Electoral Reform

Rules Change

2


1. Maximum two terms in office.
Itís unfortunate to have councillors holding office for almost
3 decades.

2. No election campaigning for Mayors, Councillors and
Trustees currently in office.

Four years in office is long enough to become known to
voters.

3. Candidates should be allowed and encouraged to begin
their campaigns as early as the day following an election.

Last minute candidates cause damage rather than help the
democratic process.

4. Agreeing to lower salaries should be allowed and used
as a strategy.

It is unacceptable that mayors and councillors be paid
100,000 to more than 200,000 dollars when the poverty line
is around $20,000.

5. Proportional Presentation should be adopted.
Presenting more than 100.000 residents with number of votes less
than 7% of them is not democratic.

6. Permanent residents should be allowed to vote.
Living, working and paying taxes in our city and not being
allowed to vote is discrimination.
