There Is No Substitute for Experience.

About a 1.5 years ago I wrote a blog about my garage…or “crapage” I had called it…I don’t know how else to describe this thing aside from a pure evil junk staging point that never ends.

Once again our city is having discussions about fee hikes for services - seems (to me) like a redundant topic.
The issue being...fee hikes for services - water, waste removal etc...
After reading yesterday’s story on cfcn.ca (unable to find the article now?) informing the public of the proposed increases - there were close to 25 comments by readers expressing their concerns with these...
