Please sign this petition if you oppose the use of fluoride in the water supply of Greater Sudbury.
My main focus started with Transit Buses in the outskirts of down town Sudbury, As I looked more into the issues there's things wrong with every part of the city.
In 1999 Sudbury, Became the GREATER CITY OF SUDBURY.
So you would think if we are The GREATER CITY OF SUDBURY all town's would be treated the same. Nope! ALL out skirt town buses run on different times then down town Sudbury buses, why is that if were all one city now?
IN spring 2008 the City decided to make one later bus for the outskirts to 12:30. All regular buses stayed the same.
What about the people who work early in the morning? sometimes their late because of traffic or of the roads, maybe we should have earlier buses to.
All of ONTARIO, Sudbury is the only one to have the new transit system...WHY, why didn't they take the money they used from the tax payers to improve the system, with more frequent, and longer bus times, lasting though out the day, (morning to night) and providing a larger range of services, example (whitefish, dowling), Including Sundays and holidays.
Did you know must stores/ restaurants are still open on SUNDAYS/ Holidays..... How are they sappose to get to work....
With the new system, the transfers don't give us much time, when were traveling on the out skirt buses, especially from Caperol, by the time you get to Val Caron, your transfer is expired, and then the drivers give you a hassle and YOU shouldn't have to pay more money, YOUR transfer should be good like everyone else's.
Sudbury is also one of the cities in Ontario to shut their Transit early. North Bay is smaller than us and their buses all run till 2:00am.
People need to work, they have personal lives to be meet with, to live a "normal" life.... what if they work 'til 11:00 and have no way home because some of the outskirt buses stop at 9:00 and so on. Is the city excepting people not to work?
Maybe this would help people get off Welfare, if there was more options or services.
Maybe there could be less accidents?
There are many elderly people who retire in the outskirts, but have no way to get around, and on pension, the can't afford to take a taxi everywhere.
Also Most buses are extremely packed....there's an overage on the college students, there's not enough places for them to live.... YOU think there's enough seats too? there's like what 30 seats on a bus, plus standing? and then people getting hurt because the driver slams on the breaks, and puff the people go flying.
Two of the four candidates running for School Committee are proposing reactionary schemes to manage L-S.
Their suggestions are entirely contrary to the spirit of L-S, and their election might very well have a dramatic negative impact on the day to day management life at our school.
One of these candidate is Douglas Zingale, who believes, "Urgency is not being demonstrated and needs to be demonstrated." In his view, "Specific actions should be taken now including making sure the people responsible for not bringing this to people’s attention are removed from the decision making at the school.""
In other words, Douglas Zingale is running for school committee with preconcieved notions of who should be fired. This is his view despite the amazing job done by the L-S faculty on January 19th and the fact that there is a committee already established to look into the tragedy to see if anyone SHOULD be held responsible.
The second candidate, Kevin Matthews "said there is a lack of accountability at L-S, some of which stems from the school committee giving Superintendent/Principal John Ritchie a rubber stamp for many policies" (Sudbury Town Crier March 15th). He went on to say that he is "also for increasing measures at L-S. There’s a lot of technology we can use." According to the Town Crier, "His suggestions include smart cards to give students access to the building and installing video cameras throughout the campus"
The Town Crier also quoted Matthews as saying, "These are procedures that are very common on a college campus. I don’t see any reason why we can’t implement them at L-S."
To summarize, Matthews is showing great opposition to our amazing superintendent Dr Ritchie's policies in running the school and wants to introduce "smart cards" and video cameras in L-S. He is the candidate advocating the most dramatic changes despite the fact that he is the one candidate who has not had a child who has been in Lincoln-Sudbury RHS yet.
The two other candidates are Radha Gargeya and Jack Ryan, both of whom have pledged to respect the unique culture of Lincoln Sudbury.
