While we wait for the moment when when one Liberal or another is anointed King of The Hill, perhaps we should also take time to ask what difference this will make to our town.
Municipal government does after all fall within the realm of Provincial control, as do many of the things with a decidedly local impact - building codes, environmental regulations, transit funding and policy, social programs. Circuses.
Each of these has a direct effect on how our cities are managed, and how our growing population will be serviced and supported. In some respects these are the areas of Provincial control that hit closest to home.
So dear readers, aside from the endless refrain of "I don't wanna pay taxes!", what real and lasting changes would like to see our new Leader embrace on the municipal level?
