It's that time of year again. The time where many municipal councillors travel to one location to share experiences, pass along advice and get an opportunity to speak one on one with provincial government ministers.
There are many different workshops scheduled for this year in Ottawa that spans over a 3 day period. Some of the topics will include new design and planning for today's housing needs, increasing participation in municipal issues, cannabis legislation & impacts on municipal / regional government.
Of course one of the main items I personally look forward to is our one on one meeting with provincial government ministers. This is where we get a chance to speak with them directly about important issues in Milton. More schools, better infrastructure funding, fixing then downloading of health services on to Halton Region. Chair Gary Carr and many if not all of the Halton area councillors will go from meeting to meeting and present to them OUR solutions.
No guarantees about what we get, if anything during these meetings but we still state our case and why we need what we need.
If you could sit down with one provincial government minister, who would it be and what questions would you ask? Let me know either in the comments here or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
