Yes, I think I'll submit for conversion of the streets in Ward 2. Nothing to lose.

RE: Ancaster. I spoke to someone who generally supports Lloyd Ferguson and lives in his ward. In his opinion, Lloyd Ferguson is "business-friendly" (which is good). But he was really pissed about Ferguson's transit motion. Not only does it affect his kids' ability to use transit and ties the parents into more driving, but it's also a business-UNFRIENDLY vote. There's an industrial park in Ancaster that has very bad or NO bus service. The lack of bus service makes it more difficult for the businesses there to find qualified employees because everyone has to own a car to get there.

The bottom line is that we need progressive candidates in all wards -- those who will consider all aspects of different ideas and how just saying "no" to all tax increases (no matter how small) is false economy.
