Slide for free: what a good deal

Dear Editor:

Referring to Slide the City (Herald, Feb. 16). The mayor states: “Hopefully these water slides will be better received than last year,” referring of course to the controversy of a water park planned for Skaha Lake Park.

When will this Mayor acknowledge that no one is against the proposed waterslides. Most citizens in Penticton do not want Skaha Park commercialized.

As for my thoughts on the slide on Vancouver Hill, all I can say is God bless the residents that live there as I feel they will be inconvenienced, but hey, they get to slide for free.  How great is that?
