Town councillors were missing in the parade
I watched the Ponoka Stampede Parade last Friday and I was very disappointed with the parade. There was the usual MLAs in the parade and the floats. But what was missing was the town councillors who decided not to ride in the parade, the small town mayors of surrounding communities and the marching bands.
I voted for some of the town councillors in the last town election and the very least that they could do was to ride in the Stampede parade. I was let down and very disappointed. They may have cost themselves some votes in the next town election.
I hope that next year the town councillors would ride in the Ponoka Stampede parade along with the mayors of surrounding communities.
