LETTER: Windsor’s push for amalgamation about power


I think it’s time for Windsor town council to grow up, and stop acting like if you do not play by my rules, then I am taking my bat and ball and going home.

Feel passionate about something you read or saw in the Journal? Concerned about a decision of council? Why not get it off your chest and write a letter to the editor.

I am elated that Windsor has decided to cut ties with West Hants. The only reason I can think for their decision is that West Hants council has possibly seen their hidden agenda of dominance for power. Just think for a minute. The push for amalgamation falls in line with what took place in Halifax.

The City of Halifax holds all the power over the areas that were forced into what is now known as HRM. I believe this is what Windsor has in mind. Where the town is central, they would have the right to use the taxes to beautify and promote the town, and what funds might be leftover may or may not go to West Hants residents.

As for Windsor council stating West Hants residents are using their resources and not paying for them, that is wrong! Using the pool and anything else has a fee for admission. What will be next? Will they complain about us using their streets as we spend our hard-earned dollars at the stores in town? If we did not patronize these stores then Windsor would become a ghost town. That's food for thought.

If Coun. Scott Geddes has no interest in any shape or form of dealing with West Hants council, then I take that as a suggestion that he has no interest in dealing with the residents of West Hants who voted for our council members. I would suggest that we proud residents of West Hants boycott his business.

As for a new arena, I hope West Hants goes it alone and builds an arena that the residents can be proud of.
