Learning the political process early
A six-year-old Courtenay girls is getting an early start to the political process.
Ada Coghill recently sent a letter to Courtenay council, addressing the issue of raising chickens within the city limits.
Will council take her letter seriously? Hard to say. But we, at The Record wanted to share her letter with our readers.
The letter reads as follows:
Dear Mayor + Council,
My name is Ada. I am six years old. I would like to raise chickens, but I live in Courtenay and my dad says we’re not allowed to have chicks or ducks or anything in Courtenay. Would you please change the rules so we can raise chickens to grow our eggs? We would love to have chickens at our house.
