Concerned About Condition of Georgian Trail

Dear Editor,

I had a letter going to you on the condition of the Georgian Trail but in my recent ride on August 13 there was a change on the trail. I will explain as I go along, so here goes.

I rode my scooter to Lora Bay in July, hoping I would not run out of power. From Christie Beach to Lora Bay and to Thornbury is maintained by the Town of Blue Mountains. The difference in maintenance of the trail is like night and day. Blue Mountains side is in excellent condition.

Community Continues to Mull Potential Library Options


In a recent issue of The Independent one of your readers suggested moving the library into Meaford Hall and moving the Hall art into the library, and then turning the library into an arts centre complete with gallery.

On the face of it, this seems to be a great idea. The library would still be central to the town and we would acquire an arts centre which I believe would be a wonderful drawing card for visitors. Furthermore, we wouldn’t need to buy more property. This makes a lot of sense all round, but somehow I suspect there would be snags. For instance, is there enough room in the Hall, given the fact that when there are live performances people need space to mix and mingle during intermission?

Reader: Electric Vehicle Drivers Should Avoid Meaford


The other day my wife and children were returning from a trip so I thought I would try our electric car to see if it was viable to drive long distances. I drove from Woodford to Blue Mountain and gave it a small charge at their free stations at the village. I then went to Barrie and charged it at the free stations at a car dealership. I then drove to the free chargers at the airport.

On the way home I thought to try Highway 10 as it is much shorter distance-wise. I charged at the free super charger at the Caledon library and proceeded to make my way home. There are no quick charge stations between Caledon and Owen Sound on Highway 10, just the 120 volt that most towns are installing at public parking areas.
