With bus lanes and bikes lanes 100% over budget - and apparently unchangeable priorities - taxpayers can't afford any upgrades to Topaz Park. As I said in another thread, things will have to come off the table.

Especially when the only two choices are spend a lot and spend a lot plus some.

 

This is our typical City council. No doubt someone is going to point out that having a Frisbee golf course in the middle of a park and walkway is asking for an injury so then council will just say "so option one is answer then".

Exactly. There's never a "None of the above" option when it comes to the CoV spending my money.

seems an odd way to describe it all.  not sure it's intended to be "spiritual" or an occasion for reflection.  it's religious in nature.

it is. but the article just seemed to almost bend over backwards to avoid telling us it’s put on by a Christian church.

probably none.

but I suspect if a Muslim event was featured by an article on the topic the religion would be more prominent in the article.

Yes, because a Muslim event would not be part of the current assumed Christian paradigm that underlies our society.

Ideally, it should be. Not sure that's always the case though.
