Story: Pedestrian hit at ‘dangerous’ Kelowna cross walk

Kasia Szczepaniec:

That area (Underhill and Baron) is dangerous because there are so many blind spots for drivers. I always slow down when I approach the crosswalk because I’ve had a few times when you can’t see if a pedestrian is crossing. Not to mention, Kelowna drivers are terrible drivers, constantly having to speed everywhere, even in parking lots and urban areas without a second thought.

Story: Liberal leadership candidate says party needs to change

Sue Shya Young:

Mr. Stone implies that people in smaller communities currently have a voice under our current voting system. I beg to differ. The only voters who are represented consistently and well are Liberals. With a made-in-British-Columbia proportional representation system of voting, all voters will have a voice, including Conservatives and Greens. Perhaps that explains why all Liberal leader candidates have declared war on proportional representation. They don’t want to lose their monopoly.

Story: Nasty note on windshield sparks online outrage

Kimberly Madigan-Goodall:

I’m so sorry people can be so cruel. Education is what people need. There is all kinds of illnesses that are not visible. I get it a lot also. I have COPD. When I’m not having a good day I use my handicap sign. I get all kinds of looks. I try not to use it all the time especially when I can find relatively close parking spot. Again people need to think before they judge. Compassion and more kindness is really needed in this world.
