The drive across Head of the Lake through Spallumcheen is one of the Okanagan's great intermezzos. Then one day billboards appeared.
If these first billboards were advertising anything, it was their availability, in the meantime blocking what was once a shimmering view.
Capitalist vulgarian Jimmy Pattison has seven billboards like this one lined up in a row, waiting. The First Nations band that licensed this space to Pattison, they are waiting too.
