Commissioner and councillor
do not go hand in hand
Usually we see politicians at the provincial or federal level looking out for themselves but guess what? We have it happening here in Bible Hill.
What may have gone unnoticed to some is we have an elected representative who is collecting two salaries.
Christine Blair, was acclaimed in District 1 in the Colchester County municipal election. She is also a Bible Hill commissioner.
I find is strange that as the past-chairwomen of the commission she is also now a county councillor and I am paying her twice with my tax money!
It is time for Ms. Blair to answer to the residents of Bible Hill. Who does she stand with? Bible Hill or the county?
She should step down from village commission to allow another voice in the political process.
If not, why doesn't she also run for MLA, then MP?
Thanks to the person
who turned in Ipod
I would like to let everyone know there are definitely some honest people left out there.
On Monday, I left my brand new Ipod at the gym in one of the treadmills.
After two days of searching my house I finally realized where I had left it. I was positive I would never see it again.
I called the gym and sure enough, someone was kind enough to turn it in. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to that person. I hope you read this. I greatly appreciate it.
Also, congratulations to the food bank and the people of Truro and area. What an awesome job. More than 34,000 lbs of food donated. Wow.
Cobequid Pass closure due to storm raises many questions
The recent traffic disaster on the Cobequid Pass raises many questions as hundreds of people were trapped on the highway for more than 12 hours.
Does the EMO and the Department of Transportation not have access to an emergency radio frequency by which they could provide the stranded motorists with the latest progress reports and survival information? It would save a few thousand cellphone calls to busy government sources.
Are well-equipped ATVs and snowmobiles available to carry emergency food, water, blankets, etc. to stranded motorists and to provide medical services on site or evacuate when necessary?
I hope so.
This situation can and will happen again and again. Next time the weather may be much colder and people may perish. Gas tanks and patience may run out.
The Cobequid Pass seems to have been closed more often and for longer periods than the old 104 through the Wentworth Valley.
The new 104 is a good road in the wrong place.
