Well, today, on good authority, I heard the following 'rumours'...
Rumour #1: Municipality is suing a certain former consultant (and his firm) turned interim CAO for "Breach of confidentiality", who in turn is counter suing us, for who knows what? "Defamation of character"?
Comment #1: This should keep our municipal lawyers pretty busy, on our dime, now shouldn't it? They sure know how to spend and tax, now don't they? But to earn a buck, create wealth, jobs and opportunity, they know nothing!
Rumour #2: Fire Departments have been instructed (ordered) 'NOT' to speak with the Ratepayers Association.
Comment #2: And the 'hammer' comes down.
Rumour #3: Mayor and council will 'NOT' run again in the next municipal election, as they feel they will have fixed all our problems by next year, and therefore their job will be done.
Comment #3: Nothing here about them 'possibly' thinking they wouldn't stand a chance in hell of getting back in again, hey?
This makes me think about the surgeon being asked "how did the operation go"? Fine, the operation was a success... but the patient died.
Rumour #4: Municipality is advertising with out of town newspapers encouraging people to attend a job fair next month in Pincher Creek that could very well entice mine workers in B.C. to work up north instead, being flown in and out of Pincher Creek airport.
Comment #4: Well this should make the guys over at TECK, who just donated $100,000 to our local golf course and untold amounts to numerous organizations throughout the Pass over the years, happy! Now shouldn't it?
NOTE: Now, like the Mayor is fond of saying, "we must remember to take all of this with a 'grain of salt'"... or something to that affect.
There are two ways to slide easily through life; to believe everything or to doubt everything. Both ways save us from thinking.
