The Delta Grand was the meeting place for this month's Chamber Luncheon.
Norm Letnick, M-L-A for Kelowna/Lake Country, Steve-Thompson, M-L-A Kelowna/Mission and Ben Stewart, M-L-A West-side Kelowna were guest speakers.
Some of the issues discussed including expanding the open skies agreement, as only 11 out of 78 countries are allowed to fly straight into Canada for the 2010 Olympics. Letnic says that will affect tourism in the OKanagan during the olympics if we aren't more accessible.
Other issues included greenhouse gas emissions, supporting local agriculture by buying locally and maintaing our water supply.
