Owen Sound Mayor Deb Haswell sat down with Owensoundhub.org recently to chat about politics, her re-election effort, how she approaches controversy, and the challenges facing the city.

With Councillor Jim McManaman the odd man out, Owen Sound city council voted Thursday to grant the beleaguered downtown bus terminal a one-year reprieve, while seeking a partnership for the terminal that may reduce its annual total cost, now between $90,000 and $100,000.

Would the city of Owen Sound want to own the downtown bus terminal if the buses no longer stopped there?

I do not have an answer. But if the community does, perhaps in the conversation that will occur during the one-year grace period agreed upon Thursday by council, there should be an opportunity for the subject to be considered before the building and its substantial asphalt surroundings are sold off, if efforts to find a partner are unsuccessful.
