UPDATE: Kelowna City Clerk, Stephen Fleming has confirmed the same letter using City of Kelowna letterhead has also been circulated. Fleming says the Kelowna letter was dated June 28 and also bore the signature of Susan Smith. As opposed to directing people to contact the premier, the Kelowna forgery asked people to direct their outrage to the Ministry of Environment. City of Kelowna officials contacted the ministry advising of the letter.
The Penticton RCMP is investigating a fraudulent letter that began circulating in the city on Monday.
According to Sgt. Rick Dellebuur, bogus alert notices regarding hazardous chemtrails were put on vehicles at Shoppers Drug Mart.
The letter has city letterhead, but was not issued by the city.
"There is no environmental department in the city and Penticton did not issue this," he said.
The letter signed by someone named Susan Smith, environmental department manager, states "we are suspecting that unidentified planes are deliberately spraying chemicals over the city of Penticton."
It further covers how to identify hazardous chemtrails and who to contact if you see them.
Dellebuur said they are investigating to see who is behind this.
"We are following up on leads," he said. "It's just one of those things out there in this day and age."
