First off, the next referendum must be with the municipal election in 2014.
The last one cost $66,000 and only 8,000 people voted at a cost to the taxpayer of $8.25 per vote.
No, no, no.
We need to get the current council to allow a list of civic questions to be put on the ballot.
A spring referendum will only draw a handful of voters, whereas the same question on the civic election ballot (in November) will indicate a much broader community response.
This is democracy in action rather than special interest groups stacking the vote and getting upsupported and costly development added to our already crushing tax burden.
