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 !)
B.C.’s premier is defending the process at a dangerous local intersection. Many residents insist the Ministry of Transportation has ignored their calls for a traffic signal at Highway 97 and Stickle Road. “Some times people mean they didn’t get the answer they wanted,” said Christy Clark while on a Vernon stop Wednesday. The ministry is planning a ban on left-turns from Stickle Road on to the highway and a one-way extension of 20th Street into Vernon on the east side of Stickle Road. “The ministry has come to a good compromise,” said Clark. Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA, is adamant the public has not been ignored. “The ministry held several public meetings,” he said. “The original plan was scrapped the ministry reached an agreement with the business association.” The Swan Lake Business Corridor Association recently indicated it would accept the ministry’s plans and drop demands for a traffic signal. If the ministry’s current design moves ahead, it could take two years for the $9.5 million project to be constructed, with work starting as early as this fall.
