Not impressed

Resident opposed to plans for the twinning of Kal Tire Place

Your attempt to have a new ice surface in Kal Tire Place is totally ridiculous.

Also giving the BX an opportunity to cast a vote is contempt. My taxes are about $2,800 per year in Vernon, while most taxes in the BX area are about $500 per year or less. And they are voting, you call this democracy? Where are you all coming from? A recession is a period in which you tighten your belt.

In a depression, you have no belt to tighten

I urge all seniors to get out and vote on this referendum. Your rent and taxes will be rising if you don’t.

The Civic Arena, come on. If you want ice rinks, go up to Silver Star. I’m certain they can make outdoor rinks to play on.

If that’s not sufficient, move to Saskatchewan or Manitoba.

We have a dinosaur just completed up by the college on the highway.

In closing, I am not impressed with The Morning Star giving all of the ink to the rink.
