Important Issues

Peterborough Mayor claims political discussion is polarized - 2018-01-09, PTBO
The following Councilors voted (6 to 5) to sell Peterborough Electric Services to Ontario Hydro: Darrell Bennett, Dan McWilliams, Andrew Beamer, Henry Clarke, Lesley Parnell and Dave Haacke. This same group also voted against the wishes of the people and voted to continue the Parkway (6 to 5). Major projects should be held till Municipal election time so all can have their input.
If you don't believe in coincidence, the two projects each approach the hundred million dollar range. Selling one "could" pay for building the other. The airport "could" eat up another three million taxpayer dollars in 2018,
Polarization is expensive, when the ones holding the purse are polarized. This could be one of the reasons why new industry can't be attracted here. Where are the competitive quotes for services we were told about?
