To the editor:
Having gathered, with others, signatures to have the silly speed bump on the lower western section of Begley Road removed, I would like to thank all those who signed that petition and now ask you to inform our mayor and her council of your wish to have the damn thing removed as quickly as at all possible, as it serves no reasonable purpose than that of a political favor to the developer and this one client.
It is rather amusing to hear of how aggressive and demanding we were at that speed bump in the two-hour period, that one afternoon.
Yep, four old fogies and two signs, standing up for what we thought was an injustice on the part of the developer and the City of Kelowna, must have really been a great threat to all of you who, so willingly, stopped and signed to protest the exhibition of gross bias on the part of the road division of the City of Kelowna in allowing the placement of that speed bump in the first instance and if we don’t unite to have it removed, we can expect more restrictions on travel. That was exposed in a recent meeting with two city representatives.
Just how threatening were we? The guy in the house beside the speed bump must have thought that we were pretty good because when he waved at us from across the road, he indicated that we were number one. Oh, perhaps he forgot to hold up all his fingers except the one and didn’t really mean that we were so great. He may have even had writers cramp, as he didn’t stay long enough to sign up too.
Thanks again for your support, but if this speed bump is a big enough issue with you, bombard the mayor and council with letters, email, or whatever to remind her and council that when you go to the polls this fall, you’d really hate to have to drive over that speed bump.
Bill Kopetski’s cattle, down in the meadow where Black Mountain Drive now exists, may have created a bit of a smell in their time, but it was a much higher class of B.S. than that which we have had to endure from city officials since Melcor Developments reared up.
In closing, I’d also like to thank the few anuses who found it necessary to exhibit their driving skills in that area, which provoked the ire of that other segment of equal ambition to press for and approve the speed bump and screw it up for the rest of us.
