Jim McLean enlightened the public with a poem, ‘The Complete History of Radio in Moose Jaw.’
“April is poetry month in Canada. Unfortunately, it’s also allergy month,” he said. “I was given five minutes to read poetry and I found one that was five minutes long. I think it’s probably appropriate for this venue.”
At last week's council meeting, he read his piece of poetry to start off the meeting as part of the Mayor’s Poetry City Challenge.
