Mayor’s Column – June 27, 2018

June 27, 2018   Contrary to the ideology promoted by special interest groups I could name, it’s not about money. Certainly not now (maybe it never was). Certainly not on this side of the divide!

Mayor’s Column – May 30, 2018

May 30, 2018 We are still talking caribou. Why, you might wonder? The answer is simple but the solution is bafflingly complex with multiple interest groups pumping their polarized perspectives – real or imagined. From the office of the Mayor I can look directly into the northern extremity of the land base of the Quintette…
