Great news. The North Okanagan Regional District has purchased 1,000 feet of Okanagan Lake waterfront in Vernon. This is terrific news for future generations.

Great buy! But be forewarned. You could end up with some incompetents elected a few years from now that think leasing part of that waterfront to a commercial interest to build a water slide is a great idea.....as is happening in Penticton right now.

"The development of the property will be subject to an RDNO park planning process, following which the park will be opened to the public."

I really hope that it was a condition of sale by the church that these lands forever be parkland that will not be developed for commercial purposes. Vernonites, please learn from Penticton's example/mistake. The term "Park Lands" is meaningless if the NORD includes such a broad list of permitted uses within those lands that it could allow such a travesty of use as is occurring in Penticton right now.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
