    Well...it's now after 2pm and the water is still shut off. Any updates on this, as to when service is expected to be restored? All the work done in Canning on the roads and down town has been done with no concern for the residents. In theory, all this work is being done to improve the town. Unfortunately, the level of disregard for the functionality of the town has been extremely disappointing. This water shut off going on for more than an hour past when it was scheduled for is only the latest move from the Town of Canning disregarding its residents. Other issues endured over the past month include the construction stops of 20min. or more, the general blockage of essential services such as the grocery store AND post office, not to mention the terrible condition the roads have been left in as the workers move on to other sections of the road. I'm all for improving the town, but it seems that the work is to be carried out regardless of the people who still need to work and live in Canning. Similar work on essential water mains was recently completed in Wolfville, with much less intrusion into the functionality of the town. Even when traffic was being directed by construction workers, no stop was more than five minutes (unlike the 20min stops endured by Canning residents) and accessibility to essential services was never blocked. It is possible to complete work on schedule, without absolutely disregarding residents. Canning might not be as wealthy or central as Wolfville, but we deserve the same respect. This respect isn't being shown.
