4.  I believe one of the core responsibilities for any democracy is active discussion. To be able to make informed decisions for the greater good of the constituents you must be prepared. I would like to hear from current council regarding their thoughts and if the believe they have ample time to digest information. Personally I would prefer more time, but that’s just me.

5.  The answer to this one is YES! Amherstburg prides itself in being steeped in a rich history. We need to play to our strengths! Its a sad day when we see historical buildings knocked down to make room for high priced condos.  I understand costs to upkeep buildings that are sitting empty or falling apart may be high, but we have to do something! I will work very closely with our Heritage Committee to bring history alive in Amherstburg!
