Appalled by city council

Dear Editor:

I am appalled by the decision of Council to commercialize part of Skaha Lake Park.

Have you walked along the proposed site? Imagine all the beautiful trees gone; replaced by structures vacant for eight months of the year. I cannot and don’t want to. Nor can I imagine why our elected council can disregard the will of an overwhelming majority of voters whom they are supposed to represent.

Council, please reconsider your decision and protect our parks. They should not be diminished but cherished for the present and future use of a happy public.
