Are We About to Get The Council We Deserve?

MeBWmediaI had hoped that by this stage of the summer there would be plenty to write about - and debate about - with regard to the upcoming municipal election. So far though, the only thing that can be said about the municipal election is that there is nothing to say.

 

On June 28th I asked the question "Where are the candidates?" and now with less than a month remaining before the nomination deadline, Meaford has just four declared candidates for the seven seats around the council horseshoe and the question remains the same.

Let's Talk Trash

MeBWmediaJudging by many of the letters to the editor, and the latest poll run on TMI, it would appear that there are many folks who are unhappy with the changes the municipality has made to the collection of residential trash and recyclables.

Remembering Oka

kaisha_bwThis week marks the 20th anniversary of the Oka Crisis, the land dispute between the Mohawk community of Kanesatake and Oka residents.  The standoff began July 11th, 1990 lasting until September 26th, 1990.

 

The dispute began when Oka, the nearby town wanted to expand their golf course (from 9 holes to 18 holes) and add residential development. The land in question was sacred to the Mohawks because it was a burial ground and pineland. The Mohawks had filed a land claim prior to the standoff but it was rejected.

It's Just a Hot Dog Stand...

MeBWmediaDon and Kathy Evanson want to start up a hot dog vending cart business in downtown Meaford. That fact shouldn't really be a news story, but it is going to be.

 

Why?

 

Well, we live in a society that at times seems hell-bent on drowning itself in rules and regulations most often in an effort to protect what we feel is ours, or to lock others out.
