Merchants suffer during Construction

Many of our town businesses are hurting during construction work that is taking place. I know that we like to avoid the construction zones but if you are looking to purchase something, I encourage everyone to support these merchants in any way possible, especially during the construction period. They ARE open for business and you can get to them. When business is down at these establishments, the employees are also affected as well with reduced hours of employment and subsequently they lose wages that they rely on. Please do what you can and

Laurier Parkway (update)

The long awaited Laurier Parkway is finally taking shape. If you travel along Disputed, or Huron Line you will see the road base in place and the street lights installed. Mine you the lights should have been LED and not high pressure sodium. The asphalting should begin in a week or so which will add a whole different dimension to many of our travel routes in the future.

Candidate's Meeting 2010

The Candidate's Meeting held few surprises this year. The attendance was down indicating that people are generally satisfied with what is going on. It was a good opportunity for all the candidates to meet each other. A record number of candidates are running and all were present. I will say this, I am very impressed with the candidates this time. We have a lot of good people trying for the first time to move into Municipal politics and I wish them all well.

Question and answer sessions held no contentious issues. One of the main concerns came from small business and how can we as a municipality help out our small business especially through these economic time.

What did you think of the Meeting?

Trinity St. finally opens in LaSalle

Trinity Street has finally opened. This is a roadway that is behind the Price Chopper Grocery Store on Delmar St. If you are looking for a alternative route along Malden Road around the construction, you can turn East on Suzanne St. and at the first intersection turn left, go over the bridge and continue on to Ellis St. and you will come to Normandy St. Continue straight on Ellis and it will go behind the Zehrs Grocery Store. Ellis becomes Trinity and you continue to Wyoming St. Turn right and it will take you by Sandwich West Public School and from there you can get to Todd Lane.

You can also access all the stores in all the Malden Road plazas a lot easier if you use this route. All the way to the Tim Hortons!!!!!
