  1. Hello.
    I am a senior wanting to move to Summerland BC, to have a nice peaceful life.
    I do know from experience that a prison in a growing place WOULD STUMP THE GROWTH AND THE ECONOMY OF THE CITY; ALSO IT WILL HELP CRIME GROW RAPIDLY.
    THEREFORE I AM AGAINST THIS PRISON, BECAUSE PRISONS DO NOT REFORM PEOPLE’S ATTITUDE.
    IF IT DID WHY DO WE NEED MORE PRISONS?
    WHAT WE NEED IS PEOPLE WITH GOD CONSCIOUSNESS –THE TRUE CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD AND THE WILLINGNESS TO BE REFORMED OF OUR SHORTCOMINGS. WE ARE INTELLIGENT HUMANS NOT SOME PRIMATES.
    THANKS FOR ALLOWING MY OPINION.
    Sincerely. Ariel

  2. It has always amazed me how the same tactics work on the public over and over. Council puts out a small obscure online poll and when they get the number they want, they discontinue it then say, see MOST people think its a good idea ! Knowing full well the herd mentallity will help sway the lazy thinkers. Problem reaction solution. It has worked throughout history and continues to work . Please stop and think if you had someone you cared about would you want them exposed to a contant stream of released inmates?No? Niether does anyone else…look at re offend statistics in Canada and ask yourself does the system work? Why in Canada do we pay 120 000$ plus per yer to house a convicted criminal but only 11 000 $ a year for a students education? Is this a good investment? Is it moral, or is it out of ignorance? If prisons were places where inmates had to work at 5 in the morning in harsh conditions perhaps people would think twice before commiting crimes against their fellow citizens. A prison in the okanagan would be a country club for these thugs. A place to hit the gym and maybe catch some rays or read a book before dinner is served. This is NO deterrent…If we want to make them productive members of society ,how about making them productive members of society? Put them to work ! or at least put them somewhere they really don’t want to be.
