Fed up with Tolko smoke

Tolko, please leave the Okanagan Valley.  

Your pollution might be within a weak guideline set by the government, but I witness the smog emanating from your Kelowna mill wafting down the valley.

I’m so fortunate to live in Kelowna, but I am sure your emissions effect us all.  

In the weak government guidelines, the emissions caused by the hundreds of semi trucks coming and going from your plant are not considered.  

Now and for too many years, the semis are responsible for traffic congestion and accidents on our highways.  

I feel for the workers, but it’s time to go. It's strange that protesters don't consider the smog from this plant an issue of grave concern.

G. Levy, Kelowna
