Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Not ready for a long-term lease

It sounds like blackmail coming from the K’ul Groups Mike Campol

It sounds like blackmail coming from the K’ul Group’s Mike Campol regarding the Okanagan River Channel and Coyote Cruises. What an attitude from him.

I’m personally opposed to another Skaha Park fiasco. No long-term leases.

With a five-year right to use, with an option of first refusal every five years (maximum four times), there is absolutely no need for a long-term lease that can be registered against the title.

We’ve been there before, just very recently. I’m certainly not ready for a long-term lease with those attitudes.
