Still waiting…

No response to date from COS to letter sent July 12, 2012.

Dear editor,

Re an open letter I sent to the Ministry of Conservation on July 12, 2012. To date I have not received an answer.

This is the same respect I received when I called for a “Conservation Officer” to attend and deal with a dangerous bear, as per my letter. It has come to my attention that there have been many such calls over the past few years that go ignored by your “paid members”.

It also means, unfortunately, because the bear problem in our particular area has not been dealt with, the returning wildlife are now with cubs. The sows will teach their cubs what they know best — garbage.

It’s true that ignorant people do leave their garbage out, but most do not. These animals have lost their fear of humans, and that’s what makes them dangerous. Our Mount Waddington Regional District also sent a letter regarding “Conservation” of wildlife on North Vancouver Island regarding the same issues as I have. I wonder if you also ignored that letter?

I feel your employees are not doing their jobs; therefore, we should have our retroactive taxes that pay their wages, and your office, returned to our community.
