Letters to the Editor

Highway billboards prove irritating

To the editor:

My thanks to the gentleman that wrote the letter in regards to the billboards.  He could not have been more clear about Jim Pattison, the billboard advertisers and the WFN for creating that eyesore in our beautiful valley.

I’m sure that if I placed an advertising  billboard on my property, there would be neighbours phoning city hall and the sign would be ordered removed and possibly I would face a hefty fine.

The billboards are not unlike graffiti that has to be removed and said property owner to clean it up.

The longer graffiti stays there it will only be added to and get worse.

Listen up advertisers, Pattison and the WFN—we need to make choices to do the right thing for the common good of all.

Own up to that unsightly mess and take down those billboards.

D. Clark,

West Kelowna
