Where Are Promised Public Consultations On Policing?

The January 23, 2023 recommendation to direct the CAO to exercise the renewal clause is contrary to the December 5, 2022 recommendation, and subsequent council motion, to extend the deadline to renew to March 31, 2023 so public consultations could be held.

In 2019, I wrote if we, like Orangeville, were to expect an accumulated savings of $58 million by 2036 by switching to OPP, I would have no objections. However, since we expect to save $9.65 million by 2036 by switching to Windsor, I have to question the decision and its impact on the town’s financial position for the next 2 decades.
