Tourist booths

Resident questions the common sense available at Vernon city hall

I would like to praise Lorraine Uzick on a well-written letter regarding the tourist booth fiasco that our city councillors are trying to push through.

I agree with all that was written in the letter with the exception of the very last sentence which stated, “Show us all that common sense still exists in the world, at least in the City of Vernon.”

You are assuming that there is common sense in city hall.

I think that there is a pre-requisite to leave common sense at the front door when entering city hall (with the exception of coun. Bob Spiers).
