LETTERS: The silence is deafening

Ever since the revelation of a plan by the City of Penticton and Trio to develop Skaha Park we have heard so very little from Trio.

Ever since the revelation of a plan by the City of Penticton and Trio to develop Skaha Park we have heard so very little from Trio.

This company, having signed a deal with our city has been far too silent in the media about who they are, it has also been far too comfortable in allowing Penticton city council to take the heat on this issue in the local papers.

Regardless of which side of the issue we each find ourselves, surely we can all agree that we would feel much better if we had a more open discourse with the people behind the plans for our park. I have a feeling there is more than has been said.

If Trio expects the citizens of Penticton to be supportive of their enterprise in Skaha Park, surely they could be more communicative in the media by defending their plans for the park.
