"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

Post Script

When the Region was created , authority to approve  municipal debt was transferred to that body.

But we seldom need approval for debt.

The money we  strong-arm from developers when they apply for building permits ( no tickee no permit) allows major projects to be built with cash .

No Holds Barred.

Every wish shall be granted.

The joint facility we are building for parks and works has a green roof . Can't get anything much more expensive than that.

It's being built to Gold Standard Energy.

It has an extra floor on it for possible use in the future.  And don't forget the treatment facility for melting snow. That's another cool million.

 We really don't know what all those  other extras cost.

But heigh ho,  what's a million ?

 Why should t  we  not  have the best.? We have all that hydro reserve money crying out to be spent.

The Water Reserve probably did have to have unanimous approval before it could be borrowed.
