    Bruce: The “link” works for me.

  3. The sentence itself is a hyperlink – is it not a different color for you? I apo logize for starting a new thread with each reply, but I don’t want to have a wordpress one, and the twitter login makes you start a new thread. This is a neat blog. I didn’t even know about it until there was something on reddit, I think it was.

    At the February 7 TSBP council meeting, by-law 17-2012, (agenda item 10.3, PW.4.3, facilities conduct policy) was defeated. Check against the minutes, but I believe only Councillors Turner and Kirkland voted in favour of the by-law. John Close was absent.

    I understand the vote was 5/2 to defeat this policy. Way to go to the Council members who voted it down!!!!!
