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

StephenVance bw 225w 200hHer party weathered a storm of scandals and suspected scandals for months, they endured the shadow of a less than beloved former Premier, and yet in a somewhat stunning turn of events, Kathleen Wynne becomes Ontario's first elected female Premier, and her Liberal party will form a majority government, ending a tumultuous period of minority government bickering and strategic manoeuvring.
