All things Meaford:
Let me start by saying that my wife, children and I moved to the Meaford area some 24 years ago. This is a beautiful area and a pleasant and at times exciting rural community where we have enjoyed raising our children - we have never second-guessed that decision.
However, all things municipal began to be distasteful for me soon after amalgamation. My own suggestion for a new name (The Town of the Big Head) was flatly rejected by the council. I still feel the TBH would tie in well with the TBM and has excellent branding possibilities. Since then I have attempted to voice my concerns (and hopefully not in a nasty or spiteful way) about other issues. But most attempts at discussion have fallen onto what seems to be deaf ears.
