Dear Editor:

Im writing regarding the article in the March 18th issue of The Pioneer titled RDEK spends big money on conservation. I would like to point out an error in the statement, It shows great leadership by the people of Areas F and G.

This statement implies that the fund is only supported by the electoral areas when, in fact, all of the Columbia Valley, including the three municipalities (Canal Flats, Invermere and Radium), contribute to the Columbia Valley Local Conservation fund.

As one of the Columbia Valley Directors, I am very proud of the work that is being done with this fund and would appreciate that the credit will go where it is due and include everyone.
