    To continue your thoughts a little bit further. Greece is the birthplace of democracy and yet I believe it was aristophenes who walked about the streets of Athens carrying a burning lantern in the daylight and stopped to examine citizens along his way and when asked what he was about, he replied, “I’m looking for an honest man.” All we would have to do in this community is stand at the entrance to the municipal office and stop every male entering the building to say that our quest was in vain.”

    What Joni says involves a great deal of common sense…something which is not outlined in the STRATEGIC PLAN and therefore is of no use in contemplating new policies. Also the PLAN does not indicate any concern as to what the policies therein would cost…There must be a money tree blooming in the municipal office building unbeknownst to us lowly taxpayers. Perhaps a well placed definition of common sense should be printed on a large banner and installed on the front window of the municipal office. Perhaps some of the wisdom just MIGHT rub off.

    There is no money tree. They have controlled taxes by deferring many things in public works to pay for all of there administrative changes .These things in public works will cost us a small fortune and the next council will bare the brunt of the pain that this council created. They also raised every fee and charge they could think of in order to try and keep up with the gravy train. The mare is totally out of control and the 6 lemmings are just along for the ride. How at least one or two of these guys are not fighting the mare on some of these issues is unbelievable. The newsletter is just the last example of the BS this guy has shovelled. When or if the truth ever comes out it will astonish most.

    We are not talking about the sand truck that doesn’t have a sand box or the Vaccum truck that we did not have the funds to fix since November of last year are we?

    John, thanks for sharing some very interesting reading. Sadly the topic of gutless, shameless liars prancing about as politicians has become very old to the point that in my town in Ontario, we are weary of the whole goddamn lot of them. They are collectively bringing Canada to its knees as they continue to spend us out of existence. BUT, we the voters keep
    putting them back in office. We are our own worst enemy. Take care.

    The only thing importend to this mare and council is ego tripping. They have never been in charge of anything,, they always had to follow orders,and do as they were told This is a typical brain washed bunch that even needs consultans to tell them what to do. These signs and all this spending just shows their ignorance as to what is really important. It sure is not the people in the community. What a bunch of loosers.

    So, where is this auction taking place, and how do we get to hear about it? I don’t see anything on the Municipal website. Or is it a(nother) secret?
