Greater Vernon Referendum passes.


The referendum was seeking consent to borrow 7.5 million dollars for a Olympic sized rubberized track and sports field on land next to Okanagan College.

Total Number of Votes: 8220
Total Number of  Yes Votes: 4303
Total Number of No Votes: 3917
The margin is 52.3% yes, 47.6% no.

Looks like this vote could have easily gone either way. Let's hope the enthusiasm to use the facility is greater than that of community interest in voting for it...despite a lot of money being freely used to sell it to me!
