Q & A with our neighbours
Back in days of yore, you’d get on your best Sunday suit/outfit, and go down to the town hall to hear your local elected Member talk about the state of the country or the province or the town. You might have to hitch up the horse, and drive through snow, but you’d do it.
Today, a few thousand folks can camp out on the phone line, and we can answer perhaps a dozen (sometimes more) of the several dozen questions in the queue during the one hour of a tele-town hall. Our latest dialogue, Thursday February 8th, we hosted just shy of 4,000 folks from Lisgar, Meadowvale and Streetsville.
We talked about seniors, GO Transit, post-secondary tuition, child care, and a host of other things on people’s mind, a few of them straying into the city’s jurisdiction.
If you didn’t get your question asked and answered (and if it is about things to do with the Province), try asking it via e-mail. Click here to send me your question by e-mail. Before you do, however, search this web site for the subject. There is a better-than-even chance your query has been answered.
Those tele-town halls sure beat saddling up that horse and riding into town to crowd into the hall, and hope somebody brought in enough wood to keep the fire going.
