City Service Truck #22 (Nov. 2011)
CST #1111/0022 followed a heated debate within the City's Cultural Services Department focused on whether this last available truck would be kept as a spare or be used to make a statement reflecting the Department's commitment to the City's cultural life. With the recent election bringing a new direction to City Council -a 'return to basics' mandate- the new councillors interpreted the Department's intent as a critique of Council. The inadvertent use of the new mayor's campaign colour didn't help. The City's Cultural Services Department was disbanded shortly thereafter.
CSTug Thunderbird (2015-16)
CSTug# 01215During a recent purge of old files at City Hall, a box containing this boat model was discovered. It turns out that this model had been developed to accompany a proposal by city staff to extend the Cultural Support Policy to include the city's river and lakefronts.
The proposal outlined the purchase and restoration of a retired harbour tug from Lisbon, Portugal, and its outfitting with the most current innovations in audio and video delivery. Meant to compliment City Service Truck #0910/0010 - a mobile audio platform, this City Service Tug, nicknamed Thunderbird, fell victim to the election of the new council.
