Frustration Over Delays on Bake Shop Bridge Project


These reasons given for the delays to the bridge rebuilding schedule are truly pathetic. They (senior staff and Council) may as well have said the the dog ate the drawings. Three reasons were given: rain delays, need to fabricate a special pipe hanger, and reacting to missing thrust blocks. There is no explanation whether these delays overlapped in any way only that days/weeks were lost because of each.

An outdoor project spanning months should have rain contingencies built into the schedule, this excuse is lame.

British Visitor Hoping to Catch Up With Old Friends


I have tried before to no avail so thought I would try once again to see if I can get some response. In 1981 I was with 22 engineer reg in England posted to Meaford where we were working on the tank range in Meaford.

I got to know some wonderful people who lived on the lane up to the range. The only names I can remember were Doug and I believe Mary who both worked at the camp in the catering department.

Thoughts on Taxation


I see that Mr. Miller wants input to his "round table" on the new tax regulations.

Here is mine, and I hope that he gets some participants at the table who are pensioners, working poor, salaried employees, students, farm and factory and retail and food service workers etc. The vast majority of these people can't benefit from tax loopholes through income sprinkling, converting income to capital gains, or dividends from the family business. etc.
