One could also read it as a big middle finger to someone who has been poking at the beehive of City Hall for every possible photo op. Don't forget that Jak was part of the Council that was mocked by this person. I was actually laughing my *bleep* off when I read about puppet Haynes standing up before Council with concerns about the possibility of the Casino relocating.
Why were the "stones" not at the Council meeting? Ya know, the boss? According to media reporting, all of a sudden he is conciliatory. "I have no problem with another Hotel as long as ......(insert perceived and premature assumption of subsidized assets here). The thing that must have really hurt was the admission that the Casino did not belong to or was beholden to his hotel. Prystay.... "The Casino only leases space from us".
How many people in Penticton actually realized that the Casino was just a tenant of space and did not belong to the Coast Lakeside Hotel?
Someone and his daddy are not sleeping very well these nights whilst they ponder the loss of the cash cow. Daddy might also be asking son about the wisdom of poking sticks into the eyes of City Council, and their staff, for photo ops and news bites.
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.
