Bring them home.

We need to bring Mark, and Tish, home. SOON. Help Kera find leads on a level-entry, ground level apartment, with a good sized bathroom, friendly neighbours, easy-clean floors, in-suite laundry, and preferably all utilities included (including internet)…. for somewhere in the region of $900/m (max shelter allowance on disability that we can ascertain at this point). Could be anywhere between Black Creek and Nanaimo or on the Sunshine Coast, maybe lower mainland (tho we realize that’s highly improbable).

Hudson Trunk Sewer Line Construction Complete

Opportunities for residential growth, reduced pressure on existing infrastructure, rehabilitated drainage ditches and a new, widened shoulder for pedestrians are all positive results of the Hudson Trunk sewer line construction project, completed this week.

Construction on the project started in January and was completed with paving along Idiens Way and Parry Place last week.
