In the run up to this years municipal elections, the costs of delivering services and who should pay for their provision, is getting some welcome attention. At the same time, the relationship of Owen Sound and its municipal neighbors is being examined by voters.

Owen Sound, like many other communities, has seen expanded development outside its municipal boundaries. This has occurred for a variety of reasons related to lifestyle, being a property tax refugee; or in the case of business, more operating room.

On Aug.9th, the Osprey community centre was filled with people wanting to become more informed on the plan to close Simcoe County Road 91 and the negative impact this would have for everyone on both sides of the closure.

My phone did not quit ringing for days, both before and after the meeting and I am still getting calls every day, a week after the fact.

We will be going to the polls on Monday October 27, to elect a mayor and councilors for the next four years.

We can choose to continue with our present representatives or we can choose new representatives and encourage new methods and priorities in how our public policy is conducted.

In order to accomplish this we will need to actively encourage new people to contest the election, and provide lots of opportunity for candidates to detail their policies through a number of public debates. We owe it to the people standing for office to participate and ask questions wherever we can.

On Friday August 1st a relatively short letter-to-the-editor appeared in the Owen Sound Sun-Times, entitled "Ontario making good progress with wind energy." In this letter, Brandy Giannetta, the Ontario Regional Director of CANWEA (Canadian Wind Energy Association ) quotes the IESO (Independent Systems Operator of Ontario) as follows: "...wind energy as an effective tool in managing the province's electricity system."
