BOUQUET: I would like to present the most enormous bouquet to “Olivia” (according to her name tag) who always greets me with her uplifting and pleasant smile when I go through the Hulls Corner Starbucks drive thru. Even with her wearing a face mask her brilliant personality still shines through!
BEEF: I enjoyed the beef in Wednesday’s paper re Lagoon. As a senior, handicapped, I have a beef too. As a taxpayer of Colwood, I always enjoyed my drive along the Lagoon, and feel its time to open up now to everybody.
BOUQUET: A BIG BIG bouquet and thank you to the volunteers who have been in the Highlands picking up the cut scotch broom. We appreciate being able to dispose of the invasive plant in our neighbourhood.
BOUQUET: As a member of the Korea Veterans Association, I would like to send a bouquet to Ambassador Maeng-ho Shin, South Korea’s Ambassador to Canada. Last week every member of the Association received 35 face masks. This gift was made to express their sincerest appreciation for Canada coming to their aid during the Korean War. The Korean People have never forgotten. This kind act before he retires was very well received by the veterans and will never be forgotten. Thank you Mr. Ambassador and all the very best to you in your retirement
BEEF: A big raw piece of beef to the drivers on the Malahat that feel the need for speed. This road is safe should drivers choose to use it with care. Driving is a privilege – not a right!
BOUQUET: A big batch of daisies to all the staff at Dunsmuir school who gathered all the students belongings and got them back to the families over the last couple of weeks. My daughter was worried she would not get her stuff (there were a few sentimental items) and with everything going on we received every last item left at the school.
BEEF: To the pet owner at Wishart school. I watched you watching your dog take a crap in the soccer field and you didn’t bag it. To top it off there were kids coming to play!
BOUQUET: To the City of View Royal and Mayor David Screech for opening the parks and walking trails, allowing people to safely get exercise and fresh air while easily maintaining social distancing.
BEEF: Regarding the person who keeps parking in the lot on Claude Road with a motorhome. Nobody else is allowed to park there with their RV, boats or trailers for hours and days so why is he allowed? It makes for an awkward turn around and less parking stalls for residents and workers.
BOUQUET: Nice to hear some customers saying thank you to cashiers for working; that is thoughtful and appreciated.
BEEF: To all the people leaving their doggy poop bags on trails. If you don’t want to hold on to the poop bag to throw in the trash, fine, at least chuck it into the bushes.
BEEF: To the seemingly increasing number of people who like to tell others what to do. We don’t need your advice, thank you. Bouquet to those who are trying to get on with their lives. May you be safe, may you be healthy, and may you be happy.
