Nanaimo News Notes March 24, 2011

Nanaimo North Town Centre: is a mall that has attracted several new merchants in the recent past. The new Fairway Market to be open soon is adding a much need Supermarket to the mall which has lacked one for several years now. Inside stores which have been vacant for sometime are filling up also. If you haven't been by for awhile now, stop in and you will be surprised by the changes.

Local Liberals: simply aren't ready for an election and there former candidate, Jim Stewart is quoted in the Daily as saying it seems ridiculous to force an election at a time when the economy seems to be recovering and spending $300 million on an election seems irresponsible to him.

Train to Run South: the plan for the VIA Dayliner to run south to Victoria in the early morning is still on target for early 2012 according to Graham Bruce of the Island Corridor Foundation. It still depends in part on a commitment from senior government to put up $15 million for infrastructure funding.

Free Stuff: one man's trash is another man's treasure, so don't forget you can get rid of your unwanted stuff in the city wide Reuse Rendezvous running from April 2 - 4. Simply get your tags from city hall marking the stuff as free and put it out on the curb April 2 - 4. Be sure to remove anything not taken the evening of the 4th.

  1. 300 million is a small price to pay to be rid of Ignatieff, Harper, And Layton we will have another minority government and the liberal caucus will probably ask for Ignatieff to step down as he could not get a majority government.
