Smart Meter Installation
“Meter exchanges in your community will commence in January 2012 and are scheduled to be completed by the end of May 2012,” Olynyk’s letter read. “BC Hydro customers in your community will receive a letter a few weeks prior to their meter upgrade. The letter will notify customers when their meters will [...]
I look forward to working with returning councillors Tom Duncan and Joe Thorne as well as the three new councillors, Michelle Bell, Michelle Staples and Martin Barker. I think the next three years will see a lot of changes.
Good bye to Jesse Winfrey, Ray Cadorette and Paul Fletcher, all of whom worked very hard [...]
Today is the last day all candidates can be out on the streets campaigning. I expect to spend a couple of hours downtown.
I support Phil Kent for Mayor. I believe he is the one with the real vision for Duncan. He understands the process. He is thoughtful and respectful. He is inclusive.
I am looking forward to tomorrow afternoon when we go to Sunridge Assisted Living to do pretty much what we did yesterday. It is wonderful to talk to people who have actually thought about issues, ask intelligent questions and best of all feed you tea and cookies.
We got to meet a large group of intelligent, very interested and engaged residents of Wedgewood house yesterday. They served light refreshments while we sat at tables talking to each other. It was delightful and I even met a couple of old friends.

Thank you to the Labour Council for their endorsement. They are right, municipalities do matter and local government impacts the lives of everyone more directly than any other level.
I spent two hours yesterday up in Centennial Heights, door knocking and dropping off fliers. People are very generous with their time and ideas.
I am a supporter of Public Health Care. I am opposed to privatization of health care. This is what I agreed to do:
Public Health Care Pledge
I think it is a tragedy that if you have to go into long term care, it is like a lottery. Go to one facility and everything [...]

I have not heard of another one. Rumour has it that the Newsleader will not [...]
