Does Peterborouogh have an affordable housing crisis? It seems to this writer that we need to stop the municipality from purchasing or building residences and start subsidizing landlords. Building says the cycle of dependency will never get better and we need to have these forever. Subsidizing says as those in need work their way back into society we will subsidize less and less. It will also put the burden of management and maintenance where it belongs, on the landlords not the City or Province.
Stop the Cycle of Dependency and start the Path to Independence! Our opinion.

Important Issues

Peterborough Mayor claims political discussion is polarized - 2018-01-09, PTBO
The following Councilors voted (6 to 5) to sell Peterborough Electric Services to Ontario Hydro: Darrell Bennett, Dan McWilliams, Andrew Beamer, Henry Clarke, Lesley Parnell and Dave Haacke. This same group also voted against the wishes of the people and voted to continue the Parkway (6 to 5). Major projects should be held till Municipal election time so all can have their input.
If you don't believe in coincidence, the two projects each approach the hundred million dollar range. Selling one "could" pay for building the other. The airport "could" eat up another three million taxpayer dollars in 2018,
Polarization is expensive, when the ones holding the purse are polarized. This could be one of the reasons why new industry can't be attracted here. Where are the competitive quotes for services we were told about?
