As Victoria collapses from the ideology of it’s city council it becomes less appealing for any other parts of the CRD to want to join them.

As we had theorized, the writing on amalgamation is on the wall and Haynes tried to pull the plug before the Victoria/Saanich conversation could get started. The big question on everyone’s mind is where the province will start housing the Topaz and Pandora tent city groups, and whether the CoV’s actions will lead to impacts on neighbouring municipalities.

Another question is, will the UBCM go along with an amalgamation agenda?

I am just wondering.  What does Amalgamation have to offer Langford?



The City of Victoria came in at 30th place, according to the report, behind Vancouver in 27th place.

Probably nothing if it's entire region-wide amalgamation. But a Langford-Colwood-Metchosin-(half of) View Royal, with Langford in the driver's seat is probably attractive to them.

Region-wide amalgamation makes little sense. I believe a reduction from 13 fiefdoms to 3 or 4 still has merit.

jack knox is pretty funny today.






In the Before Times, our calendar looked like this: Four months of rain, TC 10K, Victoria Day Parade, Swiftsure, tourist season, Peninsula strawberries, Jazzfest, no school, Inner Harbour Canada Day celebration/Fête du Régurgitation, Symphony Splash, Saanich fair, back to school, Peninsula corn, Rifflandia, raking leaves in the rain, Christmas.


Tomorrow, for example, we would normally trundle out into the 15 C weather (or, as we Islanders like to call it, “a scorcher”) and line Douglas Street for the first seven or eight hours of the parade. It’s one of those things true Victorians traditionally do, just like thanking bus drivers or stealing umbrellas.
