Dear Editor:

Snubbing secondary suites in communities like Windermere or Fairmont is a shortsighted and, I would even argue, prejudiced move.

By narrowing the scope of the Regional District of East Kooteanys proposed secondary suites bylaw, youre limiting the options for people seeking affordable accommodations.

Essentially youre suggesting sectors of the population like young people, families or single parents, who cant necessarily afford to rent whole houses, are not welcome in some Columbia Valley communities.

Strong communities are composed from all sectors of the population, lets not limit ourselves here.
