Selected articles -- Morning Star news -- November 18, 2009


Things could not have been so good in Kamloops if Mr Peacock left it for the fragmanted Vernon area. However, it was his choice to move here as it is area residents' choice to maintain political jurisdictions as they are. Vernon does provide shopping and Vernon businesses are happy for the support of Coldstream residents. In exchange we are happy to share Kalamalka Lake with residents of Vernon (including the water Vernonites drink). In addition, Coldstream and Electoral Areas "B" and "C" contribute to parks and recreation at the same rate Vernon residents do. Of course, Mr Peacock should be forgiven as 5-years' residence may not be enough to understand how Greater Vernon operates.

About Me

My photo
I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
