I too will miss the loss of Weston’s last supermarket. Greenland Farms may have had an odour – show me a fish store that doesn’t smell- but it served the community well for many years providing a large selection of produce along with amazing foods from a variety of ethnic sources.
Sadly, we have a council, mayor and councillor bent on austerity; unwilling to do anything to mitigate the effects of uncontrolled development on our community.
No doubt our councillor will reassure us that the new building will have retail and food stores on the ground floor but the truth is that the community has lost yet another vital asset and the alleged replacement is many years away.
Surely Ms Nunziata must concede some measure of responsibility for Weston’s decline over the past decades of her incumbency? Her voting record seems to reflect a service to the development industry rather than to her actual constituents.
As former prime minister and reformed secular saint, Brian Mulroney famously observed, ‘You dance with the ones that brung you’.
And the music plays on.
