While it is true that you will find both good and bad people anywhere, towns and cities do develop certain qualities that reflect the nature of the majority of residents, or at least that of the local 'ruling class'.
Over the years we have lived in redneck nut-job towns, liberal weenie towns, big cities, small villages... in Canada, the U.S. and Europe. Inevitably, we have made comparisons, and our fifteen year 'sentence' (career) in Kelowna has created a dislike for the place that grows with each passing year. It is a heartless, soulless community, a town of boosterism, endless vanities, and good ol' boy manipulations, all rolled up into one big polluting fattie guaranteed to make you high on the place if you're willing to believe the hype.
We plan to make our escape before we become so hopelessly Kelownianated that we can no longer crawl our way back up into the fresh air.
