In September, community leaders from across Sackville-Preston-Chezzetcook were honoured by Darrell Samson for their work towards diversity & inclusion, reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, youth, the environment, seniors, and veterans. Each was presented with a limited edition #Canada150 pin, which contains a piece of Parliament’s West Block roof.
Marni Tuttle of #WindsorJunction was acknowledged for her involvement with the LWF Ratepayers Association and the Windsor Junction Community Centre. The community benefits so much from Marni’s direction and her work on providing grants through the LWFRA is critically important, so thank you Marni for your contribution to your community.
Thank you to The Laker for being our partner in spreading the word about how LWF Ratepayers make our community a better place.
In July, 2017 HRM recommended an adjustment to the LWF Area Rate without consultation with the community. With less than 24 hours notice our communities created a tremendous response to request that HRM delay the motion until community consultation had been undertaken.
The motion was not delayed and HRM created a new level of oversight unique to our community’s area rate.
Please find below the official response made before the motion.
