Petition To Rid Town Of Black Problem Neil Downs October 15, 2015 All Stories, Anyways..., As if..., Not Even 2 Comments Portage la Prairie, MB – Local homeowners are concerned at the arrival of too much black in their neighbourhood. B. Fehr and his wife Betty have expressed concern over seeing an all black house built in the new development near their home. “We feel it stands out amongst our predominately white and light beige homes. Our town has mostly light coloured homes and we feel it should stay that way,” said Fehr. “Quite a few of the neighbours are concerned. We feel we should have been consulted before this house was allowed. There is plenty of room north of the tracks! It doesn’t matter what colour your house is there. This house doesn’t belong in this part of town.” “We want to get a petition together to move the house north of the tracks. There were several brown houses on our street, that were there long before we built, but we had them moved to the end of the street. It’s a little swampy but they don’t seem to mind,” offered Fehr. Neighbour, Ava Heart, has a more moderate stance. “I’m okay with these houses being here as long as they don’t cover their windows so we can tell who is in there.” Others supporting the Fehr petition voiced concerns. “First we had to deal with the brown houses, now this black one. What’s next a bunch of multi-coloured homes being built all over town?” said Ivan Ichianus. City council will be dealing with the issue as the group plans on making a presentation at the next council meeting. *This story is based on information from the minds of our writers, unconfirmed, unrelenting, unreliable and mostly fictional sources.

Reply Shane Neufeld November 10, 2015 We shall discuss this serious matter with the editorial board. The new ownership and additions to the editorial staff seem to have an affection to this kind of journalism, albeit fictional. We thank you for your patience and understanding. They say truth is stranger than fiction and by the measure of some of these stories Portage may be a very odd place. Peace out!
