MANY municipalities, says letter writer, have signs welcoming visitors such as this one at Telkwa just east of Smithers.

Letter writer backs ‘Welcome to Thornhill’ signs

Bob Erb congratulates Ted Ramsey for sign project

Dear Sir:

I’ve lived in Thornhill for 44 of my 47 years in Terrace and area.

I do so by choice.

I don’t mind chickens in the neighbourhood or several vehicles next door. The lots are larger and people more relaxed.

When I travel to Prince George and pass through Rose Lake and then a couple of kilometres further through Decker Lake, neither has a sign reading ‘Welcome to Burns Lake”, which is just another couple of kilometres down the road.

Returning to Terrace, I drive through Telkwa which has a sign that says “Welcome to Telkwa,” not Smithers which is just down the road.

I can say much the same about the central Okanagan. Rutland has a sign welcome people to Rutland, not Kelowna.

Thornhill has street addresses with postal codes reading Thornhill, not Terrace.

Thornhill was settled by many homestead families. None with the last name of Little.

Good job, Ted Ramsey.

Bob Erb, Thornhill, B.C.
