Re: ‘Parksville needs to embrace Canada geese’ (Your Letters, PQB News, Aug. 29)
Always nice to hear from our neighbours in Qualicum about our Parksville geese.
Either the writer is a newcomer or has never had the opportunity to walk in new goose dropping while laying out your blanket on the grass in our community park to have some lunch with your family.
Canada geese are a menace throughout the world. They survive well and create E. coli issues where they congregate. Having lived in Parksville for many years I wish to congratulate our city council for taking the action they have.
It should be noted that continued effort to minimize the local population should be carried out each molting season.
Thanks again for giving us back our park.
