The chemical tanks that are being built on our waterfront are a glaring example of politicians not working together. This has to stop. Our elected officials were asleep at the switch.
It’s very encouraging to see some “young fresh faces” coming forward to put their names on the ballot for the municipal election. We need to engage and support more young people to get involved. They bring with them a real passion and desire for success, something that was obviously lacking with the present Council.
Resignations, huge pay-offs, criminal charges, rising taxes, secret meetings, 17 stores empty on Montreal Rd., and now the chemical tanks. If all this wasn’t bad enough, the city administration is not even listening to this Council.
Cornwall needs a new direction in a big way. The election can’t come soon enough.
