Those with memories of how street was many years ago, will continue to call it Suicide Hill.

I will remember scaring the :cuss: out of myself as I got air off at least 1, then having to slam on brakes before the 27th st. After that day I had whole lot of respect for the stretch of 30th ave.

Suddenly I wish they had dash cams when you were young Gordon,
I would have enjoyed seeing your scare there.
I would love to hear some of your stories anytime you care to share them. You have seen lots of changes, and probably have some amazing things to share.

I grew up in Thompson Shuswap area, once I got d/l I would go to Vernon whenever I didn’t have work on the farm (which was rare).

Yeah, why go to the massive expense to rename a street? They should leave the name as Suicide Hill so the parents and friends of people who've taken their own lives will have a good reminder of their loss every time they hear about Suicide Hill. Rub their noses in it real good and proper.

Can I suggest a name?

How about " The Hill Formerly known as Suicide Hill " ?

LOL has not bothered a single soul since the beginning of the hill and its name till the lefty liberal PC started to take over our lives its ridiculous that the subject has even surfaced ;; move on its not of any concern to 99.9% of the people

Many suicide victims (not necessarily all) in their own way tend to send out little signs of their intention. Unfortunately many people don’t pay close enough attention to pick up on these little signs of looking for help.
