4th reading | 4 dollars | 4 the food bank

I guess like Scrooge (see previous post), I had a an epiphany overnight (minus the scary spirits). And it struck me that rather than get embroiled in yet another us vs them council meeting, we should meet half way (or in this case, just on the street outside city hall) to collectively do some good.  Afterall as Dickens himself penned this plea.“At this festive season of the year, … it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Poor and Destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time.  Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir.”

Since on Monday morning (December 20th) our community will gather once again to address the rezoning and OCP amendments for the Smart Centre Development and while this has been a controversial and divisive debate for many, at this time of year there is an opportunity to bring the community together in a positive and purposeful way.

So I invite those of you who will attend the special meeting to keep a moment (and maybe a toonie or two) to remember those in need at this time of year. We’ll be there on Monday morning from 9am on to collect your contributions.
