Letter: Meikle worked for all of us

Our sincere condolences to his family, who so kindly, shared this unique man with us

Meikle worked for all of us

On Tuesday we heard that Nelson Meikle has passed away.

Nelson worked for more hours than any of us will ever know. He claimed, on many occasions, to be doing it for his grandson. Well, the spin off was, he did it for all of us.

He was a passionate defender. He got people mobilized, involved and fighting for the rights of the ordinary people to have a say in the use of Penticton public lands. He showed, in black and white, that this mayor and council flaunts the bylaws. He exposed the fact that Trio Marine ignores the liquor licencing laws. He showed that this is more than a lapse of ethics and started various law suits to prove it.

There is hope that he has inspired someone with legal skills and the determination to carry on in his absence. His army awaits.

Our sincere condolences to his family, who so kindly, shared this unique man with us.
