It seems to me that the city is not in good hands and hasn't been for many years.
Why did it take the crisis brought on by the May 15 ruling about the safety of the Colliery Dam to get something done? Why weren't upgrades to the dam done 10 or fifteen years ago? Why wasn't the Colliery Dam upgraded at the same time as Westwood Lake?
Is it because the dam is not in the north end? You can bet your boots that if the dam was in the Neck Point area that it would have been kept up to date yearly and we wouldn't be losing this gem.
