Much space has been wasted on Marni Fedeyco's grand idea of an inclusivity statement.
I have a better project for her to keep her busy and that is to prevail upon the roads department to make sure that the manhole covers on newly paved roads are flush with the surface and not to be placed where cars have to run over them.
The prize goes to Fireside where two of them are at least six-inches too high.
As far as to welcome everybody I draw the line. I am not enthused about welcoming the Hells Angels setting up an office here, nor white supremacy groups making Cochrane their headquarters.
I also do not appreciate rainbow flags being raised to celebrate the minority of five per cent of Canadians.
We did have the Welcome Wagon and the rest is up to you. Be friendly and cheerful and you will feel welcome even without a statement of inclusivity
