Better name needed for intersection

Dear Editor

It was with great interest that I read the articles concerning Heritage Week and specifically the intention to name our three roundabouts.

As an “armchair historical geographer” I love reading about our pioneers and their early efforts which resulted in our present day community.

I do believe however, that if we start naming geographic features after negative things, such as naming our newest roundabout after someone killed at that location, we are starting down a slippery slope.

As per the attached photo, (courtesy of Summerland Museum), perhaps a more positive direction would be to name our newest roundabout after the pioneer family whose house you tore down, to build the roundabout!
