In rei publicae tempus quaestio: the political question and scenario time!

The idea

Here are some interesting hypothetical political pertinent morality questions, events and dilemmas on national affairs that are based on what would hit a UK, French, Dutch, Belgian, Pennsylvanian, New England and\or Irish regime between 1995 and 2020.

The climate is a mixture of maritime, humid subtropical climate that closely borders on maritime because it is largely influenced by the warm Gulf Stream and the surrounding ocean, Mediterranean, oceanic that borders on a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, continental climate bordering on Mediterranean, mountain temperate, marine west coast that borders on a warm-summer Mediterranean climate, warm summer continental, humid continental climate, warm-summer Mediterranean climate, hemiboreal continental, subpolar oceanic and boreal subarctic climates.

It is set on an fictitious island, in part of the real North Atlantic. The multicultural nation portrayed is statistically comparable to Western Europe, New England and Pennsylvania in 1995 and 2020. The island's area is roughly that of the UK and Ireland combined and the population is 48,437,576. It is placed equidistant between St Kilda in the UK and Nantucket Island in the USA.

It is a friendly capitalist democracy that is modded on the UK's systems of law, military ethos, commerce, education and government.

  • GDP per capita is $62,000.
  • Child mortality is minimal.
  • Armed forces personnel number 25,000.
  • Adult literacy is 100%.
  • Life expectancy is 78.5 years of age.

It is a totally fictitious example nation which has it's own domestic affairs and locations based on factual events and the hypothetical situations set with in it. It is a political simulator and quiz; not a political parody, comment, polemic or slur on any nation.

The questions

Clearwater Region

Local event 1

The port city of Clearwater lies 25 miles northeast of Tref y Dyffryn.

The port city of Clearwater lies 25 miles northeast of Tref y Dyffryn. The local bus station is a major transport hub for the city. Sadly the IT system running the real time passenger information displays crashed repeatedly, due to lack of memory errors, since it was installed last week. Both the Bristowe Island Bus Corp. and the Telecommunication and IT Facility Coordination Group (TFITCG) are looking in to why General Electric Company plc sold them such inadequate stuff.

Local event 2

The River Clearwater (left) and the River Royce (right) meeting to form the River Boyde.

The River Clearwater (left) and the River Royce (right) meeting to form the River Boyd. The 50 year old bridge on the M7 Tref y Dyffryn-Clearwater motorway is near to collapse with concret cancer.

The alkali–silica reaction (ASR), more commonly known as "concrete cancer", is a swelling reaction that occurs over time in concrete between the highly alkaline cement paste and the reactive non-crystalline (amorphous) silica found in many common aggregates, given sufficient moisture. ASR can lead to serious cracking in concrete, resulting in critical structural problems that can even force the demolition of a particular structure.

The County council and Ministry of Transportation say it is OK, yet the Clearwater Gazette, Clearwater FM, Bristow Island Driving Society and the East Clearwater Residents Association all say it's it's dangerous decayed, which evidence suggests is for the most part true.

The river is also reguly filled with autumn leaves and smells strongly of methane.

Local event 3

One mile south of Clearwater is the costal commuter town of Benton.

One mile south of Clearwater is the costal commuter town of Benton. It's newly elected National Party MP recently said it was a "brain dead hovel full of morons in little red brick boxes!". He also mocked the fact that most of the locals, unlike him, spoke Scouse. He then, unsurprisingly, received a dead rodent in the post a week day later. He was also slammed by the hosts of Clearwater FM's breakfast show a few days after he said his controversial remarks. It is reckoned that his short and ugly political career is now over and he will stand down for another party candidate at the next election.

Local event 4

.

Clearwater's St. Cuthbert's Church is reguly vandalised by local, mostly jobless youths after the local community center burnt down a year ago . The vicar thinks they need help finding jobs and entertainment, but the verger thinks they are evil and worthless. Most eople just don't like finding litter and food debris strewn about the grave yard every Saterday and Sunday.

Local event 5

John Hogarth dock in the port city of Clearwater.

John Hogarth dock in the port city of Clearwater was raided a few days back by the Bristow Island National Narcotics Squad to find a reported illegal importation of LSD after a tip-off.

