It will happen.
A couple years back a city counsellor bought computers for a local volunteer group in Prince George because the RadioShack there was obviously cheaper than the RadioShack here. My ears had the misfortune of hearing the owner's response when she tried to bring them into his store and demand warranty service.
Beware of these promises.
We read how we're getting a flagship Subway in our paper. Now they're negotiating for a tiny rathole in an existing building. Someone finally bought the Zoo and we were all ready to cheer the bulldozers. Aw gee, zoning, restrictions, etc. They're going to remodel the existing crackerjack box that isn't worth the price of the gas to make a Molotov.
Six months ago. NOTHING is happening.
The new mine was going to make it's head office here, local people got preference in hiring. So they sold to another mining outfit. The head office is gonna be on Fort St. John. The subdivision got bought in one parcel - now you buy a company house, can't build your own.
The only new thing in this dump is the 3 four-plexes built for the mine management to rent. That completely blocks the view from our place. No shit, we used to see the park, the beach, the lake and marina and old Church. Now we see vinyl and shingles and the very top of the mountain.
We'd move but the mine is coming. Everyone wants $300,000 for the house they couldn't unload last year for $89,000
