R. Robertson’s letter of Feb.15 and others I have read and grumblings I have heard merit attention.
While it was very nice of Mr. Pattison to donate, and write off, his gift to Okanagan College, the question that begs to be asked is why was his name chosen for the new building.
My thoughts go along the lines of why didn’t the college short list names of employees past, present and deceased? I know that there are names out there of employees who gave their all over the years since inception, especially in the area of trades training.
My gut tells me there are names that would be more appropriate for merit and service than that of one who simply gave a tax write off. Sorry Jim, just cannot agree with your name on this wonderful building.
