I sent this off to the Vancouver City Council moments ago. The wind really did blow the stuff off of my “reference table” (it’s a stool). The truth is though, I’ve been thinking about dropping them a line for a few days now.
The subject of the correspondence was the current cannabis collective garden moratorium.
I should set up a donate button for a bail fund, huh?
Good day Council.
I hope this Monday has found you well.
I was up here in the loft doing a bit of writing (I’m published, you know) and a big breeze came through the window scattering a stack of my reference paperwork. Yeah, it’s a mess up here. The Missus tells me there’s a bit of weather headed this way. I certainly hope so. I do enjoy the thunder and lightning.
Gathering up the clutter I spied “Staff Report 111-11.” That report, and associated documents, would be relevant to the silly moratorium you folks enacted here a while back.
I say “silly” because, frankly, it isn’t worth the paper it’s written on. Still – in the spirit of having good fun – I was wondering how you all are coming along on that work plan? I’m guessing you’re running a touch behind, eh?
I mean, task one is “identifying stake holders and their issues.” Though I must wonder why a school would be listed as a stake holder. Perhaps you have interest in educating adolescents about cannabis? Hey, if you guys can be silly why can’t I join in the fun?
I have identified myself as a stake holder. I have identified myself as a disabled veteran holding a medicinal cannabis recommendation. I have offered to confer with you on the subject. I have offered to meet with not only each and every one of you, but also your advisor Ted Gathe.
Not a peep.
Therefore, I must conclude that Task 1 of the “Work Plan” hasn’t been accomplished.
If I’m reading the material correctly (and I’ll admit this last read was nothing more than a brief scan) your silly moratorium becomes a pumpkin in about 7 working days. You’d best get cracking!
You guys are a riot, I’m tellin’ ya…. Heh, heh, heh.
