Beef to management of an apartment complex in central Nanaimo. There are two large pythons here and tenants were told in the past that they were gone but one came into our apartment.

BOUQUET to Mike G. at Mike Gogo Cedar Products who turned around his vehicle when he had just closed and was leaving to happily sell me some much-needed lumber.

BEEF Couldn’t city council see beyond their collective noses? Didn’t they realize that with the pitching of the first tent at tent city, the numbers would mushroom? The squatters have a good deal – oceanfront, no rent, free medical, all they need at the mall at no charge.

BOUQUET To the person who found my lost keys and turned them in to the staff at the Harbourfront Library front checkout for safe keeping until I retraced my steps several days later to locate them. A reminder that small acts of kindness can make a tremendous difference in the lives of others. Thank you.

BEEF To the gas station. They freeze the dollar amount the buyer authorizes but still withdraw the amount used. I requested $100 of gas and they froze $100 and withdrew another $100. After five days, the frozen amount has not been released. The manager has never bothered to return my call.

BOUQUET Thank you to all involved in the beautiful trails and parks at Linley Valley. This is a gem within our city and cherished by many. My kids love all the art on the posts too.

BEEF To the beefer beefing about those who are stereotyping, overgeneralizing and making assumptions about Discontent City. Please feel free to house them in your own backyard or neighbourhood, then you can see what the neighbouring neighbourhood is experiencing.

BOUQUET Thank you to Brad at City of Nanaimo waterworks for an excellent job done on Bayshore Drive. The city needs more people like you.

BEEF To the man with the black truck coming out of the north-end mall parking lot. You seem to have a problem with your middle fingers. Not very nice to show your middle fingers to other drivers.

BOUQUET To the nurse who made me feel cared for. He genuinely enjoyed his job helping people and made me feel safe and cared about. Beef to the nurse who tried to guilt-trip me.

BEEF To the driving beefer. When two lanes go to one, it’s a zipper. Both lanes go to that point and alternate. Check it out with a driving instructor.

BOUQUET To all the wonderful fellow movie watchers who have the strength to carry out their empty pop and popcorn containers to the waiting garbage pails.

BEEF To the disruptive transient elements and their behavour downtown invading the city from elsewhere. The permanent taxpaying and hardworking citizens of Nanaimo have contributed and made plans to revitalize; and to make this a decent place to develop, work, and live. What a contrasting example you have brought.

BOUQUET To Nanaimo Fire Rescue crews for their dedicated work while dealing with many challenges.

BEEF There are many dogs barking in the early morning along Staffordshire Crescent and Cosgrove Crescent.

BOUQUET To all organizers, sponsors and participants in this year’s dragon boat festival. What a great event for our city.

BEEF To management of an apartment complex in central Nanaimo. There are two large pythons here and tenants were told in the past that they were gone but one came into our apartment. Police were called to remove it.

BOUQUET To voters who rejected the event centre. Now vote to get rid of the five councillors who tried to force it down our throats.

BEEF Thanks, tent city, for your gifts of the three used needles on our beautiful lawn along the ocean path.

BOUQUET To Les at NRGH heart health for his compassionate treatment of his patients and his sense of humour.

BEEF To Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, which made my mom wait four and a half hours to see a doctor. We left after three and a half hours. My mom has dementia; what is wrong with you people?

BOUQUET Big O Tire on Albert as well as Auto Check on Bowen and Toplite on Cliff Street, all their customer service skills are top-notch.