They did seas indeed 2,000 LSD tabs, 5lb of 90% pure cocaine and 4,000 ecstasy pills, along with 2 local dealers. They also unexpectedly found 3,000 pairs of fake Nike trainers, but not the people that were planning to pick them up.

Local event 6

The 4,000 year old Longfell Castlerigg Stone Circle in the Clearwater Fell Country, 22 miles N. E. of Clearwater.

The 4,000 year old Longfell Castlerigg Stone Circle in the Clearwater Fell Country, 22 miles N. E. of Clearwater. It has been a local attraction for about 250 years and is archaeological proof of the island's first inhabitants. Local hooligans threw paint over them several times recently and the park rangers are being outsmarted each time. A police officer is now on patrol there during weekdays to help find out who is doing it.


Local event 7

The Clearwater to Chalkville via Barton canal in the satellite town of Volehampton, 18 miles southwest of Clearwater.

The Clearwater to Chalkville via Barton canal in the satellite town of Volehampton, 18 miles southwest of Clearwater City Centre, is blocking up badly with crap since is regularly used as a makeshift dump by both the local furniture factory and several locals. It has also not been cleaned out out for 15 years and stinks badly in the summer. Late night drunks regularly piss and puke in the river to. The local duck population has imploded from 35 to 22 in the last 4 years.

The water was also carrying large amounts of oil and grime that was leaking from a drane that was broken at least 10 years ago, may be a few year longer than that, who knows exactly when. The drain runs beneath 2 garages and several shops. The research was carried out by King's College, London, UK.

Environmentalists want it cleaned out, the junk removed and have it made environmentally friendly. The local drunks still want to use it as a toilet and vomitorium. Local some local people and the local furniture firm still want to use it as an informal dump. Everyone agrees the heavy summer stench of stagnant water, human urine, excess natural sulfur compounds and excess natural methane gas needs to be dealt with quickly.

Volehampton District Council Volehampton County Council Clearwater Regional Council say they can not afford to clean it out for the foreseeable future and blame each other for the failure to look after the canal in recent years.

Everyone agrees that he NOx levels are causing the last 5 years' rise in asthma cases and must be reduced fast. Air pollution from road traffic is high and asthma levels are heavy. In areas of high motor vehicle traffic, like Volehampton, the amount of nitrogen oxides emitted into the atmosphere as air pollution can be significant and a major contributor to making acid rain, ground level ozone, particulates and the gray summer haze that comes down over the Volehampton center at times. particulate matter (also called particle pollution) is mixture of solid particles and liquid droplets found in the air and it is commonplace in the local air.

Local event 8

Volebridge, 19 miles southwest of Clearwater City Centre, is a run down ex-mining town.

Volebridge, 19 miles southwest of Clearwater City Centre, is a run down ex-mining town. The pit ran from 1880 to 1980, when it closed for economic reasons. The local pottery closed in 1985 and the local furniture shop closed in 1990. Most young people now work in Volehampton and then move out of Volebridge once they have enough money to do so.

The locals lament the lack of jobs, lack of local amenities, endemic vandalism by bored youth, the decaying council flats, high number of oldies, declining population and heavy traffic pouring in to Volehampton on there streets. Many say there town needs a by-pass road to elevate the rush-hour traffic going through it.

Chalk Vale Region

Local event 1

Nighthawking is the theft of archaeological artifacts from protected archaeological sites and areas under the cover of darkness, something which has become common on this Chalkville farm over the last 10 years.

Chalkville is 75 miles west of Bristow City Center and 25 miles south of Hepworth. Nighthawking is the theft of archaeological artifacts from protected archaeological sites and areas under the cover of darkness, something which has become common on this farm over the last 10 years. It all started when the Chalk Vale Regional Archaeological Society found some 500 year old pottery on the site. Once they left the nighthawking started.

The farmers' dog bit one badly and was shot last year. He lost a leg, but not his feisty attitude! The farmer put a CCTV camera in the most raided field and on his tractor shed door.

Local event 2

Chalkville station has been improved over the last 6 years!

