No future looking back - Ernie Checkeris

I can't believe people are convinced de-amalgamation would be better for the communities outside the "old" city of Sudbury.

It sure is a sign the mayor and many councillors have not done the proper job of keeping ratepayers in the outside areas informed about what has been done since amalgamation.

The whole effort is so patently full of politics it smells. Now we have the NDP in the action.

What a joke. On the one hand, I reckon it is logical. After all, there is an provincial election next year and (it is) a good time to fish for votes by making believe they wish to help voters.

It seems to me the politics in our new society are all out of sync with what a democratic system means.  Once elected, politicians forget the common good and must garner votes to get re-elected. 


Truth somehow takes a back seat in the minds of councillors who continue to use a rear view mirror. We must have people in politics who do not run around mini-managing every thing.

Instead they should be business-like as a board of directors and direct the important staff they have on the payroll. (I was going to mention the $100,000.00 staff...but.)

The message must go out that what is good for any part of the City of  Greater Sudbury is good for all of the communities.

Oh yes, the taxes in the "old"  city of Sudbury  went up just like everywhere else.  And I reckon we pay a lot more, so please set that straight. This is not a good argument for "de am."

My Sudbury is a great place to raise a family, but the politcos can't see it through the front window of the future. Back to the past is negative.
