I have had a just very interesting day. I never know who is going to be sent my way next. I mentioned in another thread that the paralegal who had trained me had just moved to town to help her family. I consider her one of my mentors, and the strongest influences in my life in the last 20 years. I haven’t seen her in a decade, and she doesn’t know anything about my life here.
Sue has established a reputation in Kitchener for taking on City Hall, and has a good working relationship with the mayor and council there and winning. Although Sue is no longer practicing as a paralegal, she continues to act as a advocate in helping people deal with government. She is particularly good at municipal legislation, and has fought and won at the OMB several times.
She offered to work with us, and help out with the office. She’s also Microsoft Certified, and will be redesigning the site for us.
While chatting, I found out she was one of the paralegals who worked on the Oak Ridges Moraine case, which was won by the residents and the planning commissioner was our very own Janet Babcock. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak_Ridges_Moraine
We met at the office today to discuss Limerick Rd., and what we wanted done with the site. After catching up a bit we parted company. Several hours later she called me and asked me if I could help her get the other side of the “dog story” out. It turns out its her sons dog, where she lived, that killed the other dog. (At this time, Sue had never seen the site, didn’t have internet at home yet, and knew nothing about the dog park story earlier this year.) Here’s today’s Record story. http://www.therecord.com/news/local/article/628287–dog-put-down-after-being-attacked-by-neighbours-dogs
All I have to say at this point is I think that things are about to get a little interesting here on several fronts.
