Gravesites in B0J 2L0’s Cemeteries are settling considerably after the Feb 2nd announcement of the Eastern Shore Consolidated new school being relocated to an Industrial Park location in Chezzetcook. I'm not an expert on this strange phenomenon, but most likely it's those dear souls who built up this community spinning in their graves after having heard this unbelievable, non-democratic decision.
Gravesites of people who built this community are the worst. For those who fought for our freedom and democracy during the two great war, to see “their” community’s fabric being torn away, it’s unconstitutional. What has happened to people’s democratic rights?
On social media, the school decision has got adjacent communities throwing rocks at each other. Well played, well done. Now let’s put neighbor against next-door neighbor too, as if there’s not enough problems within NS to deal with already.
We the people of B0J 2L0, both dead and alive, were not given any opportunity to skype/zoom within this government. We were not able to offer gifts of free land or possible commerce options to help our community stay employed.
Here’s hoping people across the province who have worked so hard building up their own communities will now realize how vulnerable they are. Remember what democracy was supposed to do; then remember what democracy didn’t do that made this decision possible—no wonder the grounds are shaking.
Another government coffin nail has been driven home in B0J 2L0. Today I’m taking my wheel barrel down to help fix up those sunken gravesites because it’s the right thing to do. Over time I’ll be planted there too. It won’t be hard to find as it will be the lowest sunken gravesite, next to the 60-year-old Eastern Shore District High School’s headstone, especially if this non-democratic madness doesn’t stop.
The ESDH announcement was a sad day for NS’s democracy. The Provincial flag at ESDH should be at half-mast.
