Close Call at Meaford Hall Should Serve as a Reminder to All to Inspect our Homes and Workplaces For Potential Fire Hazards

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hOver the last decade I have often heard from anti-Meaford Hall folks that the building should have been torn down. The more dramatic type of anti-Meaford Hall folks have gone so far as to suggest that the building should be burned to the ground.

So there must have been a momentary rush of excitement followed by a dramatic sigh after a close call at Meaford Hall last week that could have given those folks their wish.

Why We Don't Need a CAO

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hIf history is any indication, we have just entered the window of time when Meaford's CAO is likely to say goodbye and head off to greener pastures. To be clear, there are no rumours that our CAO is planning to leave, there have been no rumblings, no whispers, I'm just talking about history – and not just in Meaford.

Our current CAO has been with the Municipality for three years now. From the research I've done over the years, municipal CAOs in Ontario seem to stay with a municipality for three to five years before heading off to their next municipality where they will collect a larger pay-cheque than they had been receiving from their previous employer.  Loyalty is not part of the CAO culture.  Longevity is just a myth they have read about.

Making the Most of the Dog Days of Summer

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hThe dog days of summer are here. Warm temperatures, at times working their way to stifling, oppressive temperatures have wrapped their arms around our area, and they've been squeezing tight.

The month of August - my least favourite time of year. Hot, sticky, and often unpredictable, I've long thought that the best thing about August is that it is just a couple of months away from October.
