Letter: Forget soft fruit; we grow billboards here

To the editor:

Re: Billboards Ugly Greeting For Visitors (Capital News letters, June 25)

From the Joni Mitchell song, Big Yellow Taxi: “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.”

Now paradise is covered over with billboards.

Kelowna’s motto should be changed from “Fruitful in Unity” to “Fruitful in Billboards.”
