Morinville News � Blog Archive � Bertschi and Trapani differ on dealing with odour problem: "“Keeping up the smell in this town is not good for anybody,” Trapani said. “People’s going to move out and nobody’s going to want to move in. So me and the council in the future, you know on October 26, when they come to visit, the ultimatum is fix it or move out.”

Although the comment received a solid round of applause, it also generated some mumbling of surprise in the crowd. The comment was in stark contrast to what the candidate told residents of South Glen in a community forum the previous night. At that time, Trapani was vocal in his opposition to the odour and in his desire to see the problem fixed sooner rather than later.

“I don’t want to be in the position to tell them to pack up and leave, but I want to be in the position to help the business do what they’re supposed to be doing and make our life a lot easier,” Trapani had said in South Glens Oct. 12.

Bertschi, who is employed as a sales representative at neighbouring RV City, told attendees that he’s had customers, who had travelled to Morinville to look at product, leave after viewing only a couple units, unable to continue due to the smell."
