|negative protests, |
with much signage
Many have been harmed by the powerfully negative protests, with much signage, that have stopped people from buying or opening a business in the picturesque town. We cottaged there from 1960 to 2006, when we bought out my brother's share of mom and dad's house. We lived there full-time from 2006 => 2010.
A delightful little summer town, supplemented by the winter snowmobile crowds, who pop into the pub for lunch. You can't get gas on the trail, though. They patrol the roads and sidewalks.
It's dead in the shoulder seasons.
