NOT yet anyways...lol.. but it will if I have anything to say about it.

So, let me get this straight....and pardon any cynicism, but I'm taking this one a little personally.

City makes big move acquiring Miniature Village.

So, I propose to the city that we hold a two-day festival celebrating Rock'N'Roll, it's place in Oshawa (and it's future), educating a generation of upcoming musicians, providing invaluable networking opportunities, exposure to a worldwide audience, investing in our future... and in doing so, providing many in the community with immeasureable benefits, including keeping these people productive and in a creative outlet (and pardon me for saying so, not lying in the streets stoned and starving) for the measly price of $35,000.....

They turn me down, and instead cut the Cullen Family a cheque for $200,000.00 to buy a bunch of broken down pieces of history....

Well, just watch what I have to say...I'll be heading to City Hall tomorrow and doing some research.  Not nice to go to war before checking your ammo... can't wait to see how much I find...

And in case you missed it the first time... OSHAWA NEEDS TO REINVENT ITSELF... and not in the image of Whitby....
