Tales of gold and community centres in Wakefield, Quebec

The Editor,

While reading the article about how our Wakefield, Quebec community centre development team will award the contract based on the estimates prescribed by the bidders, I was reminded of this old story:

One day a man pulled his wagon full of gold through the village. Feeling hungry, he stopped by the fresh market and announced, “I’d like to buy a turnip. How much does a turnip cost?”

The turnip vender eyed the wagon full of gold. “That will be a truck full of gold, please.”

The man frowned “Here,” he handed the turnip vender the wagon full of gold.

“Consider this a deposit. I’ll be back with more.”
