💻 Today, at 5 p.m. is the Committee of the Whole meeting for our township. People are presenting some final arguments, mostly against the proposed gun range. We'll check in on Zoom. The Planner recommends a deferral, as they await another report. What is interesting is that the a gun range falls under federal laws (RCMP) for safety requirements. It is the provincial Ontario Firearms Officer who gives the go ahead to the gun range if the local municipality says they meet local bylaws. The one proposed doesn't have the zoning for it. This is what the meeting is about.
🍌 I am really happy for our local food bank. It's called The Table. They do good work, teaching, and having community meals. Their online auction fundraiser was excellent! I checked in at 7:30 in the morning. Later, by its close, they were up a tad more. We donate monthly, which provides some stability.
🌬Yesterday was a tad chilly (4 C.). I did not spend a lot of time outside. Alberta was -23 C. on Monday – I won't complain. I've few photos. Thankfully, the deer are happy to be on camera. ⛈Rain or 🌨snow today. It could go either way. Either way, summer/4 season tires don't work well under 7 C., our snow tires are on!
🦌Down at the deer scrape, I managed to catch sight of the doe inspecting it. The bucks have been here leaving their mark.
They clearly didn't like the noise of the wind. They cannot listen for predators.
