Because of his status in his national team, and his world status through that. And everyone has got a little bit carried away with the short term.“The long term is that he’s come here and he’s just turned 21 and to see him play like he did today, and there’s a lot more to come.“It’s not the end story. You can see his balance and awareness and you can see how he can play.“And there’s improvement to come as with all the young players, but delighted for him because he will feel good about that. And he should do because he was a big part of us winning that game.” last_img read more

Council puts kibosh on allowing backyard hens

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Fort St. John City Council voted in favour of not reopening the issue of allowing residents to keep hens in their backyards, citing concerns from the SPCA.Last April, discussions to potentially allow residents to keep hens in their backyards were included in Council’s June strategic planning sessions. But on January 8th the discussion item, which included discussions about the hens along with cat regulations, was dropped from Council’s Works in Progress list after Mayor Lori Ackerman indicated that the topics weren’t included in the strategic plan.Resident Lance Bayet wrote a letter to Council at the end of last month, asking for the issue of allowing backyard poultry to be reconsidered. A motion was passed to reaffirm that the topic of backyard hens be dropped from Council’s Works in Progress, effectively quashing any further discussion on allowing backyard chicken coops. The North Peace SPCA is contracted by the City to impound animals at large which are rounded up by bylaw officers. Mayor Ackerman explained that the SPCA continually faces capacity issues, which it said would be exacerbated by the shelter having to take care of chickens in addition to those animals it already cares for.last_img read more

He is someone who changes games with his enthusiasm and dynamism.“Patrick can change a match when he comes off the bench. He has also done well when starting, but always makes an impact as a substitute.“Cutrone should be proud of the call-up, as it must give him incredible joy. We’ll see if he actually goes because his ankle still hurts, but I’m proud he got the nod.”last_img read more
