Are the best laid plans sometimes actually “laid?”
This Saturday is Sarnia’s annual Easter In The Park, a family event scheduled every year for the holiday weekend. The popular “egg hunt” activity will bring about something new this year…
After a year of rising tensions and heated rhetoric surrounding a number of controversial local issues and unpopular decisions, city council decided they would stop making their own decisions and would instead place various proposals and solutions in plastic eggs that are to be hidden in the park. Whichever ideas are found and collected will be tallied and rolled into decisions made on several pressing and future issues.
“Why bother anymore?” asks Coun. Bev Macdougall. “No matter what we decide, we get it wrong and it’s probably time we let some of our young people decide for us.”
“We still want to ultimately make all the decisions but I want to be in control,” Coun. Terry Burrell said. “I’ve personally made sure I like all the possible outcomes that have been hidden in the eggs and placed my favourite ones in plain sight.”
Bradley Davis, 6, says “It will be fun to find all the answers the old people are looking for.”
The egg hunt will begin around 10 am on Saturday in Canatara Park.
