Poor radio election coverage

Station gave results of most towns in the Valley except Hope

First of all, congratulations to all who ran for office. You are all winners just for running. What a country we have – you can run for this high office for very little money.

Looks like you will have to break the kids legs to beat him at the gate.

They made a movie once called “No Country For Old Men.” Looks like it’s true. This may be my last letter to the editor from this old man (ha!).

Regarding our radio station. I was driving Saturday night at 11 p.m. and the radio gave results of most towns in the Valley except Hope. The radio announcer said we had to Google Hope. What are we, second class citizens? I stopped my car and got my cell phone out of the trunk to get the results.

I think local businesses should pull their advertising off Chilliwack radio. There are other ways. How about this paper or just give good service as word of mouth gets real results.

Hang loose you all.

Dick Gardner,

Hope, B.C.
