We’re No 1 … Again (You can’t make this stuff up). For the 2nd year in a row we made MacLean’s No 1 spot and Mayor Banman is disputing their choice
MacLean Magazine has once again given Abbotsford it’s number one spot in its annual list of ‘The 99 stupidest things the government did with your money.’
Last year we won because of George Peary’s Deal to have his friends and neighbours cover the losses of the Calgary Flames farm team for ten years.
This year it is the $115,000 bailout for the Ledgeview Golf Course – Abbotsford’s Sodom on Sumas – where the well-heeled and well-connected of Abbotsford used to congregate and the bar somehow managed to lose money.
Word has it we’ve already got the inside track on next year’s No 1 position since MacLean’s has heard about the City’s plan to give $17.5 Million to the YMCA.
Mayor Bruce Banman, looking like a defiant rake defending his girlfriend’s sullied reputation as a virgin, was featured on the cover on the Abbotsford Times website Thursday disputing MacLean’s choice.
He’s sounding more and more like Dave Loewen every day …
‘We weren’t the stupidest … Vancouver was stupider than we were.’
Pssst Bruce … Vancouver is bigger than Abbotsford.
