Our View

About-face

While we respect an individual’s right to change their mind, it did raise eyebrows when a staunch opponent to the Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir (SR1) opted to make an about-face and sell his property to the province .

Future fail

For those who attended the Jan. 21 City of Airdrie council meeting, the parade of speakers in support of a family seeking redistricting on their property seemed endless.

Disrespect

We were surprised when councillors attempted to skip a report from administration Jan. 22 .

It stinks

If you were out and about Jan. 10, your nose was likely overwhelmed by the offensive odour that permeated through parts of the city. It was unpleasant and very noticeable. We can understand why residents near the Thorlakson Nature’s Call Inc.

Concerning changes

While we understand the proposed changes to the Public Notification Bylaw could save the City money, we have concerns. Our main objection centres on the issue of transparency – the platform many councillors ran on.

We’re a bit disappointed to see two Rocky View County councillors participate in a vote on an application where potential bias is being questioned.

Judging from last week’s survey results – 80 per cent of respondents said 2018 was a bad year – we could all use a little hope and positivity in our lives, this year.

According to many, 2018 was one heck of a bad year. In the United States, mass shootings seemed to be a daily occurrence. Perhaps the most publicized was the Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
