Joe Couture has a good column in today’s L-P on the City vs. Province scrap over mosquitoes, money and West Nile disease. Snip:
To most people, it’s really irrelevant who pays to have the mosquitoes that could plague the province’s cities killed off. Citizens just want it done. And one way or the other, it’s their tax dollars paying for it. It’s unacceptable, especially in a year when the science shows mosquitoes are likely to be even more prolific than usual, that the city is only spending 60 per cent of what has been its normal amount on mosquito control. Even when extra members are available, the crew will only be about half the size it was last year.
Full thing here. Bzzz.
