To the Editor,
We have been attending the Vancouver Island Exhibition for more than 20 years and have enjoyed the experience although the quality has deteriorated of late.
We particularly enjoyed the dog agility events, but, sadly, we did not attend this year.
The decision of the small minded (geniuses) who form the VIEX committee to disallow pets is appalling.
Vancouver Island consists of families, couples with no kids and retired people who have kids living elsewhere.
For the latter two, which are a large portion of our society, their pets are their family.
Everyone does not have small children, so stop discriminating against us and our furry families.
