Although Sidney and New York City are on opposite sides of the continent, a Sidney councillor thinks the town is the perfect place for a plaque to remember the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. “Everybody remembers where they were on that day,” said councillor Kenny Podmore. “Sidney being a little town with a very big heart, I felt it would be nice to commemorate this.” He plans to hold a simple unveiling on Sept. 11 at 1:30 p.m. by the visitors information centre in Bevan Park. He expects

Town gives food bank rent break Continued from Page A1

“It provides a service that benefits the other two municipalities,” said Clarke. Mar compared the request to a past suggestion, which was rejected, of cost-sharing for the Mary Winspear Centre, which is within Sidney town limits but used by the other two districts. “All communities have different functions. Communities make use of each others’ facilities all the time,” Mar said. North Saanich Mayor Alice Finall said council is already looking at budget items for next year, so any donations would be for 2012. She also questioned whether council would support the idea, but said she needs more information first. Both she and Mar said they would prefer to receive the letter and exact numbers before mak-

ing a decision. “I’d love to mull that over,” Mar said. But Central Saanich councillor Terry Siklenka said he supports the idea in principle. “I think the food bank is an excellent resource,” he said. “If it comes before council, I’d definitely consider it.” Although the letter recived some support at Monday’s council meeting, Central Saanich deferred Sidney’s request to its 2012 grant-in-aid process. Sidney council also passed a motion to eliminate nearly all of the food bank’s rent, reducing it from $6,000 to $1, beginning Jan. 1, 2012. Clarke said it didn’t make sense to charge rent to the organization, which serves the community on a volunteer basis.
