Lots more complaints

Re: Only In Kelowna Do We See Such Sights, May 4 Capital News.

Right on Jim Hair. Bravo.

Only add to that, the ban on cosmetic pesticides which are still prominently displayed (Killex, Round-up, Raid, etc.) At Home Depot, Canadian Tire, and other big box stores.

Ban it if you want, but when you say it is legal for professionals to spray, at a big cost to me, but I am not allowed—get stuffed.

Also, one other thing that doesn’t affect me but think is really stupid.

There are two soccer parks on Dilworth Mountain—one on Dilworth downhill from Summit, one on Summit downhill from Skeena. On Saturdays, maybe Sundays, there are many soccer games at these parks which have small parking lots—at least lots smaller than is needed. But the street has bike lanes so no one can park there because the people in the shiny suits can’t bypass the parkers for two hours. Where is the give and take in this community? The bylaw officers come out every game and give tickets. I guess they get overtime to hassle the soccer moms on the weekend.

Wow, what a town.

Dave Lawrence,

Kelowna
