Offers alternatives other than tourism

Dear Editor:

Wow! How I would love to have three or four Constance Sahlmarks on our city council.

If the only letter to the editor regarding the waterslide to be printed was her contribution to the Aug. 22 Okanagan Saturday  it is reason enough to abandon this nightmare of a plan.

Ms. Sahlmark not only points out the obvious problems that come with a waterslide, such as simply consuming so much water and other environmental issues, but she did her homework and presents some intelligent , viable and environmentally-friendly alternatives.

If “Andy J. and the Destroyers” still maintain that those opposed to the nightmare on Elm Street are uninformed lay folk — checkmate!  You lose.

Well said Constance.