Chalkville station has been improved over the last 6 years! It has more wheelchair ramps, a lift for wheelchair usage and more notices in braille text for blind people.

The local MP said that wheelchair users were "A bunch of worthless spasmo-dicks." in the Chalkville and District Gazette.

The National Disabled Beuro and local residents held a rally the next day outside it in support of the ramps and lift.

Local event 3

Chalkville 17th century Manor House formerly formerly belonged to the island's King.

Chalkville 17th century Manor House formerly formerly belonged to the island's King. It became The governor's palace 150 years ago and then the local museum in 70 years ago.

A suspected nighthawker said that thought it was going to soft on local farmer's property rights and paying metal detectorists to little for their finds. He then took his trousers down, waggled his penis at a curator, put his trousers back on and ran out before the curator could stop him.

Local event 4

Chalkville Holy Trinity parish church.

A bunch of drunk party goers burst into the grounds of Chalkville Holy Trinity parish church on Boxing Day night, ruing the place. The impromptu drunken rampage lead to the place being covered in vomit, litter, urine and fast-food. A gravestone was knocked over.

Local event 5

Chalk visible in ploughed soil in Steepleton is 57 miles west of Bristow City Center and 35 miles south of Hepworth.

Steepleton is 57 miles west of Bristow City Center and 35 miles south of Hepworth. Nighthawking is the theft of archaeological artifacts from protected archaeological sites and areas under the cover of darkness, something which has become common on this farm over the last 10 years. It all started when the Chalk Vale Regional Archaeological Society found some Viking era pottery on the site. Once they left the nighthawking started.

The farmer had tried to scare them off worth his rottweiler dog, but they only left after they accidental found an old IRA arms dump. It has now been despised of by Bristowe Island's army bomb disposal team.

Local event 6

The Clearwater to Homerville via Barton City and Chalkville M6 motorway passes through the Alder Hills.

The Clearwater to Homerville via Barton City and Chalkville M6 motorway passes through the Alder Hills. The road regularly becomes regularly iced over in the winter, which is why there are several vehicles crashes and 2-5 deaths there each year. The Bristow Island Driving Society has called for it to be reguly de iced, but the transport minister says it is not worth spending further money on extra deicing and gritting runs over it.

Local event 7

Ben Shaw Pont in the Alder Hills is a popular tourist site, but it has become hopelessly covered in litter and dog shit.

Ben Shaw Pont in the Alder Hills is a popular tourist site, but it has become hopelessly covered in litter and dog shit. The Alderville Parish Council has complained about the phenomena in the Chalkville and District Gazette, but with no avail, since no one wants to use other the lter bins or the dog shit bin provided.

Local event 8

The site of Alder Vale's old station.

The station opened in 1885, closed to passengers in 1905, closed to freight in 1965 and has been an access point for rail-workers and (platelayers, trackmen, etc.) ever since.

The Alderville Parish Council, Alder Vale Parish Council, Alder Vale County Council and Alder Vale FM have all expressed concern over the open nature of the site.

A small pipe bomb blew up at the entrance gate to BIAFB Henderson a few days ago and no one was harmed.

A small pipe bomb blew up at the entrance gate to BIAFB Henderson a few days ago and no one was harmed. The air base is 10 miles north of Chalkville. Chalkville Police examined the debris and found no definitive evidence. No one is suspected or calming responsibility for the blast as of yet, but police enquiry continue.

Northern Province

Local event 1

The High Street in Ramston.

A construction permit covering sand and gravel was issued last month for a sight 1 mile west of the northern town of Ramston. Aggregate MN, Direct Aggregate Supplies Ltd. and Lafarge S.A. will operate the site.

People's concerns are relating to the noise, dust, extra traffic and the cutting down of several ~100 year old trees. Economists say it will create jobs for the next 20 to 30 years. Ecologists say it will be ruin the environment for the next 50 to 60 years. The roads of are very potholed to due to years of bad weather and council neglect. The roads are often full of 3 to 4 ft heavy snow drifts in January and February.

Local event 2

The village church flooded 3 years ago.

