This letter is in response to D. Berry of Sidney, who fell while trying to reach his vehicle before it was towed from Johnson Street, and he received a $60 parking ticket.

I sincerely hope that your knee surgery went well and that you are well into your recovery.

Next year, I would suggest that you do your Christmas shopping in downtown Sidney, where parking is free and plentiful, there are no meter readers on staff and the tow trucks are dispatched to highway breakdowns.

Is it any wonder that business  is declining in downtown Victoria?
