Municipality Needs a Sponsorship Policy

We couldn't help but be amused, and a little saddened watching our Meaford councillors discuss waiving fees for the upcoming 'Docs on Ice- Collingwood' event.

 

In a report presented to council by Director of Operations Stephen Vokes, the recommendation from staff was that the municipality support the event that will bring 800 doctors to Collingwood, Thornbury, and Meaford for a hockey tournament.

Sometimes it Just Needs to be Said

There is a very funny scene in the 1994 holiday-season film The Ref which stars Dennis Leary, Judy Davis, and Kevin Spacey.

 

In the scene, the character Gus (Leary), a cat-burglar who is on the run from local authorities, exquisitely demonstrates the need to sometimes simply call a spade a spade.

 

Gus is holding Lloyd and Caroline Chasseur (Spacey & Davis) hostage in their own home. He becomes frustrated with the constant bickering between the married couple. An argument ensues about whether the husband did or did not see a stop sign that he had driven through in an earlier scene, and Gus finally snaps.

 

What follows goes something like this:

 

Gus: You saw the stop sign, didn't you Lloyd?

 

Lloyd: (Stares nervously at the weapon pointed in his face)

 

Gus: You saw the stop sign, didn't you Lloyd?

 

Lloyd: (Whispers) Yes.

 

Gus: Then you, are a liar. Capital “L”, small “i”, small “a”, small “r”, period.
