I just came back from an all-candidates roundtable hosted by the Mills Corp. We had four tables of people and the candidates (PC, Lib., NDP, Green) rotated so they visited each one. I asked each candidate a question about Enerdu. It was something like this: Was it fair for the province to deprive the town of any authority or say in an industrial project smack in the middle of the town? Each of the candidates agreed it was unfair and we (townsfolk and Council) should have been consulted.
This gives me some hope that maybe we can successfully agitate for some design control after the election next week. It is too late to stop the Enerdu expansion but towns people would not be as offended if we could mitigate some of its worse features as identified in the heritage impact study. Something to think about and for Council to talk about.
