Sell­ing out to de­vel­op­ers

The Daily Courier - - LETTERS -

Dear Ed­i­tor: As was so elo­quently ex­plained in the Oct. 25 is­sue of The Daily Courier, the mayor con­tin­ues to trash plan­ning, zon­ing and reg­u­la­tions that have evolved from con­sul­ta­tion be­tween the com­mu­nity and pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tions for decades.

Plan­ning and zon­ing that up un­til re­cently has main­tained the Kelowna life­style as one of the most de­sir­able in Canada. Well, Mayor Colin Bas­ran is now in a po­si­tion where sell­ing out to de­vel­op­ers can bring per­sonal re­wards and any res­i­dent of Kelowna who voted for him, or didn’t even bother to vote, has but one per­son to blame and that is the per­son who stares back at you from your mir­ror. Fred B. Wood­ward
