Vernon is becoming Mini Surrey *RANT*

The Vernon Army Camp is a fixture, the hospital looking good and the view of the mountains surrounding the area are a beautiful sight. And then the downtown itself sure looks inviting with all the different shops. Quaint might be the word.

I live in Vernon and have not had anything close to the experiences the OP has stated. I couldn't help but wonder if the OP is either very rude to others to create these types of responses or he/she is possibly off of an important medication.

Sure we have our issues like every city has, but my experience here has been nothing close to what has been described in the original post. :138:

Though not my favorite place,not ideal but i think it's getting better. I think i enjoy it more than Kelowna now.
I've known people in the past who always seemed to be the victim of stuff and if it wasn't for it they'd have nothing to talk about. Usually you look deeper there's always more to it.

Hate to say it OP,

If everyone around you seems like an Ahole, then odds are you are the Ahole.

I have lived in Vernon my whole life. I have definitely had the experience of red neck loser in truck cut me off and slam on the brakes because they believe I have wronged them in some way but it's not a common occurrence.
In terms of the other problems seems like every town. By law officers can be a little agressive and power hungry and we do have a disproportionate amount of roid monkey red necks but so does Kelowna etc.
Where can you live and have the climate, lakes, mountains and ski hills so close in Canada?
That's why real estate is expensive here. I'll put up with the other stuff because mostly it's awesome here. Seems weird that this apparently happened exactly in 2010?

Next time get a plate number and drive directly to the police station and file a complaint.

Wouldn't waste anytime getting there either.

Please do yourself a favor and invest in a dash cam. Idiots like that should not have the privilege of driving. Minor offences you could of had on camera.
