Restructuring Revisited

Sally Mole was fired due to restructuring but it seems there's been no reduction in staff levels......Staff that were previously employed at Parks and Rec have been promoted to positions with new names and new staff are being hired.So was it "restructuring" or "constructive dismissal " ??

This seasonal full-time position starts in March and ends in December of each year, is based on a 37.5 hour work week, and is subject to the term of the collective agreement of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 118. The salary for this position is $18.09 per hour.  
How To Apply
The deadline for application is 4:00pm on March 28, 2013.

Who needs zoning or a business license ?

from the ad: "What makes The Shore unit unique is that it was not built as a rental unit. It was and still is used as a second home to the owners. Therefore guests can expect to stay in a well maintained and cared for home with top of the line accessories to complete your stay."

District Sawmill Questions

Many questions remain to be answered about the "District Sawmill " it owned by the District or a District employee ? Does the taxpayer pay to maintain the District Sawmill ? Does Management use the District Sawmill for private projects ? Does the District's Worksafe and liability insurance cover the use of the mill on weekends for private projects ?? Who on staff gets wood cut at the District Sawmill ? This has been going on for a long time now....Why do we even have a District Sawmill ?

Fourth and Campbell Project_ Updated

Many readers from away were asking for photos of the 4th and Campbell project. Here are some.....a huge project........

Many people have been asking about the hydro and telephone lines in these photos.....most say they are eyesores and why aren't they being put underground while everything is dug up ?? I confess that I had assumed that they would be going underground and will try to get some more information.......
