LETTERS: Sibling rivals White Rock

Editor:

I had occasion to visit LaConnor within the past few weeks and was surprised upon entering the area to see the sign indicating it is a sister-city to White Rock.

LaConnor is a lovely little place to visit – a definite tourist attraction. Comparing it to White Rock, which has become the ‘ugly sister,’ is a total misnomer.

As much as White Rock has become devoid of charm – with highrises and condo after condo crowding the landscape, thus making trucks rumbling up and down through town a necessary evil, to say nothing of the now even more incessant disturbance from train whistles – so LaConnor has remained quaint and inviting.

Those of you who can recall the White Rock of old; for me it is 1985. Keep the image in your mind, as that is all that remains.
