Man Finally Gets To Show Adults Cool Treehouse Plans

A new vision for Bayside Mall

After decades of yanking on pant legs and pleading with grownups to look at his drawing, a man finally has their attention.

Several downtown residents and business owners attended an information session Monday night where plans were unveiled by a developer who recently acquired the Bayside Centre and five surrounding properties.

“It’s really cool, I think they think it’s cool too, because climbing into a tree house and going inside where you putted all your stuff is cool,” said Gordon Laschinger of Wilsondale Assets Management.

The drawing took two entire recesses at school, explained Laschinger.

“Before nobody would look when I showed it to them, but now that we bought half of downtown with some of our own money, all the adults near by have to look at my picture of it and it’s really fun.”

Laschinger is confident in the plans, but remains open to feedback.

“Some of the big people didn’t like all my ideas but we made it better for them and they might like it now,” he said.

Pat Davidson Coming Out Of Retirement

Sarnia-Lambton MP Pat Davidson coming out of retirement

Sarnia-Lambton Conservative MP Pat Davidson announced today that she will be coming out of retirement in 2015.

“It was a very relaxing phase in my life in a beautiful community,” she said. “It’s important to take care of yourself and not get caught up in all the  worries of the people around you all the time.”

Davidson had served in politics at different levels beginning in 1980. Since 2006, she says she has enjoyed a slower pace of life and recommends others do the same.

“If I have any advice for my fellow citizens, it is that you should take at least a few years off, hire someone to respond to all your correspondence, disengage from the public and unburden yourself from all responsibility,” she said, “but it’s easier when you first convince a small percentage of people that you should receive about $160,000 a year for no reason in particular.”
