Once again, the citizens of Banff have been presented with a fait accompli regarding the future of Bear Street.

At the Dec. 7 council meeting, everybody “jumped on board” the idea of having a skating rink at the Bear Street parking lot.

Unfortunately, from the meeting information I could access online there was no detailed breakdown of the cost for this rink, nor was there any indication that “public feedback” would be sought, although many Bear Street business owners were able to have their say.

It’s no wonder that ordinary citizens get frustrated with governments.
