    It would be preferable if the 10 candidate’s held an “all candidates” debate – so the Ward 6 residents can make an informed choice at the ballot box – rather than devolving into a “popularity” contest.

    It’s time for difficult choices and substantive topics such as (a) spending, (b) integrity, (c) out of control growth, (c) empty buses, (d) air traffic noise (e) congestion (f) red-tape etc. readily come to mind.

    Don’t agree on some of the topic Johnny brings up, like, we need more busses b/c a lot of youth can’t afford your fancy cars, but agree someone should hold a debate for Ward 6. Too many people pushing the same agenda or making the flaky ‘lower taxes’ promises. We need new thinking, not old people ideas.

    Jenni, you are an engaged resident – that’s good. BTW, “flaky” lower taxes have been achieved historically by governments simply spending less – mathematically.

    About 33% of Oakville voters – got the Council they elected – apparently 67% didn’t.

    Since 2006, Council increased spending over 200% (i.e. 195 million to over $400 million) – that’s mathematics. Taxes make up the majority of that spending, as spending increases, taxes increase – that is mathematics.

    Oakville will never have lower taxes with current Council – it’s mathematics – not politics, not old ideas, not new ideas. When Oakville voters decide to throw out current Council (like in Alberta)- they will also get a one-way ticket home on those empty buses.

    Let’s let Ward 6 residents decide.
