Referendum was needed

Dear Editor:

Dennis Curtis likens our public park, and us, the taxpaying owners, to a private house seller and private house buyer (Herald, Jan. 6). Such deals should be kept secret until finalized, he says.

That is a very poor analogy to our Skaha Park/Trio Marina situation.

First of all, there should have been no deal, secret or otherwise, without the public knowing about it first. After appropriate information being put out, then there should have been a referendum. Only then should there have been a possible deal.
