Re: Watered-down wildlife construction protocol lacks teeth

Jillian McKim: “It would have been nice if any of this was taken into consideration before they dug up and killed all the hibernating animals at 6279 Fernbank Rd. in January 2015. The mass grave that borders the UNF beside their massive aggregate pads was a constant reminder as the sun dried it out all summer. Should the development go ahead as planned, we can expect 3 times more carnage over the winter months of 2016.”

Re: Richmond Bakery sign to be auctioned off

Deb Mallett: “[Your reporter] asked me if I had any thing else to add, I said YES! I told them how great the landlord had been honouring his word through challenges and how we would be creating 40 jobs in Richmond and area, that we were using local contractors and the local banks. In our economy, which has had many challenges, I’m surprised and disappointed they weren’t interested the positives deriving from this project (which I told them) including turning the sign into a positive by donating all proceeds to the Richmond Food Bank. They asked why the food bank, and I responded that being in this business everyone should have the opportunity to have food on the table.”
