Letter: Matter of time before there’s another death
To the editor:
Re: Mayor Bristles at Media Slam on His City, Feb. 26 Capital News.
Mr. Mayor: In your recent tiff with The Province newspaper and The Edmonton Journal comments on the drug problem here—are you not aware or just ignorant of the drug busts, grow ops, drug-related cases that are before the Kelowna courts on a weekly basis, not to mention our city police chief’s daughter involved in a drug case.
Possession and trafficking of narcotics are in the news on a daily basis. It is fine and dandy that the police have three persons in custody for the Bacon murder, but it has given those three individuals 18 months to prepare their future and appoint successors to carry on with the gangs and war on drugs.
So, Mr. Mayor, when you are downtown and stop to smell the flowers on your patio sidewalks, please think that it is only a matter of time before innocent people are hurt or killed.
