I guess after finding out how easy it is to get this city council to dance to their tune, the group who cajoled city council into banning bottled water in civic facilities are now threatening to remove the coveted title of 'Blue Community' since the city did not extend the ban on bottled water sales completely.
A spokesman for the Council of Canadians claims they did not understand the motion which city council passed last June (probably neither did council), claiming they thought the ban would extend to outside event organizers such as the Dragon Boat Festival and anyone else renting the city facilities.
You may recall the last few times this issue was visited by this council it was akin to watching another episode of the Keystone Kops Visit City Council as everyone seemed confused by the entire issue. If I remember rightly Councilor Greves referred to the whole thing as looking like something a couple of guys came up with in the bar one night.
The Blue Community status, means absolutely nothing, and I doubt if it were not for the considerable pressure applied by CUPE this nonsense would have been dismissed with little discussion whatever.
