Is Beauty In The Eyes Of The Beholders?

January 25, 2016

Oliver Mayor & Councilors (sent Jan 25 2016)

In support of our Prime Minister, his Cabinet and all those legions of Canadians who voted Liberal based largely on Mr. Justin Trudeau’s commitment to legalize Marijuana, we intent to commission a local and acknowledged artist to replicate two 8×8 foot exact images of a marijuana leaf on both the north and south sides of the building currently home to the Sunshine Café.

Please advise by return e-mail, which Municipal Law(s) and or By-law(s) you deem we would contravene with our proposed two professionally painted identical marijuana leaf murals.

We ask in light of the recent misinformation and no information found on the town’s website and/or the cub-reporter/councilor’s blog regarding the recent trials and tribulations regarding the commercial building and their mural (now whitewashed) across from the Elks on Bank Ave.

Alternatively if no objections may we have your support in this proposed beautification of our downtown?

    No response yet? Neither from council nor cub reporter? When can we expect to see the signs, and find out who’s the artist?

    I like the way Oliver Ironical rhymes with Oliver Chronicle. I take it you’re hewing to the “humorously sarcastic or mocking” definition of irony, more than the “difference or incongruity between what is expected and what actually is” one?

    It’s been a year since the last post. Can we assume this parrot is dead and not simply pining?-)
