Re: (‘TNRD approves spending $100,000 on monument to wildfire volunteers,’ Nov. 16 issue):
What were the powers that be in the regional district thinking when approving this amount of money?
I am almost certain a majority of the wildfire volunteers would not be comfortable with hearing about $100,000 being spent on another monument and I hope these volunteers express their opinions.
From what I have read, a dinner is also being planned for the volunteers.
I think this is a nice gesture and perhaps a small plaque could be affixed to the 2003 wildfire monument outside the TNRD Building at Victoria Street and Fifth Avenue.
There are so many charitable ways $100,000 could be spent to help those less fortunate in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District.
