Petitioner thanks Keremeos residents for their time

To all the residents of Keremeos, thank you for graciously accepting my presence in your homes

To the Editor:

To all the residents of Keremeos, thank you for graciously accepting my presence in your homes, signing my petition, listening to my presentation, and receiving views and opinions on the transient problem and the resultant feed back received in presentation of my submission to the council meeting of July 7.

To the 47 residents who were not home at the time of my calling, I am sorry I missed you. To the six residents who chose to disagree, thank you for your reasons in doing so.

In the July 10 issue of the Review it was stated that I had refused to speak to a member of the transient community. This is incorrect. I have never been approached, nor would I refrain from talking to any member of the public, transient, picker or otherwise.   The Review has been notified of this inaccuracy.

My personal opinion is that this council does not possess the capacity or the capabililty in solving this very difficult problem.  Reference a comment from the village CAO, “ I don’t know what we are going to do” (Review, July 03/14).

On November 15 we as taxpayers of this village have an opportunity to express our democratic right by our vote at the ballot box.  I urge you to do so.   Maybe we can change the present culture at the village hall, after all “change is just as good as a rest”.

Once again, thank you.

Ted Douglas, Keremeos
