As a past resident of Okanagan Falls, I sympathize with those concerned about a pot shop proposal.
It seems residents were and are being let down by the RDOS, the director Tom Siddon, and the owner of a complex where the library is.
Paul Thompson, owner of the commercial space for rent, seems to make excuses rather than being creative about the use of his business space. Yet, new businesses have come to Okanagan Falls while his store fronts remain empty.
As for the illegal acts of the prospective pot shop merchants, where are the RCMP? Sitting idle in Tim Horton’s? Driving recklessly through intersections? Ignoring crimes in progress? Being rude to law-abiding citizens?
