Letter: Save Skaha Park Society

How can the directors expect the membership to trust the City of Penticton

Save Skaha Park Society

In my opinion, the directors of the Save Skaha Park Society, with only a few others, have presumed too much — that they speak for and represent the 5,000 plus membership.

The majority believed saving Skaha meant the whole, not just the waterslide green area. The majority joined, believing it would be necessary to fight to save Skaha Lake Park, or any other parks, and would have voted, if asked, to pursue the legal case.

Many of the members have no clue what has been going on within the society. Many of them are not notified as they do not receive the periodic emails. Many members are not even voters.

How can the directors expect the membership to trust the City of Penticton when they have so much disregarded the voices of the people, withholding information and pursuing development in parks.

Where is proof that they are trustworthy or even respectful of the wishes of the people?

Until next election is a long grace period.
