In a letter to the editor (Western, News, Jan. 20, Stop focusing on tourists), an Oliver resident let us know that we in Penticton need direction and advice from “down south,” specifically from him.
He feels for our city council because we do not tell them what kind of change we want. For at least a year, we have, through every means possible, told this council specifically what kind of changes we don’t want. In response (or lack of response) they have done everything they can to thwart our wishes.
As to snow on our sidewalks, you say shovel it, or change our routines. However, in this town, many cannot or should not shovel. Also, with missed doctors’ appointments, etc., one day can hurt us.
