Ontario says thanks West K.

I just wanted to say thank you to the city of West Kelowna for your hospitality.  

My husband & I travelled from Ontario to the Yukon and Alaska and by the time we arrived in Vernon knew that we had brake problems and needed an oil change. We went to the local Ford dealer in Vernon as our motorhome is a Ford 450 chassis, they were close, and we were afraid to drive too far. They informed us that they only look at motorhomes on Saturdays and were booked to the end of the month.

We then left Vernon for  Kelowna, were warmly welcomed by Okanagan RV park, who referred us to Kal Tire at Industrial Rd.  They booked us in immediately, determined that we did need brakes badly and went above and beyond for us.  

To top it all off, my bicycle got a flat tire while we were here, and we were referred to Outbound Cycle who repaired it for us right then and there. How impressive!!  We won't forget to refer those who deserve it and will certainly remember those who would let a traveller go down a mountain road with bad brakes.
