Action not dialogue needed

The wheels of progress in the little town of Dundas move at the same speed as snails climbing a greased downspout at my house.

The dilapidated Veldhuis greenhouses sit forlornly along King Street by the eastern entrance to Dundas making all who enter our town cringe in disgust and embarrassment. Nothing will happen about cleaning up this mess until some kids playing among the broken glass become severely injured or killed.

Then, of course, the City of Hamilton will spring into action and clean it up in a day. In their columns in Hamilton Community News, politicians go out of their way to tell us what wonderful things other people/organizations are doing. How about springing into action for a change?
