Downtown concerns

The wonderful citizens of Vernon are getting sick and tired of what goes on in our downtown core.

There will be another seniors complex going up downtown, and condos will be going up too. We now have about 600 children coming and going to the new NONA clubhouse.

Do we really need to see and hear what goes on day and night? No we don’t. All of the fighting and course language, needles, food, clothing, blankets and other garbage scattered all over our properties.

There are a lot of lost souls out there that have to be helped but the repeat offenders and trouble makers should be ran out of our city. My wife and I have been putting up with this problem for more than 10 years now and we both have had enough. We all would like to have our downtown back.

My wife and I would like to thank our local RCMP for their hard work in trying to keep things under control.
