Re: the Aug. 3 letter, it seems Ted Wiltse should never own a gun. His plan to slaughter God’s innocent creatures is appalling. He should spend time with the First Nations to learn respect of nature’s innocent creatures.
Where I grew up there was always deer on the road. People here just have to learn how to drive with nature in their surroundings, not slaughter everything with a heartbeat that might run on the road. I was brought up in the backwoods of Ontario where we hunted/killed only for food. The one time (at 13 years old) I killed a black squirrel showing off my marksman skills to my cousin, and was caught by my father, resulted in squirrel for my supper … lesson learned. Maybe Ted Wiltse has a real big freezer. Myself, I quite enjoy deer in my back yard … much better than released convicts that Mike Pearce would have here if he had his own way. Seems the scum we have in Penticton lately is far more than we need or want without adding criminals of similar calibre into Penticton or near it.
Ted Wiltse is quick to also bash Garry Litke, who is the only person I have seen so far show a positive future for Penticton. I have asked him personally about the property at the old Nanaimo Hall for a cultural events centre, and that is property he wants reserved for financial better times. I am afraid to think what Mike Pearce would do with it. Garry Litke is a family man with young children and wants a future for not only his children, but all the residents of Penticton. He said to me his positive plans are reflected on when Penticton is in positive financial times. This is called positive future planning, not a spending spree that previous administrations have so enjoyed. So yes Ted Wiltse, taxpayers and residents need to consider carefully their vote in the upcoming election. I (and so many I know) will vote “Yes” to Garry Litke for whatever he runs for, and “Yes” to a positive future for Penticton.
