Party Politics Isn't Serving Us Well - So Vote For The Individual Instead

StephenVance bw 225w 200hI was just 16 when I volunteered to help out on an election campaign for the first time. From my teen years until my mid 30's I volunteered to help out a campaign in every single federal and provincial election that came along, and a few municipal campaigns as well.

While it's no secret that I lean to the left in my political thinking, that doesn't mean that I married myself to one party over those 20 years of regular campaign work.

So Far, So Good For This Council, But the Tough Stuff's Ahead

StephenVance bw 225w 200hAfter taking the hot and hazy month of August off, Meaford's council was back in action on the Meaford Hall stage on Monday.

Does Meaford Hall's Opera House Really Need to be Licenced?

StephenVance bw 225w 200hMeaford Hall's Opera House is now licenced for alcohol consumption, but was it really necessary, and is it really a good idea?

Don't get me wrong, I'm the first to admit I enjoy a good, stiff drink, but in the seats of the opera house? I've been to many plays, movies, and concerts at Meaford Hall, and though a drinker I may be, I have never felt the need to have a beverage with me at my seat during a production.
