All these benefits ,bonus's to our mayor & council on the backs of tax payers right now struggling through a pandemic.
Leduc & Kirwin sit on the seniors advisory board and these comments, suggestions ask us why.
Taking from Peter to pay Paul.?
Headlines should be how our greater city is helping to lessen the burden right now not fill their pockets.

Wow what a gang to speak like this article reflects amid a pandemic & hardships many tax payers endured ,while paying these wages, then being told another 4.5% tax hike.
A real shame this whole situation is as last year while covid was rampant this same council gave themselves pay raises. Not a big deal Kirwin states, ask a senior trying to stay in their home ,ask a young family trying to feed themselves, ask another who lost their job. Why is Leduc only asking now for a review, because it was just leaked to the public, why not sooner amid the hardship tax payers are facing at this time.?

Why was an interview not granted, he is paid by tax payers dollars, don't bite the hand that feeds you.? Where was our mayor during these covid times.?
Shame on him, shame on the city & council to find a 4.5 % tax hike off the backs of those who just weathered a pandemic, seniors who do not get raises enough to pay for the costs & working poor who do not get 60% raises either.
The KED and gambling is not a necessity, seniors homes, heat hydro food on table are.

Issues on both sides but eye care such an important factor to life and the optometrists are using patients as a pawn,go between. Hearing so many horror stories of blindness if an appt. cannot be scheduled soon. Medical care if doctor & nurses walk out it's only for a days protest but not all is shut down during that time frame. Police are not allowed to strike. Normally they advertise be sure to see your optometrist it is important for eye care, guess it's not that important any more.!

Veterans fought for All Canadians. Why wait until now to have the homeless removed.? Is there not enough space to hold Remembrance Day celebrations safely, GSPS & Bylaw will be in attendance.? A terrible situation this has become & the blame I think starts at TDS. How long has this situation been out there.?

Sudtor..So very right you are. I live beside a housing project the city runs and some tenants have been a nightmare to others & the neighbors. This building was built to house seniors but when the city amalgamated they turned it to a low rental housing unit. Most tenants have their own issues, are nice & we have employed them with small jobs helping us out, invite them for xmas dinner & more. But then there are the tenants placed here addicted to hard drugs, alcohol & this is where the issues are. The yelling banging,filth & the damage to this building is high that we the tax payer must pay. Mental health issues are high with some existing tenants living like this repeatedly. All councilors , the mayor, housing are quite aware , so with police presence , ambulance how often. Security needs to be there 24/7. The city likes to down play things, but I just about daily see the problems next door.
