For the almost 900 people who packed two public meetings about First Nation ownership of a short strip of Sauble Beach shoreline, the issue probably comes down to this: Which of the people at the front of the room do you trust?

The meetings were chaired by Town of South Bruce Peninsula (TSBP) mayor John Close, and you could smell election year in the crowd. Close faced pointed questions about notice and timing of the meetings, public access to the proposed agreement, and a perceived rush to make a decision in September before the current council becomes a so-called "lame-duck."
