HIV/AIDS clinic forced to do Impact Study

Only in Surrey you say, Pity

Surrey City council has lost it this time, they do regularly, though this is just downright ludicrous.

Officials want facility to do a community impact study before moving two doors away, reports the Surrey News Leader.

"A centre for treating HIV/AIDS has hit a major roadblock in its attempt to move to a newer building two doors down from its current location in Whalley. James Bennett wants to relocate the centre to 10693 135A St., but has been told by the city he'll need to complete a "community impact study" before doing so." see the rest at the Surrey New Leader or here.

Phftht! the stupidity of some politicians! Watts, Priddy, and Bose being the exceptions this time...

Dougie McCallum, by th' way, is rumored to be seeking a federal nomination as a Liberal candidate next election -- in Port Kells! And while this would get him nicely out of MY hair, it would worry a lot of Port Kells people to death. 'Cause, considering who represents Port Kells now, he's almost a shoo-in...

Living with Dougie must be tough.