The village church flooded 3 years ago. The villagers and vicar want the River Quickwater dragged out and canalized to reduce the risk of flooding. Environmentalists say it will probably kill the large local newt colony. The floods left 100 families homeless and the local school badly damaged. It took 6 months to clear up and repair the flood damage. 

Local event 3

Church of St James the Great in Longford.

The 200 year old all Church of St James  in Longford ran out of money to repair the failing roof, which has leaked for 3 years due to heavy storm damage. Youths stole the remaining roof lead last year. The local vicar launched an appeal for funds in the Ramsdale gazette.

Church donations, the Ramsdale gazette appeal and a online crowdfunding campaign have raised a lot of money, but it is still not enough to do all the repairs with, so the vicar has now requested help from the ministry of culture.

Local event 4

The town centre of Longford.

5 miles west of Ramston is Longford. Some locals claimed that new Balti quesne restaurant and Chinese takeaway both make a bad stink and a lot of litter in the High Street since they opened 2 months ago.

Ramston and Longford Borough Council's inspector found last month that whilst litter went up a bit, the was neither any notable smell or a spike in anti-social behavior around the shops. The council has chosen to investigate how many new litter bins are needed and were they can be put in the High Street.   The Ramsdale gazette launched an appeal to remote the installation of more litter bins in the street and people using the existing one more often.

Local event 5

The farming town of Langford, 22 miles northwest of Ramston.

The Island's biggest Covid-19 outbreak is in agricultural town of Langford, 22 miles northwest of Ramston. It is a major framing, meat packing, plank cutting and logging settlement. Most of the population is bilingual in Standard British English and Cumbrian dialect English.

A 2 month local lockdown, testing and tracking are all going ahead. The 32 victimas and 98 suspected victims are self-isolating.

100 people may have it in Langford, Malvik, Clearwater, Baile an Abhainn, Longford, Ramston, Benton and Breakwater, so they are self isolating. The nation's 18 known victimas are self-isolating in Langford, Malvik, Clearwater, Brockley, Baile an Abhainn,.

The island has only a few victims so far and the disease is now fully contained. 

Rhanbarth Ymreolaethol Cymru

Local event 1

Tref y Dyffryn's sea front and bay.

The place is a popular seaside resort, but summer night life is getting ruined by rising knife crime. It is at a 12 year high and may break the 20 year high this year if it continues to rise at current rates. The public say drugs, drunkenness, joblessness and youth center closures are blighting the town. Social experts say it's because of obesity, joblessness and youth center closures. The police and teachers both blame drugs, lack of moral fiber and youth center closures. Doctors are desperate to stop the influx of stabbed, hopelessly drunk and dangerously high people. Local takeaway and souvenir shop owners are desperate to stop the nocturnal stabbings that on several occasions spilled over into their shops.

Sadly, another teenage male was stabbed last night. He was wounded in the neck outside the local college and is now critically ill in the hospital. Witnesses told the Tref y Dyffryn Recorder the ethnically Welsh victim was chased and attacked in the road outside the town's technical college by a mob of about 6 to 8 ethnically English teenagers of mixed gender. The victim was brought into the nearby library for treatment after the attack. Tref y Dyffryn County Police said no arrests have been made so far and their inquiries continue.

Local event 2

The northwestern hamlet of Porth y Geifr is dependent on road transport to connect it to the rest of the nation's rural northwest and Tref y Dyffryn.

The northwestern hamlet of Porth y Geifr is dependent on road transport to connect it to the rest of the nation's rural northwest and Tref y Dyffryn. Not many people have cars in the hamlet or the rural northwest. The local bus service says the rout to Tref y Dyffryn is non-viable without a major state subsidy due to poor passenger numbers, so it will be withdrawn soon. The locals say they will be cut off and the village will die. Tref y Dyffryn County Council say that local taxes must go up modestly to pay for the subsiding of the routes that will be closed otherwise.

Local event 3

A train pulls in to Llyn Defaid Junction near Tref y Dyffryn.

