What nonsense small minds can conjure! We seem to have become a culture of folks who see the failures, the challenges, the difficulties, the broken bits..., but instead of stepping forward to assist, some of us can only fling invective and muck. How very sad.
On the other hand, a BIG THANK YOU to the folks who step forward to take on difficult tasks, give their time, laugh at foolishness, keep trying, look for answers, endorse hope, use their imagination, and weather the storms. Let's support and encourage them!

the halls have been addicted to gaming grants and i tried in my time as vice president to end them in whaletown with universal opposition from the rest of the board and members of the whaletown association.
the community has no problem taking gaming money from the province when the broken lives that are created by them are far away. gaming grants are disfuntional and unsustainable.
Good for You!

Good for you, Dianne. Your comment is well-taken. Those who criticize are seldom the ones who actually volunteer or participate. Cheap shots are much easier!
