Smaller council, keep wards – yes we can

Smaller council, keep wards – yes we can

Yes we can downsize our cumbersome 16 member Council without changing ward boundaries. The two northern wards could together elect three councillors. Picton and its neighbouring Easterly wards could elect three.  And Wellington with its neighbouring Westerly wards could elect three.

Guardians of the Galaxy is funny-smart

So it took me awhile, but I finally got around to reviewing Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, let’s start with a simple premise. I was not eager to see this. It looked silly or at least weird.  I mean it has a killer raccoon, a bunch of odd characters that look like they were knock-offs [...]

Auxiliary volunteers the heart and soul of PECMH

Auxiliary volunteers the heart and soul of PECMH

Faded shades of pink and vibrant hues of red surround me every day. These colours are synonymous with my friends in the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, who just celebrated their 80th anniversary this week.
