The head of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association Fred Steele celebrated a record year for agriculture sales and profits (PentictonWestern News, Feb. 8, Record year for agriculture sales and profit).
In the same Western News, the same leader lamented the “fact” that deer are eating into their profits (BCFGA president callsfor deer cull). Which is it? Is the fruit business here doing well? Or, are the deer decimating it?
By the way, Mr. Mayor, the better word for deer, instead of calling them “rodent,” is actually “mammal.”
