I really appreciate the Penticton Western News and our Mayor Jakubeit
having his own column in the paper, however, I don't think our mayor
reads letters to the editor.

If he did, and Supt. de Jager also did, they would realize that drugs,
and the City of Penticton and its local RCMP detachments willfully
ignoring this rampant drug use, is by far the number one cause of crime.

I live beside a City of Penticton owned drug house that was in
business for almost four years. The city said they were evicted in
June, with new locks, but the place is as disgusting as ever - still
vehicles parked in the yard and some of the renters still come and

There is something very cancerous growing in the city that comes with
the drug trade. City hall and Mr. de Jager's RCMP do not look innocent
to me.
