To the editor:
Too bad you jump to such quick conclusions about a place. (We Live In a Diverse Province that Really Is Beautiful to See, June 30 Capital News.)
Ashcroft is a wonderful area in which to live. As a matter of fact, my spouse and I looked around B.C. for two years and decided this is where we want to live.
It is such a friendly town, the people are industrious, have fantastic gardens, produce great veggies (check out Desert Hills sometime), enjoy all the arts with live theater, music, concerts in many genres, etc. Our parades are some of the best in the province. Our lakes are well known for their fishing.
However, you decided after a five or 10 minute look, that we aren’t worth the effort of the 10 minute drive from the main highway.
That’s OK though—the many people who do love to come here, don’t really need naysayers like you anyway.
