Neighbours of the Jukasa Speedway in Nelles Corners were forced to listen to loud music as late as two or three o’clock in the morning, despite repeated attempts on the part of security to shut it down.

Nevertheless, Haldimand County Mayor Ken Hewitt “believes things will continue to improve as the track continues to grow.”

This strikes me as being rather like telling people who are already huddled in raincoats on their roof, “Don’t worry, the flood waters will go down as the hurricane continues to intensify.”

I think Jukasa Speedway can afford to hire its own Public Relations people.  Mayor Hewitt should be defending the interests of the citizens who elected him.
