Not enough water to go around

I couldn’t agree more with the letter writer who questioned the sanity of the city’s decision to have a waterslide downtown.

I couldn’t agree more with the letter writer who questioned the sanity of the city’s decision to have a waterslide downtown.

The catchment pond in our development nurtured a whole colony of tadpoles and frogs in April and May last year. This year there’s not much croaking at all and the pond is virtually empty.

The city’s idea is ‘bread and circuses’ and a ridiculous waste of water.
