Time to re-group

October 1, 2011


[Nat] ~ Thank heaven the pool initiative was defeated. There were too many unanswered questions, too many inequities, too many generalizations. And far, far too much invective. But I suspect that the majority who voted against the initiative would also agree that the pool idea is a good one. It would be an asset to […]

Wonderful Idea – but NO

September 17, 2011


[Nathaniel Brown] ~ Dear friends and neighbors, I am writing to you to ask you to vote “no” on the pool. This is not because I don’t want an aquatic centre in Princeton. Much to the contrary, I think it is a wonderful idea, and if a fund drive were to be organized, I would […]

On Our Own

August 22, 2011


Numerous people have written to the Inspector of Municipalities to try to get an inquiry into the seemingly irregular affairs of the Princeton Aquatic Centre Referendum.

Nothing To Be Gained

August 12, 2011


[Anonymous] ~ The overly hasty decision of the pool committee to proceed with the referendum after the RDOS Board’s decision last Thursday exposes the whole process for the political sham that it has been from start to finish.
