Lights have been dimmed, making West Kelowna residents smile brightly.
The light pollution from the Bell Media Tower, located along the Benvoulin Driving Range, was visible from across the lake.
Residents of West Kelowna voiced their concerns and Dan Albas, Central Okanagan—Similkameen—Nicola MP, and West Kelowna Mayor Gord Milson took action.
On Aug. 9, Milson sent a letter to Albas, thanking him for his work on the initiative.
A good example where different levels of government and private industry could work together to address local concerns…my thanks to all involved: pic.twitter.com/MJqRuL3Umb— Dan Albas MP (@DanAlbas) August 29, 2022
The mayor also noted that Bell Media worked with government to promptly resolve the issue.
Albas tweeted that the project is a “good example where different levels of government and private industry could work together to address local concerns.”
