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 O'Keefe Ranch has made its case to maintain the funding its gets from the City of Vernon. General Manager Glen Taylor says proposed cuts to start next year, could slow down the building upgrades and visitor growth they've seen, the last few years. "We're here to ask Vernon city council to go back and look at the decisions made in 2013 about the funding cuts," said Taylor Back in 2013, council decided to start reducing its 150-thousand dollar subsidy to the ranch by $50,000 in 2017, $50,000 in 2018, and $40,000 in 2019. That would leave the subsidy at just $10,000. Council will discuss the ranch's request at its next meeting May 24. The City of Vernon owns the heritage attraction.
