2017: In Review

It’s December 31st, 2017.  I’d like to thank everyone who has visited my site this year.

Let’s look at some of  the highlights of the year:

The most popular posts this year are Nabucco a Success in HD Broadcast (151 views), Condominium Social Committees (148 views), Thoughts on Der Rosenkavalier Live in HD (83 views), Shirley Temple Dies at 85 (45 views), and Board Cannot Refuse Communication Between Owners (23 views.)

In January, Tim Raines was elected to the Hall of Fame.

Queen Elizabeth’s Statute

In February, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 65 years as Monarch and the Canadian Opera Company performed Götterdämmerung.

In March, I argued that a Board of Directors should not force owners to sign a requisition to hold an owners’ meeting, but should call the meeting on their own if there appears to be an interest or desire for the meeting.

In April, we celebrated the Queen’s 91st Birthday, and discussed the opening and second rounds of the NHL playoffs.

In May, we celebrated the 50th Birthday of GO Transit, and previewed the Stanley Cup Finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and  the Nashville Predators.  I also commented on how Board of Directors can control any changes to a condominium’s By-laws and how this is not fair.

In June, we remembered the 73rd Anniversary of the D-Day landings, as well as the passing away of Peter Sallis, Adam West, and Don Matthews.

On July 1st, Canada celebrated its 150th birthday.

In August, the CNE honoured our veterans with its’ annual Warriors’ Day Parade and I questioned why a condominium director would resign only to be re-appointed to the Board right away.

In September, I reminded people that a condominium Board cannot stop owners from communicating with each other.

In October, the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers to win their first World Series title.

In November, I reminded condominium owners that directors could replace the officers, but only owners can replace directors.

In December, Halifax remembered the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion and legendary goaltender Johnny Bower passed away at 93.

2017 was a busy year.  Let’s hope 2018 is just as busy.  Happy New Year!
