Need­less Spend­ing

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

Aswe re­ported, Cham­plain and Bishop’s are su­ing ev­ery town that they can find re­spon­si­ble for the ma­jor flood­ing that they suf­fered last fall. The in­de­cency of the ma­noeu­vre is ob­vi­ous. This is a case of one pub­licly funded en­tity try­ing to be paid by other pub­licly funded ones. Que­bec should im­me­di­ately step in and save a cou­ple of mil­lion in lawyer fees right away by com­pen­sat­ing Cham­plain and Bishop’s. The ques­tion is not to have the Supreme Court of Canada de­cide in 2021 who was re­spon­si­ble but to see to it that our money is well spent. Here it is wasted.

It’sof­fi­cial. This year’s theme for Hat­ley’s Canada Day Pa­rade is “Cana­dian Va­ca­tions”. So dec­o­rate your float or your bi­cy­cle and join the pa­rade! Do it for the glam­our – thou­sands of peo­ple line the pa­rade route to watch and cheer – or do it for the thou­sands of dol­lars in prize money to give away to the best and most orig­i­nal floats. Win or lose, it’s al­ways fun to be part of this 103 year-old tra­di­tion which will start, as usual, at 11:00 am on July 1st.

The or­ga­niz­ers of the Canada Day Cel­e­bra­tion in Hat­ley are putting the fin­ish­ing touches on the en­ter­tain­ment sched­ule for the day, in­clud­ing a cou­ple of new ad­di­tions to the line-up, so stay tuned for more de­tails closer to the event date!
