Letters to the Editor

Border to border senior moments horrifying thought

To the editor:

Re: Kelowna is For Old People, Keep it That Way, letter to the editor, Oct. 4 Capital News.

Well, I would have to say this is one of the most ignorant and selfish things I have heard.

Let’s put this idea into perspective and get rid of all the “non-seniors” here.

Seniors for police enforcement, seniors for building, seniors for customer service, seniors fixings our computers, OMG—seniors operating on each other.

Wow, I could not even fathom the thought of what this “town” would look like.

Half of the seniors out there cannot even remember if they wiped their butt when they went to the bathroom last. The other half had a “non-senior” wipe their butt for them.

Did you send your grandkids this letter before they printed it?

How do you propose enforcing this “seniors town”? Maybe a toll booth where another senior that can’t see can check visitors or residents ID?

Would non-seniors even be allowd to pass through or phone?

Society dictates that at certain ages people do need to be cared for. I, for one, cannot wait to be taken care of, and if it is by some “young” cutey then all that much better.

Adios grumpa!

Graham Waites,

West Kelowna
