COUNTY TREE CUTTING COMMITTEE


If you thought the County was going to help, you better think again.

Not once did anyone object to the current bylaw the County has in place -well except the Landowners, but that was only because it was the first time they had heard of the bylaw, despite it being in place for more than 10 years.

What people objected to was the County NOT enforcing their existing bylaw. So what happens? Do they start enforcing it, against organizations like Highlands with 9 proven contraventions?

Well no, they hire lawyers and staff to draft up a NEW bylaw. What will this new bylaw do? Well, it will exempt agricultural uses, something the current bylaw does NOT do, which will permit Highlands to do whatever the hell they want.

When challenged on this, the Chair of the Committee, John Oosterhof said, and I quote: "we can't do what we can't do".
Hm, sounds like a new motto for Melancthon Council.
And this is an observation only. Malicious Michael Daniher has not missed a single meeting in a dogs age, yet Highlands was notably absent last night. I would hate to think they already know the outcome of the County's decision.
Just thinking out loud.....
