One Thing This Council Has Done Right

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hThe warm, summer-like weather has finally arrived, students have heard the final bell of the year, June is soon to be a memory, and July is on the horizon, and that can only mean one thing...we are four months from the 2014 municipal election.

In recent weeks I've been putting together questions to include in a package to be sent to candidates now that we actually have some candidates.

As I sifted through articles, meeting agendas, and staff reports from this term of council, one thing that our current council has done extremely well became glaringly obvious.

Meaford Residents Earn Their Right to Protect Meaford

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hI have lived in Meaford for nearly a decade, and this community never ceases to amaze me with its wonderfully strange mix of character traits.

Mention Meaford outside of our borders, and it is likely you will hear about a community that always seems to be up in arms about something. Wind turbines, cell towers, waste incinerators, high taxes, higher taxes, amalgamation, de-amalgamation. Indeed, passionate debate is a standard occurrence in this town, a character trait that I have always defended because I strongly believe that a community with engaged residents is a better community.

Mayoral Candidate Approves of Used Fire Truck Purchase

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Editor,  

I want to congratulate the Meaford Staff for endorsing and  Council for agreeing to a realistic stop-gap measure in replacing the ladder fire truck. Kudos to Chief Molloy on his initiative. 

Chief Molloy asked council to purchase a used ladder truck from the Parry Sound Fire Department.

The used 1992 ladder truck has 16,200 kilometres, and it is in excellent condition.  Just $7,500 plus taxes in comparison with a new truck cost of nearly 1 million.

Thanks for thinking of the taxpayer,

Jim McPherson candidate for Mayor
