I believe we are officially in decade #2 of planning this project, while users of Crystal have been suffering from heart burn thinking their pool (which they love) would get replaced at any minute.

Last night on the news was an article about how much the city of Halifax is going to have to cut back on necessities. I said to my husband, oh well, at least have lettuce seedlings.

It is crazy. Every other City is being forced to cut back on expenditures given the drop in revenue yet Victoria keeps finding ways of spending more money. Yesterday council voted to take $500K from "contingency funds" to to drive more 'resiliency' projects to their friends and supporters, $30K to fund seedling delivery to people who don't have gardens and have staff get projects 'shovel ready' that they just finished deferring last month because they don't have money.

 

Must be nice to not understand economics.

My understanding is there is a huge federal pipeline of cash coming, and it will be directed towards shovel-ready projects. Municipalities all across the country are trying to fast-track various initiatives in order for their funding applications to qualify.

You mean like during the last recession when billions were set aside for infrastructure projects that never materialized.

 

Not that I expect the Feds to care about money or make good decisions but construction is one industry that hasn't been as severely impacted over the past few months as many others.

With no new cases of COVID-19 on Vancouver Island in a month, and with businesses and amenities reopening, so too are municipalities beginning to reopen recreation centres.

The District of Oak Bay’s municipal hall remains closed, likely for June, says the Mayor Kevin Murdoch. However, on Monday Oak Bay released a series of dates for the reopening of daycare and recreation centres since they closed in mid-March.

It starts with the June 15 opening of the Paddington Station Day Care in the Neighbourhood Learning Centre, which is part of the new Oak Bay High building.
