Whose Land Is It Anyway?


First it was the heart of a park.

Now, apparently, it is reservoirs.

A couple of Kelowna politicians are frustrated by the lack of public concern about the provincial government’s insistence on selling currently-leased recreational lots located on domestic water reservoirs.

Kelowna Coun. Brian Given and Lake Country Mayor James Baker are organizing a rally April 5 to draw attention to the issue and to gather signatures on a petition opposing the plan.

They say they are puzzled by the determination of the province to press ahead with sales of the lots, despite unanimous opposition by all the civic government bodies in the valley, as well as the Okanagan Basin Water Board.

What's next - the lawns that surround the Ledge?

Heckfire, ya!

After all, you could put some pretty nice condos on acreage like that.

Even better if you could wash 'em all green.


It's like Rafe Mair once said - the current government of British Columbia appears to know the price of everything and the value of nothing.
