Another Bonnette/Marshall project gone bad.

Will Bonnette go to HIS "development partners" to get the added expense?

Tell us again Tricky, how we're going to make our money back through that partnership development plan of yours?

I guess we could tell Mold Masters we'll change The Bob Austin Yard name to The Mold Masters Yard and see what that'll get us.

Maybe we could ask the Power Plant for an increase in their council bribe?

Any capital project that the Mayor brainstormed, should have been immediately dismissed. He couldn't even run a bar and council let him continue as the main driving force behind a capital 'partnership plan' involving millions upon millions of taxpayers’ dollars. Shame on Council for going along with this 'partner enriching' scheme.

In the real performance driven world, he'd have a hard time keeping a job. Unfortunately for us taxpayers, in the political world, even at the municipal level, success is measure by how much money your 'partners' made, off the backs of taxpayers.

FYI … Regarding upcoming Source Water Protection Community Meetings
The Lake Simcoe Conservation Authority, and partners, is hosting a
series of community workshops throughout our source protection region
for residents to learn more about source water protection activities and
what they can do to protect their water. The audience focus is those
living/owning land within 100 meters of a municipal wellhead or 200
meters of a municipal surface water intake, however, we are happy to
have any and all attend that are interested in learning more about
source water protection.
Our goal is quite simply public education... to reach out to the
community about this resource - one that is far too often taken for
All sessions are from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
February 13, 2008 Barrie Town Hall, 70 Collier Street
February 19, 2008 Orillia Museum, 30 Peter St. S.

March 19, 2008 Schomberg Library, 77 Main St.
March 26, 2008 Sharon, East Gwillimbury Municipal Office, 19000 Leslie
A flyer is being distributed through a variety of channels, including
our websites, partner websites, through mailings to community centres,
municipal offices and public libraries and advertisements in local
community newspapers. We've also scheduled a mass mailing to several
thousand residents living close to wellheads and intakes.
For more information, please see
Please feel free to spread the word. If you have any questions about
this initiative...
Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.

The power plant people were smart enough to not even bother to try to do business in Milton. Cheaper to dangle million dollar carrots in front of Halton Hills Council, and like sunfish, they bit before the line even set.

Kudos to Halton Hills Councillor Lewis for being the only council member to not give in on the political peer presure

All those years Bonnette has been on the developers campaign finance take, and now he wants us all to believe he's not responsible for the mess this community is currently in.

only a teflon answer though we're hearing & wondering

My teenaged son called me this afternoon to inform me that he'd be home late because he was at a friend's house working on a project. He expressed some concern about how he was going to get home because, as he said,

"He lives out in The Mattamys" ???

I don't know why, but I found that utterly hilarious.
