I would like to commend Mr. Long for his comments regarding the strange happenings which were initiated recently by some of our senior administration.
He stated so well what has puzzled many of our citizens. Why is it that the administrators can come up with figures to prove that their pet project (going with OSPS) is to be our salvation when we are still waiting for the OPP estimates and the Consultants’ reports?
Who hired the Consultants? Why is it that these employees have such missionary zeal when promoting this rather nebulous proposal from our neighbour? Where is the evidence that they have the same desire to cut costs in other ways? What’s motivating them to push the limits when dealing with our elected representatives? Do our elected representatives even realize that the limits are being pushed? Does anyone who has been around here for any length of time remember Owen Sound reaching out to surrounding communities, offering to provide a service for a fraction of the cost of providing the same service to their own taxpayers?
