Take a walk, get fresh air

Dear Editor:

I can’t help but comment on a recent letter to the editor from Mr. Peter Maser (Herald, Sept. 9).

I guess Penticton City Council may believe they have a mandate to do whatever they feel like. For example, cook up some back room deals, like give away public park land, some of the most valuable land in our city, for far less than real value for 39 years (29 years plus two five-year extensions).

Maybe he’s right, we should all drink more wine. Kind of reminiscent of what happen when the Russian people were being supplied cheap vodka so they were numbed to the fact they were forfeiting their rights.

So let’s all have some more wine… or maybe take a walk in the park and get some fresh air!
