How does one go about hiding a 30-metre pole in the midst of the suburbs? It’s a tall order, but The Toronto Star reports that New Life Church in Milton is thinking of doing just that. If plans go through, the Thompson Road-area church will construct a “cross style steel telecommunications mono-pole tower” - that is, a shiny 10-storey cross to house a Bell cell phone tower. The application was made on February 28, but locals are balking.
