You’re probably asking yourself with all these vacancies, why is the boundary babble still going on?  You’d be right.  Not only is it still going on, council is hallucinating the boundary adjustment is a done deal.

The Expositor reported yesterday that:  “Brantford is considering extending current ward boundaries to encompass Brant County land due to become part of the city under a boundary adjustment deal set to come into effect Jan. 1, 2017.”

Excuse us, but since when is the land “due to become part of the city”?  The boundary adjustment is a PROPOSAL therefore nothing is “due” to happen.  Right now, nothing is happening because the Ontario government has serious issues with the proposal.  Namely,

  • the use of funds collected through development charges and building fee permits;
  • the lack of consultation with Six Nations.  And, let’s not forget,
  • “concerns that speculative investments pose a risk of ‘leapfrog’ development in areas beyond the Greenbelt, such as Simcoe and Brant Counties.” (Crombie Report, Executive Summary)
