At the recent Woodford meeting organized by the Chamber of Commerce (very well done), some candidates railed against the new Park By-Law as being ‘unnecessary’ to ‘fascist’. Core issues were ‘parks closed for six months’ and ‘trespassers could be prosecuted’.
I don’t think we should be worried about this by-law, as there is effectively no change from the way things have been, save for clarifications and specifics. It is also similar to that of municipalities adjacent to us. It does outline abuses that the Municipality of Meaford cannot entertain. Most Meafordites would agree to banning illegal activities and public urination (I believe for the first time here), and fish guts in receptacles and not on picnic tables.
