Lost farmland, the housing crunch and the future

With Canada’s population growing by about 300,000 people per year, and new housing starts of about 200,000 to 250,000 homes per year, one would think that things would even out somewhere in the mix.

It’s time to review the Sunshine List

Recently, the Ontario government published the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act list for 2021.

Sense of community versus sense of responsibility

While a three-hour meeting about a municipal drain might not be your cup of tea at first glance, it really is an education.
