and praise the author.
I cannot, alas, for this newspaper, like other Canadian newspapers, persists in the deplorable habit of leaving editorials unsigned.
But no matter. What must happen now is that all like-minded property owners in the Capital Regional District, who insist on their right to grow food, or just simply cultivate a beautiful garden, bombard with the above sentence, over and over again, the Capital Regional District citizens’ committee labouring away at deciding the fate of our marauding deer population.
Perhaps then it will not give way to the very few with the loudest mouths and go right to the only rational solution: a CRD-wide cull.
