City shouldn’t cull a national symbol

I hav always admired the Canada goose. These birds honk at night and give me joy to hear them.

To the Editor,

Re: City seeks regional strategy for geese, July 21.

I have lived in Nanaimo since 1965 and have always admired the Canada goose. These birds honk at night and give me joy to hear them.

I think that egg addling is a very good idea and when at Westwood Lake I do not see many offspring anymore and that is good.

However, this bird is a symbol of Canada’s greatness and must not be culled. Please do not kill them; you would be killing part of Canada’s joy and admiration.

I am happy for what has already happened like taking them to Cottle Lake from Westwood. Let these good works be appreciated.
