The old boys club is old news. Let's get some fresh blood.
There's a serious age gap on our council. It's full of life-long politicians who have been saying and doing the same thing for more than 20 years. It's time to inject some youth into our system and get a fresh perspective on the issues in our city.
Who did what now?
It's the future now, finding out what's happening in our city shouldn't be this difficult.
Learning anything through the website is like pulling teeth. We pay the highest taxes in Durham and it's next to impossible to find out why. Council has already admitted they failed to uphold the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act. The auditor general was fired and his office shut down, so we don't even know if the deals we are making are good deals. We need that position back, we need the FOI process overhauled, and we need our website to be modernized and easier to navigate.
The job should never end.
The revitalization of Oshawa's downtown core implies that it was not vital, and one day will be. But then what?
It's not that we haven't been doing a good job. It's that the focus seems to end after an election cycle. The prevailing question always seems to be "What can we do before the next election?". There is a certain lack of foresight. My questions are more like "What will Oshawa be in 10 years? In 20 years? How do we get there from here?"
