If the wrong person gets into a tit for tat with her, she's risking having her fish truck damaged . Will the people of St. John's continue to support the present group of councilors or will they give someone else a try? It's time to give it some thought. There's only one chance to vote and then it's business as usual for four more years so it's pretty important to get the best representation possible. Some people aren't shy about running but others need encouragement. In the meantime, all the players involved (councilor, parking officials, vendor and others), should sit down in neutral territory (community meeting rooms or corporate supermarket spaces) and talk it out sensibly. Why can't that happen?

People like Ms Taylor think they OWN wherever they go....Threats are not uncommon by those people..Move or be moved is their MOTO...

To Really: The same thing happened to a friend of mine...Ms. Taylor said the same thing to him and he also drove away. I wonder how many other's she has bullied? I agree with Dan...go to the village or Churchill Square...as it's a nuisance when cars stop to purchase flippers and fish down there anyway. It's just an accident waiting to happen!

Why not just go to the Village Mall parking lot! There are always spaces and I am sure the Village would not mind if you paid them a little to attract customers to the area, lord knows the Village needs the customers!

First of all to Really, to suggest that this lady would damage you new car is out of line, I have been a customer to this truck and alwayd found the lady to be friendly and to think she would do something like you suggest is just wrong. I agre with her, she is paying the City a fee and therefore should receive a service for her fee. Her truck and family have been a mainstay on the waterfront for as long as I can remember, they provide a grat product at a great price. We always hear how the seal hunt/fishery is under constan attack by foreigners yet here we have a lady who is helping to provide a market for the industry while at the same time providing residents with a delicious product. I say to Hann and company, give this lady her spot and make it a dedicated spot and lets all hope that she and her family continue to operate there for many more years to come.

Really? NO spot behind your truck for customers?? I was downtown for a meeting and parked in the empty space behind Ms. Taylor's truck. The spot was open and there was a meter available. When I got out of my car to put money in the meter Ms. Taylor procedded to tell me that was her space and get out of it! There was no signage saying it was a reserved spot and I proceded to tell her that. Thats when she said I could leave my car there but I better think hard about it if I wanted it in one piece when i came back. My car was a new car and I was not risking this woman doing something to it. I moved, but when i did I happened upon a city parking attendant and told him what she did. Apparently this was not an uncommon occurance and she had done it many times before. Dont worry about changing the rules city of st. john's, she's not following them anyway!
