Art gallery

Resident challenges some recent comments about the planned cultural facility

In the May 13 edition of The Morning Star is an article which indicates the bizarre reasoning of how our local politicians justify their minority decisions.

With regard to the gallery, the Vernon Public Art Gallery executive director apparently stated that, “More people have been to the lockers than the art gallery so that indicates that the gallery is in the wrong place (located at the side of the downtown parkade).”

This of course promotes the site identified as the future home of an art gallery.

With this reasoning, if the special container project had been set up at the new running track, we could end up with our new gallery overlooking Kal Lake.
