Council commits political suicide

Dear Editor:

I see despite overwhelming opposition, letters to the editor, rallies, and lawsuits, Penticton City Council approved the deal with Trio Marine and gave them their 29-year lease. The City is also going to forgive the outstanding $36,000 in unpaid rent and compensate them $40,000 for the loss of the waterslides. Are you kidding me?

Why are mayor and council bending over so far backwards to accommodate this outfit? Something really, really stinks here.

To mayor and council, don’t even bother putting your name in the hat for re-election in 2018, because you have effectively just committed political suicide.
