Yes. And not even with the decency to use lube.

Today(3:30) rode my bike past a canopy, that was set up by the Ogopogo, that was promoting "Kelowna Downtown"with brochures etc.
Seems to me that's all that is needed--incidentally, she wasn't busy the two times I went by.

Looks like the City and Tourism Kelowna had it all planned out a long time ago ....and to think our pleas for an intervention from the Province were actually being considered?

Plan to break ground this fall - yet they felt the need to close the only deep water launch literally days after the city rubber-stamped them at the public hearing early this year.

A $500,000 grant from us, BC taxpayers just to watch the White Elephant Tourist Center flail around.


https://www.castanet.net/edition/news-s ... htm#200642

But because even their nice artwork shows no room for GASP, real visitors with vehicles, RVs, trailers, and the like, they'll declare, "the number of visits no longer warrents having it here" and sell it for pennies on the dollar to the nearest bidder, West Corp. coinincidentaly right across the street.

Who wants to put a buck on it?

I'd put a LOT of money on it.

They sell themselves like cheap hookers and we pick up the mess afterwards. Filthy squalid business.

Let's see where the costs for this work come in. If I recall the city cost to provide the utilities was to be in the order of $40K; pretty hard to imagine that a month of construction work will only cost $40K.

Another spit in the face of the everyday taxpayer and the continual (blatant) perks for the special interest groups and individuals in this city.
