To the editor:
I am sending my very first letter to the editor, in support of the Billboardville column written by Wade Patterson in the Friday Dec. 7 Capital News.
I have lived in Kelowna for the past 24 years, travelling a few times each year to the Lower Mainland, otherwise continually throughout the Okanagan/Shuswap and occasionally through the Kootenays.
The Westside has become a total eyesore! My buddy in Chase calls it Little Surrey, and I can’t blame him.
How disappointing it is that Westbank is going to use their Hockeyville winnings—and that’s another story—on another flipping billboard.
What is most depressing is travelling back from the Lower Mainland, through the Coquihalla, descending down to the gorgeous Okanagan, then hitting Little Surrey and all the billboards and urban sprawl.
West Kelowna council and Westbank Indian Band, you should be ashamed of the eyesore you have created.
