Hmmm . . . Obviously not a professor of economics!

Let’s make Vernon better. One day a month, the handicapped and disabled receive a good discount at all businesses downtown. Move the airport. Build highrises, like Vancouver, where the airport is. Build a new Costco in Vernon. New car racing track.

Here’s a snapshot look at our council candidates. I’ve researched, visited websites and know who I will be voting for. I hope our citizens of Vernon go out and vote on the candidate of their choice. Good luck to all candidates and thanks for stepping up no matter your ambitions.

Lmao! It’s a regional airport off of Tronson. A lot of smaller planes and skydivers utilize it. Not to mention close proximity to OK Lake for helicopters for firefighting!

Definitely valuable for Firefighting. It is also a vital link for Medivacs, and there are businesses located on the airport. It is a valuable amenity for the community.

I totally agree. I live directly across from it. I’m always amazed by the activity and the businesses, ie upholstery, helicopters, etc that are here. Ps, I hope Sky High Diner is back. They are amazing
