(The Enbridge decision came down too late for deadline today)
Developers in town are having a really difficult time getting plans through city hall – endless changes, often redundant or contradictory. One waterfront condo development has been going thru the process for FOUR years! Still not through. And they’ve had to deal with 3 separate city planners… the city’s motto is ‘Open For Business’. And our library is still in the basement of city hall even after locations have been chosen, public meetings have been held, architectural drawings were done years ago, etc., etc.
Library wars continue – most Powell Riverites (with the exception of the rabid nay-sayers) are beyond bored with the contretemps – you guys who don’t live here must be practically catatonic with the subject. Nevertheless, the paper continues to air both sides, hence today’s offering: (PS The current tiny library is located in the basement of City Hall.) PPS sweltering weather continues.
Sorry about last few weeks – various things in the way. Today’s toon concerns the enormous worry everyone had about the tail of Tropical Storm Ana hitting the coast. We have – er – significant weather – but certainly not a hurricane type situation.
Happy Hallowe’en, Happy Municipal Voting Day to Ontario people (I’m assuming Ford Light won’t be taking office?!!) – our vote is a bit later.
