LETTERS: Look after the Penticton firefighters

If anybody’s wage hikes should be appealed it should be the Penticton City Council’s

I wonder if the council has ever given any consideration as to who will put out the physical fires, never mind the terrible mental ones the council causes?

The Penticton Fire Department put their lives on the line every day and you people don’t seem to care until your houses burn down. Give your heads a shake, a good shake!

If anybody’s wage hikes should be appealed it should be the Penticton city council’s. Look after the people who keep you safe!
