We love Penticton and have lived here for several decades. This is only the second time we have been outraged enough to share our views in print.
We absolutely oppose this particular Skaha Marina project.
It is far too encroaching on our greenspace and it is way too long a lease. We have a problem with commercializing city property that was previously available to residents and tourists alike, for free.
Thirty years is a whole generation of children whose families would have to pay for them to enjoy this area. Attention city council, you’ve got our attention. Brutal. Political suicide. Commit us to this and we will vote each and every one of you off council. You may have the keys but you know what, we own the car.
Joseph and Beverly McQueen