Llyn Defaid Junction 15 south west of Tref y Dyffryn is a popular tourist station that is very busy with campers and hikers in the spring and summer. Iti's 5 lines go to Tref y Dyffryn, Baile an Abhainn, Harrisburg, Hepworth and Barton.The small town of Llyn Defaid relies on the tourist industry for 90% of it's jobs, the rest being at the railway station and the local farms.

Vandals keep on blocking the line to Tref y Dyffryn and Baile an Abhainn at night with concrete blocks for the last 8 months. 8 trains stopped in time, but 6 were derailed at low speed. The manager of Bristowe Island Railway said on both national TV and Welsh regional radio that he was concerned about the train delays, wasted time, wasted money damage trains and risk of ether injury or death caused by the vandalism.

Tref y Dyffryn County Police said no arrests have been made so far and their enquiries continue. A security guard and cop now patrol the station day and night, and they will continue to do so for the next 6 months. A CCTV system will be installed next month.

Local event 4

The Bethesda Slate Quarry was opened in 1931 and closed in 2007 due to rising costs. It is 1 mile north west of Tref y Dyffryn.

The Bethesda Slate Quarry was opened in 1931 and closed in 2007 due to rising costs. It is 1 mile north west of Tref y Dyffryn. The barrier fence fell down in 2021 and warning singe was destroyed in 2013. Several suicides, a murder, an illegal rave and countless drug abuse acts have now taken place there, to the locals' disgust. The locals want a security guard to patrol the site to keep intruders out.

Local event 5

Fort Lancaster is a former WW1 and WW2 army base 1.5 mile south east of Tref y Dyffryn. It was shelled-out by the German navy in WW2.

Fort Lancaster is a former WW1 and WW2 army base 1.5 mile south east of Tref y Dyffryn. It was shelled-out by the German navy in WW2. It was rebuilt in 1946 and closed in 1958. A local farmer's sheep was walking around in it and several were blown op by a long abandoned anti-personnel landmine. The farmer found a live 1950s hand grenade, live 1940s anti-personnel mine and some bullets, which were safely deposed of. The bomb squad inspected the place and declared it safe after weak of activity.

Fort Greywood is a former WW1 and WW2 army base 1.5 mile south west of Tref y Dyffryn. It was shelled-out by the German navy in WW2. It was rebuilt in 1946 and closed in 1957. A local child was messing around in it and found a live 1950s hand grenade, which was safely defused. The bomb squad inspected the place and declared it safe after 2 days activity.

South Western Region

Local event 1

Drax's Beach on the south western Drax Peninsula.

The ever growing heaps of dropped litter on Drax's Beach on the south western Drax Peninsula has lead to a seagull, herring gull and pigeon infestation crisis. The number of birds went up from 100 to 1,000 over the last 5 years. No one likes the disruptive, greedy, noisey and hyper-violent infestation!

Local event 2

A polling station at a school in the the village of Goatington.

The 3 polling stations in the the south western village of Goatington are never used much and the villages are known for a historically low turn out rate.

Reports have it that most of the ballot box were inexplicably stuffed full of ballot papers and tellers won't explain why. A vising journalist from the Bristowe Island Chronicler said he thinks there is electoral fraud through the use of ballot stuffing taking place.

Local event 3

Hamilton High Street.

The High Street is little used by locals. The citizens of the small town of Hamilton are scared that the recent spate of late night muggings and last month's bank robbery will drive tourists away from the town. There are calls for more CCTV cameras, stronger policing and the opening a local youth club from the parish council and local activists. Jobs outside the tourist sector are limited to a few shops, a pub, a bank and 3 farms.

The locals also recently became terrified that a citizen would get run down and killed by speeders and joyriders from Brockley Borough and Bushford Borough, who think they can treat Hamilton like a racetrack. There are calls from everyone for speed cameras, shickianes and\or speed bumps to stop the hooligans from driving so fast. Both the robbers behind last month's bank robbery and most of the muggers behind the recent spate of late night muggings were also not local and the headlines of the Bristowe Island Chronicler are frightening to read.

A security guard and cop now patrol the High Street, along with the adjoining bus station and village green at night, and will continue to do so for the next 6 months. Southwestern Regional Police said no arrests have been made so far and their enquiries continue.

