"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

Apart from being members of the tax-paying public, what exactly do Susan Walmer and Jan Freedman have to do with the "Culture (sic) Centre" (you'll get it right one of these days)?

Susan Walmer  is a person of extraordinary organizing skills.She is responsible for  Phyllis Morris elections along with  part of her slate of candidates.
Jan Freedman is part of the loyal opposition.
The occupying force at Church Street School is interlinked with the pair of them
Except for  St Kitts cabal, they are residents and taxpayers of the  town . That gives them rights and freedoms to pursue their objectives. 
They should not be underestimated.
The  traditional colour of  green used for parks trucks is a no-brainer and a non-issue as far as I am concerned.
Dispute came from the administration.
Not the Council. 
I believe the bylaw prohibiting the Mayor or any Councillor from retaining and have uncontrolled access to outside solicitors is already in place.
It would never have reached the table in the last Council.

So, no particular connection apart from your own tinfoil hat conspiracy-type. Nothing official, then. Gotcha.

"...and a non-issue as far as I am concerned."

But, YOU made green trucks an issue!?!

It would make interesting entertainment to sponsor a series of public debates between "them" and "us."

It is one thing to work diligently as an organizer in the background, another completely to have to appear before a forum of one's peers and explain your philosophy, your objectives and how you came to hold these.

When, in a discussion, the other party continues to question, to poke and to prod, members of the cabal start to backtrack and stumble and stutter, losing their way, as it were.

Not quite as impressive then.

Tim offers good advice periodically. But he is still a back-seat driver, telling us what we already know. He does not offer any practical suggestions that we have not already considered. He points out that the Council has basically accomplished nothing. This is not news. I wish it were. No novices on Evelyn's Blog.

It must be extremely difficult at times to swallow the bile, and out of respect for "freedom of expression" decide to publish much of that with which one doesn't agree.

Censorship is far worse than defamation because it potentially impacts a huge audience, the latter is usually directed at one or a limited few.

"Gotcha" at 6:12 PM is simply a bilious voice in the wind, a faint one at that. Mind you that's not "official."

This is where you are wrong (again). The "traditional" green issue came from the long-since retired former staffer who felt that his legacy was being lost, so he wrote the editors, wrote the council and Ms Buck, always looking for a fight, took up the challenge.

Had he not said anything, no one would have cared and the time spent by staff to write those reports would have been saved to do other more meaningful work.

I am a firm believer that Police cars should be yellow. Can you please take up my cause and get the Region to go to yellow police cars?

Actually, 9:03 PM, that was "Gotcha" as in "I understand" (which you obviously did not).

To avoid misunderstandings in the future the "Gotcha" should be stated as affirmative or not.

According to the British Telegraph, The Queen has hired a dog shrink to try and keep her dogs from tearing apart visiting dogs. Apparently one corgi almost took out the old dog of a grandkid. Aurora needs something like that to deal with those who claim our Park as theirs and seek to deny anyone else use of the place. The two Susans and their followers should not be allowed to dictate the use of that park. If the Queen will discipline her dogs, certainly Aurora could rein in its local hounds.

Stop with the G.D. Park!! They did it, they did it again, they did it again. More than one council has allowed it. No one in authority has challenged it. No one with authority will challenge it because of the s**t storm it would generate for their personal political goals.
