I’m writing regarding the article by Lissa Alexander in the Friday, Aug. 12 paper, titled, Living in rural areas presents travel troubles.
I noticed that Whiskey Creek and Hilliers weren’t mentioned. I’m sure there are many people in the area who don’t have cars or can no longer drive. Car pooling wouldn’t be an option.
However, those that do drive and go into Parksville or Qualicum several times a week, might be willing to take passengers into town for some financial help with the gas.
Perhaps they could offer their names to the SOS and people could then phone to make an appointment to be picked up.
