Readers write - Argument for amphitheatre not convincing

Ms. Bond's defence of the proposed Amphitheatre in an interview with Chris Walker of CBC's, Daybreak South, this morning, was less than convincing. 

Her argument that the site is a "bowl" and therefore, the sound will be contained, is illogical: it is open to the East. "Amphi", means "both sides" or "two sides", in this case, literally and figuratively. Anyone 
with local knowledge knows that sounds that emerge from the west travel up the Valley.
Ms. Bond states that the foot-print will be light, and fails to take into consideration the integrity of the eco-system that exists.
Her suggestion that my tax dollars be used to find a location for this project in Coldstream offends me. The host, Mr. Walker, asked why other locations such as Penticton, are not under consideration, to which she answered that there is not much public land on which to build. Has she contacted our First Nations? They are excellent community partners as noted in Osoyoos.

Petey Pabs As someone who lives right across the street to where they want to put the amphitheatre, I can assure you it is not a "fear of change" as the reason I'm opposed. I found her to be quite condescending in the interview.
