Today was a BIG day on ScaleDown Radio! Andrew and I welcomed three city councillors on the show to discuss the Ward Boundary Review with Citizfaction.ca creator Paul Synott. We asked the councillors their thoughts on the marathon three and a half hour discussion at city hall last week that ended in a motion to “note and file” the consultants report, as well as their thoughts on the ward boundary process itself.
They are acutely aware of the popular Citizfaction petition underway and the chances that this may just end up at the OMB and, if the precedents are any indication, a decision imposed upon them by the December 31 deadline. It is our impression that they know this is continuing on and that they want to regain at least a little control of the situation.
Citizfaction has two more days with which to collect signatures on their petition, so if you can lend any support at all (even if it’s simply downloading the form, signing it and returning it) it would be much appreciated!
Councillor Alan Halberstadt admitted to crafting a motion of reconsideration of Dr. Williams ten ward option which will be presented to councillors on July 27, and councillor Bill Marra has expressed support of that option as well. We’ll have to see what happens Monday night, but here’s a hint of what to expect at that discussion…
So kick back and enjoy!
