Letter: Arts facilities are not restricted to the elite

Editor:

There are many facilities in Kamloops that I do not use.

I am not a hockey fan and so rarely set foot in our many arenas to watch hockey or large scale performances.

I am not a softball or soccer enthusiast so I do not frequent our beautiful playing fields or bleachers in which to watch. I do not use TCC, Westsyde Pool or any other indoor sports facility.

I do, however recognize the immense value in these facilities and choose to support their existence — not for myself but for all of the Kamloops citizens that choose to use them. Kamloops needs to be a well-rounded and all inclusive community. This enhances our liveability and attracts many professionals that we all depend on.

The Kamloops Symphony and Western Canada Theatre are not restricted to the elite.

The KSO has free concerts for anyone to attend and WCT has pay-what-you-can productions.

Both organizations are long-standing supporters of our community and continue to support on a daily basis.

Kamloops is a diverse and exciting community.

Let's continue to grow in a way that supports our diversity.
