Letter: Another story of being side-swiped in West Kelowna

But it's not too late [to fess up], responsibility is the price of greatness.

To the editor:

With this letter I’d like to support Brian Davis with his letter about taking responsibility (Side-Swiped In West Kelowna, Nov. 20 Capital News). We also had the nasty experience of a hit-and-run.

On Monday Nov. 16, our daughter had a volleyball game at the Glenrosa Middle School (GMS) in West Kelowna. As the school was already closed, the only people present were the kids playing the tournament and some of their (mostly local) parents.

It was only the next day, when we noticed the damage to our car. It must have happened between 6:15 and 6:45 p.m. on the GMS parking lot.

It is very frustrating that the people who did this, didn’t like to face the consequences and take their responsibility. But it’s not too late, responsibility is the price of greatness.

So whomever did it, be great and step forward.

Olaf Dijkstra, West Kelowna
