Re. Poor bashing at the Courtenay Library.
I think I will challenge Coun. Hillian’s motion: put on old clothes, buy my first cigarettes in 30 years and go down to chat up my friends on my sidewalk at my library. Smoke up a storm and maybe even fall asleep inside my library, reading The Economist.
Then I will move up the street and loiter under the Thrifty’s “No Loitering” sign on my sidewalk until the police come to check me out and move me on.
Our Courtenay councillors have been unanimous in this poor bashing; marching in step with past councils.
Remember the refusal to allow cheap rental suites on Cumberland Road, or the 4-Square Church’s attempt to build social housing, the shelter debacle, the Maple Pool fiasco, those homeless squatters driven out of the park, their few possessions (put) into a dumpster and off to Pigeon Lake?
New council, same old B.S., right off the bat. So soon, so sad.
