In all fairness in other industries (oil forensic sampling, chemical analysis, etc.) most samples are sent to labs across the provinces and efficiently returned by a courier. While I hate seeing jobs being lost to Southern Ontario, how is this making our health care worse? The service is still going to be provided.

Using a crane is such a cheesy bad idea. If you are going to do it, do it on a permanent light pole like in Times Square. The ball could be shaped like our logo on two sides and the sponsor. of the year on the other two sides. That way the ball could serve as advertising for both the City and the sponsor all year long when left at full mast.

Under the Municipal Act, every motion needs a mover and a seconder for the item on the agenda to be allowed to be discussed by council. Doesn't necessarily mean that the person or person(s) support the agenda item as presented. Sometimes a discussion can approve a part or variant of the proposal or request that more information be obtained for council to consider at a later time and the motion is deferred.

This councilor is out of touch with reality. She should have done some preliminary homework concerning cost, benefits, rate of return, and a risk analysis BEFORE presenting such an "idea" to council. Reading some idea off the internet that a community installed somewhere in the world doesn't mean that it will work or meet the needs of THIS city... It has nothing to do with being "world-class".

This is a blight on our public roadways and should not be allowed. They look horrible, gaudy, and are gruesome. Some people go overboard putting up tents, lights etc. They also pose a distraction hazard to other motorists. People should erect a memorial in their own yard if they feel that they need a constant reminder.

Should the city check your credentials before we allow you to build or buy something in the city? Nobody needs a Nanny State.

Why don't you put up your own cash and build homes for the homeless? Would you like a homeless shelter built right beside your $400-500K home? Also, this won't be an ideal area for housing the homeless, it is far removed from the social and economic resources those people often need.

Besides, every housing unit built can free up another lower-income housing unit as some people upgrade to meet their needs.

Not only is this embarrassing, it's sad. Too many parents and teachers do not instill the value of hard work and innovation in our kids. The kids have it too easy and the parents pay their way into post-secondary education; a $1,000 scholarship is nothing to scoff at. Too many kids are unmotivated and lazy because of it. We are falling behind the rest of the industrialized world in terms of producing brilliant young educated leaders.

Until our legal system gets serious about putting drug dealers in prison for 10-20 years, this problem will only get worse. Too many drugs coming up from southern Ontario by large dealers who largely get a slap on the wrist and our local usual suspects who act as their drug mules are in a constant Kangaroo Court and back on the streets. This is what you get with Liberal socialist soft on crime policies and laws.

So you are saying that a person or company should not be allowed to buy real estate in another city or province? If that was the case many people would not have cottages and there would be no companies investing in apartments and businesses. Do you even understand why people or corporations form a numbered company?
