Deal raises doubts

Someone is going to have a hard time explaining that a $1.5 million loss was a good investment for our taxpayers

There is a considerable amount of unrest and disappointment, along with many unanswered questions, pertaining to the city’s sale of Eckhardt Avenue properties. And this subject is not going to go away anytime soon.

It has the same odour and characteristics as the B.C. Rail sale, only on a much smaller gauge (no pun intended). It’s transactions like these that cast a shadow of doubt on the people we enlist to oversee our holdings and investments.

Someone is going to have a hard time explaining that a $1.5 million loss was a good investment for our taxpayers.

So what do we have to do to get an honest answer for our inquisitive minds? Take our tents and occupy the property in question? I think not.

The population of Penticton is a lot more civilized, or are we?
