Early in September, the Mississippi Mills chapter of the Council of Canadians sent a survey questionnaire to the 20 candidates running for office in the forthcoming (Oct.22) municipal election.

The questions were thoughtful in their content and included such areas of interest as commercial and residential development, Community Official Plan, municipal industrial base, finance, taxes, citizen participation and the current disunity in Mississippi Mills.

The hope was that candidate answers to these points would provide the residents of our municipality the information required to cast a discerning vote.  As many of us are
aware, all-candidates meetings are very often partisan events that do not provide helpful data.
