Morrisburg - Aug. 20, 2015: Which brings to light the possibility of an issue with
Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry Liberal candidate Bernadette Clement.
Clement was elected to a third term on Cornwall City Council in 2014,
but threw her hat in the ring for the Federal Liberal nomination a
scant few months later. With fixed election date legislation, it was
very clear there would be a federal election in 2015. At the August
11th council meeting, Clement stated she would go on a leave of
absence as of August 31, but really, it should have been as soon as
the writ was dropped. FULL STORY

Morrisburg - Aug. 20, 2015: For every step forward that the current South Dundas council takes, it takes two back. The last minute deal to secure the Renegade Bass Tournament championship is the most recent backwards step by this council.
At the August 11th council meeting, a last minute agenda item was added, seeking a cash contribution and the waiving of launch fees for the boat ramp in Morrisburg for the Renegade Bass Fishing Tournament. The South Dundas Chamber of Commerce pushed for the waiving of the launch fees in 2014. It was denied FULL STORY

Morrisburg - Aug. 14, 2015: South Dundas council got it right Tuesday night by voting
against a motion to support EDP Renewables plan for 24-36 more wind
turbines in the municipality. The vote was three-to-one against
supporting EDP, with one councillor stepping out of the vote due to a
declared conflict of interest. Critics have stated that South Dundas
has missed out of the promised revenue opportunity from this deal,
good. Sometimes taking a stand is worth more than money.

Morrisburg - Aug. 4, 2015: Since the dawn of the county system in Ontario in the
1800’s, there has been a two-tier governance system to municipalities.
The upper tier, or county, controls certain aspects, the lower tier,
or township/municipality, controls the rest. In the past, I have
questioned the need for having a county level of governance in
Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry when we have six lower-tier
municipalities that duplicate the functions of the county. Perhaps the
better way to approach streamlining municipal governments is to cut
the lower-tier out all together.
