The death of democracy

Dear Editor:

There is a group of ill-informed people still spouting off about the waterslide and park. That is what they are, according to City Hall.

These people include ex-mayors and councillors, doctors, others with doctorate degrees, a retired RCMP inspector, lawyers, prominent business people, the retired and working taxpayers of this town.

These people want areferendum.

A vote, by all the people, to decide what happens to the land, owned by all the people.

The posse won’t allow that. It’s a land war of sorts and in the turmoil something has been killed.

Mayor and Council of Penticton democracy, in this town, is dead and you have killed it.
