"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Don't Fix Bayonets Yet

Councillor Abel has drawn council's attention,to concern about a fee charged to register for something called e-play.

It will be brought up at Council and we will all know everything we didn't know we needed to know about the fee charged for registration for e-play.

I am not going to pretend to know anything about e-play.

I do know busy parents complained for years about having to line up with hundreds of others for hours to register their kids for recreation programs.

Sometimes to be informed the programs are full.

So on-line registration was something people were demanding.

Whether it can be done in house at no cost to registrants, I do not know.

Whether e-play is some other kind of a deal, I do not know.

I do know, it is obviously a subject that needs to be discussed at council so that we can all ask whatever question occurs to us and have the answers at the same time and give whatever direction needs to be given to staff or provide whatever information needs to be provided to the community.

In the meantime, hold your fire.

If you have a moment to spare sometime, check on a meeting held at the Town Hall. Any meeting as long as you know the time, date including the year when it was held and ask the Town Web Site for information about it. They will throw pages of stuff at you - right date- wrong year, wrong date-right year, right date-right year and wrong time. The combinations are boggling. If you do not quit in disgust, you might eventually find the speck of gold ..What if it was important to someone trying to do business with Aurora?

Puzzle. Can someone please explain why when you drive along the St. John's Sideroad you see signage about the Marsh but the wooden fencing does not allow you even a glimpse of it? I had hoped to see the geese before facing the dentist.
