True or False? Letter to Editor, NS News

Subject: True and False
   Over the past couple of weeks City Council discussions regarding the Onni development at 13th & Lonsdale have played out like a TV soap opera —  Will He?  Won’t He?  Did They?  Didn’t They? Truth or Lies?  WOW !  For those of us following the drama it’s been an emotional rollercoaster.
    For now, it’s over.  Onni has withdrawn all its plans for this site.  While I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of this developer, I’m equally sure that the reasons they have cancelled have  nothing to do with the story they are now spreading via newspapers, TV and radio.  It probably has more to do with that vastly important factor to all big business — The Bottom Line.
    But today, let’s all take a deep breath and let the lessons from the past weeks sink in.  For me, two old sayings have been truly tested:-
         HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY ——– True, beyond a doubt.
         YOU CAN’T FIGHT CITY HALL  ——- False, at least this time.
