Beefs and Bouquets for Sept. 21

Here are this week’s thank-yous and gripes about happenings in and around our West Shore community:

BEEF: I agree with Sept. 7 beef “to drivers who don’t seem to be aware of the turn signals that are installed in their cars.” I see it happen every time I’m on the road. There are many out there who don’t signal. Maybe they should check their vehicle’s owner’s manual and read about turn signals. My manual turn signal directions are on page 3-86.

BIGGEST BOUQUET ever for the organizers and participants of the 2022 Saanich Fall Fair! So many beautiful displays and good, wholesome family fun. My husband and I had the very best time! Take a well-deserved bow. See you next year.

BOUQUET: Thank you to the management and staff at the Legion for keeping it top of mind in our community while you renovate.

BOUQUET: to the friendly garbage pickup man on Goldstream Avenue for always giving my dog a treat and for wishing us to “have a great day.”


A big bouquet to the great customer service at Tim Horton’s Goldstream, especially the long term employees. We appreciate you as you work hard and are always smiling.


To Western Speedway to all the great years of family fun at the raceway. Over the years I have made so many great friends there- All the family would go to the raceways since I was a little kid so I will miss it so much!


Beefs for all the traffic backups when driving my son to Royal Bay High- A light is needed at Ryder Hesjedal Way- No cars can get out of the parking lot.

It starts our day with a smile!
