The office of Burlington MPP Jane McKenna has put together an online survey asking for feedback from local residents regarding the Province’s Regional Government Review.

The questions revolve around what you would like to see happen as a result of the review; and how the Province can improve our local municipal government and across Halton Region.

The survey, which will be available until May 31, states the feedback received will be shared with Premier Doug Ford and the advisory board that is conducting the Regional Government Review, and MPP McKenna will also present a summary of the results from the survey in the Ontario Legislature.

MY TAKE:

We don’t know where the Province’s Regional Government Review, so it’s important that Burlington residents are proactive in sharing their views, feedback and where they stand with the Province. I invite the public to get involved and engage with this opportunity by reaching out to your local MPP, protecting what you love and value about the current local and regional structure, and ensuring your voice is heard.

    With the right choice of councillors, the status quo is preferred. There is no “One size fits all”. We were a great little place until the politicians want to get innovative. For Example, Rick Goldring’s crew did tremendous damage to the kind of community we want to be. Politicians, BUTT OUT!

    We completed this survey as well as the one available from the Provincial government itself. Both are pretty simplistic but do at least provide an opportunity to clearly state we are happy with the way things are. Can we count on Ms. McKenna’s support – her track record would seem to say no!

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
