Silly season has started

It may be only May, but the silly season has started. For those of you new to the lingo, the silly season is the lead-up to an election - in this case, the municipal elections set for November.

The level of senseless vandalism and graffiti in the Town of Gibsons is starting to take its toll on Town council and staff.
