"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

Let Grace decide.
The Council can still be a nasty scene. too many residuals and heaven knows what is coming out of the underbrush.

Of course Grace will decide. No pressure intended ,   No offence either by not mentioning others. 

When Grace  resigned I felt the community was short-changed, It wasn't meant to be that way.

The community was short-changed. It also spoke volumes with the state of council and the administration.

This is going to be a very busy week what with picking provincial candidates, a Council and an event no one seems aware of- but Christopher has a grin or two for those who can spare the time.

Christopher usually doesn't miss much but when he is talking about possible structural damage to Hillary, he should consider those weird ' frost quakes ' that blew through town during the ice storm and sounded like gun shots. Apparently they can cause damage to foundations too.

Thank you 19:39 I had not considered the frost quakes, but having seen the snow collected in front of Hillary House and having to remove it to make for a safe entrance I would be surprised that a quick thaw will not be kind to this building, nor the other 2 properties being proposed in the Heritage Disneyland fiasco.

The Redman House next door is without utilities and did not enjoy the benefit of a home inspector that Horton Place did.

From the cost benefit study we paid for I read Horton Place has several issues that need addressing if it wants to be compliant with its designation under the Ontario Heritage Act.
Why would it not be expected for any of the 3 home owners to be compliant before entertaining any notion to acquire them.

For all 3 buildings to be inside the boundaries of the North East Conservation District it speaks volumes of how little that district is doing to conserve those 3 properties.
