Second rally planned today at City Hall

A second rally is planned for today to protest city council’s plans to lease a portion of Skaha Lake Park for construction of waterslides.

The rally in front of City Hall is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m., ahead of city council’s regular meeting that gets underway 30 minutes later.

Various petitions related to the cause will also be available for signing. Thus far a petition calling for a referendum on waterslides has collected more than 3,000 signatures.

The waterslides are one phase of a redevelopment planned for the Skaha Lake Marina area by Trio Marine Group.
