The power neil vincent took from the People, returns to the People Monday night. That is if at least one Representative stands up for what is Right and upholds 224 of the Municipal Act. Disgraced former reeve neil vincent’s regime failed horribly to hold any senior staff to account, making them criminals in the eyes of many.
If council stands up to the Public Works Department it should be visible Tuesday morning as the sidewalks and trails will be cleared. This will connect our Community, free hundreds from virtual house in the winter, allow a Community Watch program to patrol Wingham, pedestrians will no longer have to walk in traffic to get around Wingham, Bristol Terrace residents won’t have to cross the highway just to get up-town, the BIA could have a best decorated home contest, People could walk through Cruikshank Park to enjoy the few lights remaining, etc. etc. etc.
Tune in or attend Monday night as council will be setting the tone for the next 4 years. You never know, they may just tell the Public to shovel it themselves because the sidewalk guy is too busy driving past blocked sidewalks to clear them.
