Work Begins at Intersection of LSL & Ferguson

I just wanted to post a quick update regarding the intersection of Louis St Laurent and Ferguson Drive.

As many of you remember, there has been a lot of concern about the safety of students in this area directly across from Craig Keilburger Secondary School and the lack of traffic control, especially during school hours.  Town Staff has confirmed with me that work has already started getting underground wiring installed for so that when the traffic lights are ordered/received, they can begin installation.  There is no timeframe as of yet to when it will be completed but its in progress. 

If you see workers at this intersection and wonder whats going on, its the preliminary setup for the traffic lights.

I’ll keep you posted on when the full lights/crosswalk will be installed when I get it.  As always, its imperative that you continue to communicate with the students of CKSS that they should cross the street with caution, not walk out into traffic and be safe in and around the school.  Its also important to remind drivers that they should exercise caution when driving in this area and obey the posted speed limits.

Thanks to everyone for their patience.  I’ll see you at the doors.

MOCKTAIL Competition May 12th at Milton Mall

A number of my councillor collegues have entered into a MOCKTAIL Competition on Saturday May 12th, 2012 at the Milton Mall.

Yours truly along with Mayor Gord Krantz, Councillors Zeeshan Hamid, Rick Di Lorenzo, Greg Nelson, Colin Best and Cindy Lunau will be providing our best mocktails for your sampling pleasure and you end up voting for the best ones (HINT Cluett Cool-Aid) with proceeds going to the Salvation Army as part of a nationwide food bank promotion.  The way it works is simple.

You sample the Mocktails from our group (HINT Cluett Cool-Aid) and place a donation for the corresponding mix. (HINT Cluett Cool-Aid)  Then you mock the rest of the group and CHEER for Cluett Cool-Aid!  Well, dont mock them as its not their fault.

I’m kidding.  It will be a blast and hopefully we can raise some money for the Salvation Army and our local food bank in Milton.

NOW, Im sure you’re going to ask this.  What if I cant make it?  THAT’S EASY!!  You can make a donation at anytime before hand, just send me an email and I will come pick it up from you.  Its that simple.

Each vote costs $2.00 but you can donate as much as you want either that day or before hand.  The more the better as I want to make sure the rest of my friends around the council table know that Cluett Cool-Aid is the ONLY way to go.
