Small space not so great for museum

I have lived in the Sicamous area for 59 years, so I have seen many, many things improve and be beneficial to all – children, adults and seniors.

I have lived in the Sicamous area for 59 years, so I have seen many, many things improve and be beneficial to all – children, adults and seniors. There also have been some not-so-great things; i.e. too many condos, highest gas prices ever, the access to Highway #1 before the bridge, horrible speed bumps on Cambie Solsqua Road, and now this supposedly wonderful new building that was supposed to improve so many things. The only good part of that building is the library.

What happened to a nice big area museum?

I had, in my mind, envisioned the top floor, instead of a tiny little room that will not ever be big enough. So much wasted space in hallways and offices.

I know I’m not the only one feeling this way.
