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 !)
Cash needed to pay for the building of an ice sheet next year at Kal Tire Place is expected to be borrowed in the spring – the same time construction begins. North Okanagan Regional District directors gave the OK on Wednesday to a security issuing bylaw that allows district staff to take the next step in the borrowing process. Figures show just over $13 million will be borrowed to pay for the arena, at an estimated 2.4 per cent interest rate, that will be paid back over 20 years. Members of the public approved the borrowing in a referendum a year ago. The new ice would replace the old Civic Arena which has a host of problems that Vernon Recreation staff say could lead to failure at any time. Building work is not expected to start until next March.
