There is a grocery store, but it is hardly and easy walk especially if someone is carrying something. Many many blocks.

Probably half hour walk and I see people walk that distance carrying a few groceries. It's doable. Or take a bus.

There's Save on Foods there, I'd say 20-minute walk or 5-minute bike ride. There's a number of convenience stores nearby.

And there's probably a barber shop, bank etc. nearby. Are the same amenities in Kettle Valley? I don't live there either.

The closest grocery store to Kettle Valley is Sunshine market. Down the hill. Probably a good hour walk. Closest bank is god knows where.

Although they do have a great pizza place.

City Council would just argue this is a clinic which is different than Freedom's Door.
