Hey Santa! Here's My Wish List

MeBWmediaDear Santa,

 

I know it is early but since you will be in Meaford on Saturday to kick off the annual Christmas Window Unveiling event, I thought I would prepare a wish list for you so that you could take it with you when you leave.

 

It was really hard to narrow down my list this year. I don't want to seem greedy, and really I don't want much this year, but some of what I am hoping to get will take a lot of work, so you might find the extra time helpful.

Timing is Everything

MeBWmediaMeaford voters have elected a new council that features four new members, but it would seem that some things just aren't going to change in the near future.

 

Throughout the campaign many voters expressed frustration about the number of lawsuits that the municipality is engaged in.

 

Well, we can add one more lawsuit to the mix.
