So Why Ward 2 & 8 are Combined

 

In March the PEG (Voting Population) numbers were released by the various municipalities. Each election year they are reviewed for proper distribution within each municipality and the region of Peel. The Board of Trustees requested from the Government to add a 13th Trustee to help balance the numbers. Unfortunately, the Liberal government ignored our request. Don Stephens (Ward 2 Trustee) and I fought strongly against merging the two Wards and moving the extra Ward to Brampton. As the numbers below illustrate, this involved moving the problem from Brampton down to Mississauga, and having to many people represented by one trustee.

One of my key objections to the merger of Ward 2 and Ward 8 is based on the issue of declining enrollment, which will result in the next term,  2  or 3 communities school being consolidated. This is a large and complex task for just one trustee. However, the Board voted in favour of the motion for consolidation of Wards 2 and 8 which I must support.
