Bully

 

This isn't over.

  1. You have a large plywood box shaped like a boat in your drive way.

    But until it has a means of propulsion so that it can remove itself from place to place, and a means to steer so that it can navigate while doing so, I doubt that it is a vehicle.

    "Vehicle" has a specific and narrow definition under the law.
    I suspect that definition might be found in the provincial vehicle code.

    1. Thanks Craig. I'll be contesting the ticket, and any subsequent that are issued.

  2. /sigh. Just keep on doing what you can Alan. It probably seems like a huge thing at the moment but before long you'll be looking back on this whole episode, sun-dappled and relaxed, waves and wind, wildlife and wilderness putting everything into true perspective.

    1. Thanks Jon. I do try to remain objective and my head remains in that place. My body responds otherwise though. Not as easy to control...

  3. The post is blank to my browser. I take it you got a ticket after all?

  5. Find your inner Buddha, buddy. Otherwise, a municipal fine could be the least of your worries, and that would truly be a tragic shame.

    1. Thanks Yoda. I'm feeling better and quite heartened by all of the support I'm getting in the neighbourhood. I think the city may back down for a short while - at least I hope so. I really don't need a lot more time. If not though, another fine young person on my side who happens to be a media/journalism student has a press release ready to fly.

    2. Best is finish and get in the water. Still, I was tempted to wonder how many people on the "against" list have oversized RVs in their driveways.
