Unfortunately, council encourage the Highland neighbours by letting them think that that massive
list of things they did not like about the plan would be considered, A few critical details, even large ones,might have been negotiated but the whole darn thing ? No.
Cllr Mrakas has only to look at what happened with Newmarket.

There was an election intervening here.
You can't blame residents for electing candidates sympathetic to their cause.
You can't blame candidates who believe municipal councils have more authority than they do.
Candidates win support like that all the time.
People who insist on being straightforward don't.
People think Donald Trump is a phenomena. He's not. He is simply tapping into the primitive.
Everybody looks after what they think is their own best interest.
Americans have an intellectual, intensely logical President. Quietly methodical.
Yet supportive voices are relatively muted.
While Donald Trump whips fear into panic..
It's dangerous but he says "I don't care"
He is more terrifying than the terrorists.
President Theodore Rosevelt said. "We have nothing to fear but fear itself"
I wonder how long it might take Trump to notice what's happening north of the border and what a handy target Canada might be .
It's a funny old world.
