Dichotomy within our city

Dear Editor:

There is huge dichotomy within our city over the issue of the water-slide proposed for Skaha Lake Park.

The proponents, Trio Group, have received tentative leases that include a marina,restaurant, and a waterslide as well as certain privileges with respect to some commercial rights on “the beach”.

It is believed that the waterslide component will not be constructed until 2016 or 2017. The municipal vote is scheduled to take place in November 2018.

In recognition of the dichotomy we find ourselves in and as show of good citizenship, I suggest that the Trio Group remove the waterslide component from their lease request and let that portion go to referendum in conjunction with the civic vote.
