To ODN – thanks for publishing this! Where else would the average person learn about this?
RDOS is autocratic, secretive and self generating.
Go to the website – find the BYLAW NO 2809, 2018 Elector Response Form (not an easy task for non computer people) Print it – fill it out if you are not happy with the process and then figure out where to send it. 101 Martin St; Penticton BC V2A5J9?
I am in favour of a transit system – not in favour of a transit system like Translink on the lower mainland where our money is their money; not answerable to anyone.

Pay attention to this one people. To vote against it only means that it must go to referendum it will not kill this initiative. If it goes to referendum you will see more public discussion on this and that is important. Giving B.C. Transit carte blanche has created a money gobbling machine in the lower mainland. The taxpayers in this area are already under great duress. We need to think very hard and possibly consider all options before jumping into this social experiment.
The residents inside the towns get to vote on this also and many do not realize that when they see the RDOS brand.
Be careful with this one it could cost you dearly.
Do not give up control on this.
One other point, this is happening at the absolute worst time of the year as most are in their peak workload and many of those who will have to pay for this will not even be aware of it.

Neil, I Hope you’re going to run for RDOS director. You always have your eagle eye perspective on every issue and it would be useful at the board table.
What worries me is that without Greyhound passenger service… and if we don’t establish a local transit service that connects the existing Osoyoos/ Penticton and the Princeton/ Penticton to a service that connects to Kelowna from Penticton (and is coordinated to do so) there may be a problem for some folks trying to get to medical treatment.
I’m pretty sure that nothing would actually go ahead without public input re scheduling or financial contribution from Summerland, Peachland or West Kelowna.

Use of the Alternative Approval Process is just wrong! It seems that if they want something they know or are sure won’t pass they use this process to get what they want. It’s hard enough or just about impossible to get the required amount of voters out to stop what they want passed and so they get what they want, not a real democratic way to operate. More like it’s being shoved down our throats, like say Russia and Putin would do. It seems that our elected officials want us to just say yes or keep our mouths shut and let them do what they say is in our best interest. It seldom works out that way, and you know what we get in the end.
