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 !)
Two companies at the exclusive golfing community known as The Rise in Vernon have announced plans to create a destination resort. The Rise Golf has purchased 25 acres of land adjoining the golf course in order to add a state-of-the-art practice facility and a clubhouse. The practice facility is set to open in 2017. The land was purchased from The Rise Development Ltd. “It’s been a great year at The Rise Golf. We’ve been working to set a solid foundation,” said general manager Ian Renton. “We’re grounded in sustainability, a beautiful and dynamic landscape and innovation. Now, with this new land and a shared vision with The Rise Development, we’re going to expand on that foundation — move forward and create a true destination.” Next to the newly purchased land, the development group is currently building a 36-villa subdivision called Belago. “We’re curating the entire experience,” said Bruce McRitchie, board secretary. “It’s a distinctive place where the sky, land and lake meet. People will want to visit and won’t want to leave.” Meanwhile, a 543 acre parcel of land at The Rise remains up for sale for $24 million, confirmed Marshall MacLeod, vice-president of Colliers International of Vancouver. The land was put up for sale by the Calgary owners last month.