Local event 4

Searlehampton parish church.

The small farming village of Searlehampton is 1 mile west of Goatington. A bunch of drunk party gowers burst into the grounds of Searlehampton parish church on a May Day night, ruing the place. The impromptu drunken rampage lead to the place being covered in vomit, litter, urine, pro-ethnic English graffiti and fast-food. A gravestone was knocked over and another grave pooped on. The local vicar was very upset by this and condemned the incident in the Searlehampton and Goatington Chronicle the next day.

Nieuwe Autonome Regio Groningen

Local event 1

The canal in De Velden.

The canal in the eastern village of De Velden is silting up badly with mud from upstream and has not been dredged out for 20 years. Environmentalists want the local newts and swans left in peace, but local residents want it dredged out to avoid flooding during extremely wet weather, like that which hit the area 3 and 6 years ago. The floods of 3 year ago led to 100 of the 175 residents having their homes flooded. The 5 local farms and the local cheese factory were also badly flooded. The flooding lasted for 3 weeks and the damage was fixed after 6 months.

Local event 2

The polders of the New Groningen Region.

The polders of the Nieuwe Autonome Regio Groningen are flooding due to rising sea levels and stormier weather. The Gemeenteraads of De Velden and De Polderlanden imminent catastrophic if nothing is done to reduce the risk of flooding in the near future. The locals want the flood barriers, storm drains and channels upgraded, especially after the flooding of De Velden 3 and 6 years ago. The process would be very costly and moderately environmentally damaging in the short run, but the floods would be severely abated.

Local event 3

The farming communities around the small market town of De Polderlanden.

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), commonly known as mad cow disease, is a neurodegenerative disease of cattle. Symptoms include abnormal behavior, trouble walking, and weight loss. Later in the course the cow becomes unable to move. The time between infection and onset of symptoms is generally four to five years. Time from onset of symptoms to death is generally weeks to months.

BSE has be found in some cattle in the farming communities around the small market town of De Polderlanden. The farmers agree to have their infected cattle put down and burnt, are concerned by the fiscal impact. They are demanding heavy financial compensation to avoid bankruptcy due to the lost stock and productivity. Farming produces 90% of the town's jobs.

Farm hygiene has also been improved slightly.

Local event 4

The autonomous Gemeenteraad of Vlaamse stad Antwerpen the small market town of De Polderlanden.

The autonomous Gemeenteraad of Vlaamse stad Antwerpen is 5 miles northeast of the small market town of De Polderlanden.

There is a growing call by many locals that all refugees are to prevented them from immediately benefiting from the social security system. The Burgermeister has survived also public opinion expelling Arab and African immigrants of any kind (that's the job of the Border Control Agency, not the Gemeenteraad of Vlaamse stad Antwerpen). He also beat up a Walloon journalist during a temper tantrum late last year and did 6 months' jail time for it!

Local event 5

The steelmaking town of Groot Meer Stad is 50 miles north of Fordham.

The steelmaking town of Groot Meer Stad is 50 miles north of Fordham. It is a major industrial settlement and is the center of the Island's steel output. The town is 75% dependent on it for jobs.

People have been urged to avoid the Island Steel Corp. steelworks after a series of 3 rapid "huge explosions" Groot Meer Stad caused a fire to broke out and caused heavy damage at the plant's smelting facilities. Residents reported hearing "3 loud bangs", felt a "strange compression" in the air that sounded "as though a jet were about to pass", also felt a "apocalyptic shaking of the ground" and that they saw a "bright yellow light engulfing the town" at the steelworks in the Nieuwe Autonome Regio Groningen. Harrowing phone and cam-corder images showed plumes of smoke rising from the island's largest steel plant. The 3 explosions ripped through steel plant over a 5 minute period after spillage of liquid iron occurred due to poor handling of a train carrying molten iron metal.

The National Air Patrol Police Service launched a helicopter with in minutes to monitor the situation and 6 specialist Groot Meer Stad Fire Engines arrived within minutes of the 1st blast.

