To the editor:
Kudos for coming in second in the Hockeyville competition in 2012.
But to use the $25,000 prize toward the cost of installation of an electronic billboard?
There have been protests since the 1970s against billboards along the highway into Kelowna and now West Kelowna is going along with this?
There are businesses in West Kelowna that would like to promote their product in this way, but there are bylaws that prevent placement of signage on public property.
Yet here is West Kelowna council doing the same thing—i.e. promoting Royal LePage Place.
Really? On top of this our tax dollars are spending $100,000 for this. Are you serious?
