No support as long as parkland used

Who is really responsible for the development of our parkland at Skaha Lake?

Everyone is dumping on city staff (administration in charge of making recommendations to city council), city council and now the chamber of commerce and our local businesses.

Who is really responsible for the development of our parkland at Skaha Lake?

The proponents of this project, developers from Trio. Few words are said or printed about the fact they are the one’s that came to town and will be the one’s to pave our parkland and develop it for financial gain.

One has to wonder how they feel about the project now. They have the city divided and fighting mad over the project. One would expect that if you are going to open a new business and or expand a present business, you would want the full support of the residents, who, one would expect be the base of their customers.

Calls for boycott of our existing business is wrong. Just like the lack of info from city hall on the Skaha Park project. The Chamber president it would appear has not polled his members and that should have been a priority before announcing that the business support the development of parkland for profit of a business.

I do not believe boycott is the way to go but with that said, I will never spend a penny at the Skaha Lake development as is. I find it hard to believe that others will support the project as well. With a business plan like Trio has, it is doomed to fail.

Please Trio withdraw from using parkland. Develop a restaurant, marina and I am sure that the residents will support you, as long as our parkland is not used.
