Positive vibe at council

Council is reviewing many areas as well as looking into concerns as they arise within our community.

Council is reviewing many areas as well as looking into concerns as they arise within our community.

In order to move in a positive direction we, the council, will make diligent decisions for the greater good of all; this is why we are elected. In doing this, there will always be a few within our community that will disagree. They are usually the ones that exercise their voice in their fullest ability and that is OK also. It takes us all to make a healthy debate and to make our community great. In saying this, please remember that the problems of the community cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics, whose horizons are limited by their obvious realities.

I believe it would be a collective failure not to make hard choices and prepare the community for a new age.

We would like to thank the community for the tremendous positive support so far through email, electronic media and comments throughout the streets of our town.


There is a definite, positive vibe in Sicamous and remember, it is you, the people, that make our community what it is.
