Nomination

Seems like someone nominated me for Best Local Blog. WOW. We will see how the process goes but (insert shameless plug here) if you’d like to let them know about my blog…go ahead and let them know 😉 Thanks everyone.

Stunts failed

As I mentioned last post, the Green Party of Canada has been doing its best to get “into the picture” and be relevant to Canadians. A few months back, Elizabeth May and Stephane Dion came up with a “deal” that she would run against Peter MacKay and the Liberal party would run no one against…

Talk about future tax increases

A number of friends have sent me an email to let me know a letter to the Milton Canadian Champion editorial department was printed in this Friday’s paper. Thanks to everyone who noticed. The letter is pretty much word for word what my last posting talked about and I’ve received a number of emails from…

Never ending story

It’s another long weekend in Milton. Schools are all out and kids are running around their homes as we speak trying to find something to keep them busy. I know Anthony is ready to do something … and fast. That’s why I love the summer. He loves it too, like driving his bike to the…

Where will ward one go

Is the town making the right decision by looking at changing the ward boundries in Milton? By the sounds of this letter to the Champion last week, they might be jumping the gun. Milton resident Robert Harris states that the Town of Milton should wait until the Region of Halton completes its “Sustainable Halton” plan…

Does this make sense to you?

Flipping through some on-line news this morning and I came upon a story from CBC News that made my jaw drop. After reading it, tell me if you don’t feel the same way. The way it looks is like the City of Toronto WANTS their councillors to spend money and then punishes those who take…

Yates Drive and March Crossing

Just the mere mention of that intersection causes many residents in the area to roll their eyes. Why? We have seen many near misses of vehicles driving down Yates from Thompson Road with cars coming out of March Crossing. This weekend was no different. Lets go back in time to this past summer around the…

Is the Green Cart program enough

  The Region of Halton recently announced that it was going forward with a Green Cart Program to help reduce the amount of waste that heads to our landfill site. In case people are unaware of where that landfill site is, take a trip down 25 (Bronte Road) south of Derry and you will soon…

Every Vote DOES Count

As many of you are aware, there was a provincial election recently. The campaign seemed to go on forever since Premier Dalton McQuinty closed down Queens Park early this summer and thus the rubber hit the road. During that campaign there was a referendum on our voting system that we, as voters, had to figure…
