Boats in creek

Resident concerned about motor boats going up Vernon Creek

At 7:15 p.m. April 26, a red and silver jet boat came from Okanagan Lake and proceeded to race down Vernon Creek.

A young man and a boy were driving the craft with obviously know thought to what they were destroying. You should be ashamed. Is the lake not big enough for you? Last year when this happened, we were left to see nests destroyed and dead ducklings floating in the water.

Many people throw sticks from the path for their dogs to retrieve. They would have been killed if they had been in the water at that time.

Please leave the tranquil creek to wildlife habitat and the occasional kayak and canoe.

Please put up a sign stating, “No motorized watercraft.”