The local MP quickly raised safety concerns at the steelworks on local radio, after a fireman told him at the scean that 2 people were injured in an explosion. He said he new it was an accident waiting to happen and he had raised his concerns repeatedly. The head of Groot Meer Stad Hospital said "The blast came from a train used to carry molten metal and 3 people were slightly burnt by splashed metal.". The head of Groot Meer Stad Police said "Early indications are that the seat of the explosion was a train which carries molten metal into the works.".

The island's industrial health and safety boddy is now investigating the sean and are opening an official report into what had happened in the accident and how to prevent it' recurrence in future. The steel plant will take 6 months to repair.

Harrisburg Region

Local event 1

Harrisburg Hiking Trail is under repair.

The Harrisburg Regional Game Commission said last week that it would cost BI£1,700,000 to make Harrisburg Hiking Trail safe to use after last winter's heavy rain and snow toppled many trees and damage bridge on the route. It was founded 145 years ago by Americans who moved to Bristow Island to escape the American Civil War. 

Local event 2

Harrisburg City by the Yr Afon Fawr .

Harrisburg City's unemployment rate at record low 3.9 percent; down 4.2% on last year and lowest for 32 years. This is mostly due to the opening of a new mobile phone factory, a Dutch car insurance firm's Bristow Island branch's head office and a power station in the city. The city's factories also makes some post-formed worktops, wall panels, particleboard, medium density fibreboard, laminate flooring, resins and lubricating oil.

Every year, for the last 10 years, Harrisburg stocks its public waterways with millions of trout and salmon in the hopes that people will follow to fish in the rivers as on next year. Fishing license sales are at 50-year low, but with the planned increase release numbers will lead to more fish for wildlife and fishermen to catch.

The town's mascot is the salamander. The slimy amphibian needs clean streams to thrive, but oil leaking into the river made them ill and fall in number over the last 10 years.

Local event 3

The Yr Afon Fawr Lincoln Regional Park.

A 50 year old Harrisburg man was arrested and charged yesterday in connection with the disappearance and death by drowning of his 45 year old wife in the River Yr Afon Fawr during a hiking trip through Lincoln Regional Park last winter. He and his brother claimed it was an accident.

A 10 year old boy killed his 6 year old sister while playing with a gun in on the same stretch of path as the earlier drowning incident. The kid said his father gave him the gun and said the safety catch was on, but it evidently was not. The gun control and gun ownership lobbies both asy that people should use guns responsibly.

A 24 year old alcoholic woman also faces life in prison without the possibility of parole for smothering her 1.5 year old kid to death by holding him against the bedding of an air mattress until he stopped breathing.

Brock's Beach on the south eastern Brock Peninsula.

A broken marine outfall\sewage outflow pipe Brock's Beach on the south eastern Brock Peninsula has lead to a algae bloom crisis this year. It broke 3 years ago and spews sewage 50 ft, not 100 ft out to sea. A sewage outflow pipe is a cheap but dirty solution for struggling sanitation boards. For earlier and fast expanding towns, it's the only solution, unless you transport excess sewage to neighboring towns in the region for processing. The first pipe was 115 years ago, but was scrapped 75 years ago. The current pipe is 75 years old and should have been fixed 35 years ago, but was not.

St. Mary's Reach and Karenza's Bridge in Trescothick, during last years Annual Harbour Festival.

This years Trescothick Harbour Festival will be canceled due to a rapid increase in the population of phytoplankton or microalgae leading to an algal bloom or algae bloom. Also, some algae secrete poisons into the water. The production of natural toxins such as brevetoxins and ichthyotoxins are harmful to marine life. It has been deemed by port authorities to be toxic due to a fish die-off due to the alge's neurotoxins and the mass being so thick that is blocking out the sunlight from other organisms, and deplete oxygen levels in the water.

Trescothick's coastline has had trouble with it for several years now , but it has now boomed due to the mixture unusually hot weather, higher than average farm fertilizer runoff entering rivers that drain into the and the sinking of a bulk carry a few miles out to sea during a storm early last year (luckily no one died or got injured on the ship). It carried cars, TVs, writing paper, anhydrous ammonia (NH3) fertilizer, planks, ping-pong balls and ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) fertilizer.
