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 !)
Would you like a bottle of Chardonnay with that salmon? The Real Canadian Superstore on Anderson Way is the first grocery store in the Vernon area to stock B.C. wines on the shelves – and just before Christmas. The bottles of red and white were put out for customers on Thursday morning. “It's provincially regulated as you know,” said Mayor Akbal Mund. “They decided to put wine in here because this (Superstore) is one of the busiest locations they have in Western Canada. “Do I feel it will affect the liquor stores? Probably not.” However Mund's optimistic view point is not shared by independent liquor store owners in the area. In August, the group appeared before city council asking for municipal regulations, such as a one-kilometre distance rule between all retailers of alcohol. However, in September, council decided to opt out of the matter and leave all regulations to the province. “It's a matter of convenience,” said Mund. “People will still go a liquor store to buy liquor and for more choice. If anything, there will be more wine sold in B.C.”
