The President really said that the idea of
financial self-sufficiency had never been conveyed to him ? That is truly
awesome. Does he live under a rock? Did Mayor Dawe never mention that tiny
little expectation of Aurora's taxpayers to him? Does the Mayor also live under
The question was specific. I asked it.Im not sure how long the President has been the President.Or even how long he has lived in Aurora. He is the third president.
Financial self-sufficiency was your expectation. and it was mine.
It is apparently not Mayor Dawe's expectation.
The Mayor Dawe puts culture in the same category as soccer.
It should just be there at taxpayer's expense.
The fact parents pay hundreds of dollars a year for a child to play soccer does not appear to be relevant.
The fact that teachers were withholding services and students were able recently to organize their own art show in Church Street School means everything to the Mayor.
That he is able to enjoy a performance of a world famous pianist without going to the Sony Centre in Toronto and having all that expense, is enough reason to justify the burden on the taxpayer. .
The Mayor is adamant.
Culture in Church Street School is cheap at the price and something to be celebrated.
And so of course is the rest of Council.
Councillor Tompson offered to be a member of the board if they will have him. I think I heard Councillor Humpfryes echo the same thought.
Everyone is very happy with the decision being recommended to Council.
The audience signified their pleasure with sharp and vigorous applause.
The puppet- master didn't have to speak at all.
