First reactions to city/Trio
Many of you have heard the news that the city has cut ties with Trio.
First reactions: Wow! Yipee! Tears! Good move, city and Trio. Then I remember, it’s only official when a document is signed by all parties, witnessed, dated and stamped. And, I also ask, is there more to the story? (suspicious me). Can that 39-year transfer-able lease still be transferred to another party? And, are there any other “deals made or expected” besides the money pay out?
Such as, working with a large, influential society to approve a marina/restaurant? And, the building of a larger, two to three storey boathouse to the west of the east concession building, which would mean the removal of more green space, lawn and mature shade trees, blocking out a most scenic view of the lake, mountains and sky? Or, anything else?
Let’s give some credit that is due to Nelson Meikle, who also worked, to his dying day, to save Skaha Lake Park. I am quite certain that his legal claim against the city/Trio agreement and which is allowed to be carried forward by his daughter next month has given the city and Trio a reason to be motivated.
