Hi Marty, I just want to pass on my heartiest congratulations to all those"Parkers" who have successfully fought the sexxodium. There is nothing like people power.
I know there were a lot of individuals involved but to me from afar,the most prominent were Ross Morley and Normand Simard with the willing support and cooperation from you and your blog and Bruce Hollingdrake and his blog. Edmund Burke the British Statesman said " The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing" .
Well done good men/women.
Now it is time for the borough council to follow-up that success and ensure that such a situation never occurs again. Some basic issues which need to be resolved ,in my mind anyway are:
(1) is this a shortcoming of amalgamation?
(2) Who is responsible for legislating zoning by-laws?
(3) who is responsible for the issuance of business permits,the borough or the Cite de Longueuil?
(4) If the responsible entity is Longueuil what are the lines of communications between the Borough and it's overseer, the City ?
Just some musings but to me they are valid questions which need to be addressed and resolved. JMcC
Thanks John McC.
