Letter: Bothered by camps

Same laws for all

Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

If you or I set up camp for the weekend to just hang out we would be whisked away quite quickly by police. Failing to follow a speed limit will land you a hefty fine.

So why can’t the law be followed in this case? The answer is simple… We choose which laws to enforce or not through social media today. The outcry would be over the top to have these law-breaking people moved out. Would not be the case if it was you or I. We have laws for a reason and I hope soon we get a council and police service that upholds them, not just the ones popular to a select few. My answer to those is to have them set up camp at your house. Bet your neighbour will love that.
