DON QUIXOTE VS. CITY HALL When an American gets mad, he says "where's my Gun". When a Canadian gets pissed off he says "Where is my pen, I'm going to send a letter to the EDITOR". When the EDITOR won't publish his letter he sets up his own BLOG page.
When I received enough support to get a Council Seat the dogma of the establishment became : "Better to have him inside the tent pissing out, than outside pissing in." (Only time will tell !)
The City of Vernon has reissued its line painting tender, after complaints the yellow and white lines on many city streets had all but disappeared. Staff point an accusing finger at an organic compound paint that has been used the last three years. Before that, oil-based paint was used for line painting but was discontinued due to a change in environmental regulations. The new contract will require the winning firm to measure the thickness of the paint, using a digital pavement marking measuring instrument, to ensure the application meets the terms of the contract. Staff say other options for line painting, such as a thermoplastic paint, were reviewed and rejected due to the expense. Based on local industry quotations, thermoplastic paint costs about $6 per metre, compared to 30 cents per metre for the organic compound paint, says a staff report.
