I’m not planning to sell my produce, but stories like these should make us all a little wary. It’s the bigger picture of bureaucracy hampering change that I think that we as a community need to get involved in changing.
My experience with bureaucratic idiocy was solely renovation-related (we were forced to move our heritage house 5 inches to the left) but from going through a year of it I think I have a fairly intimate understanding of just how stubborn and nonsensical the system and it’s staff can be. When these situations happen to us we need to get the community motivated and involved, and when our neighbours are the ones struggling with the issue we need to get behind them.
So, if you live near these guys give Lantzville a call, and a piece of your mind.
