The City is spending more than $570,000 for what the Times & Transcript is reporting are “mostly cosmetic” improvements to the Main Street subway overpass. Councillor Shawn Crossman is quoted as saying he’s concerned about that amount because “it’s not even our property”. He’s right…The subway is entirely owned by CN. The councillor was also confused about how they found more than half a million dollars so quickly for the subway when that can’t seem to dig up enough cash to refurbish the East End Pool. Despite Crossman’s misgivings the project was unanimously voted through at a special council session yesterday.
