A referendum should have been held for water meters

I am wondering if I am the only person around that thinks holding a referendum on whether or not we should have chickens in our backyards as apposed to having a referendum on whether or not we should go to installing water meters is ridiculous.

I attended the public meetings, stood up and asked council to take it to a referendum, and as far as I am concerned my voice was not heard.

How is it that chickens are more important than meters?

On the plus side, I really would like to suggest the bylaw enforcement officer start at the old J.H. Boyd site for the unsightly premises.

As I walk up there I am disgusted at how that property looks.

If I lived on McDonald road I would be quite concerned with the field and the very good possibility of a fire.

Town hall would be hearing from me every day until something was done, as this is more than an unsightly premise, this is a fire and safety issue.
