Responses from Mayoral Candidates to Questions from the Ratepayers

The following three questions were sent by e-mail twice to all mayoral candidates. The text of the e-mail and the questions are reproduced below. Click here for the candidates’ responses.

Dear Candidate for Mayor, please answer the 3 questions below by October 2, 2018 to this e-mail address. The questions and your answers will be posted to our web site after October 2nd and e-mailed to our community e mail list of roughly 450 individuals.
Thank you in advance and good luck in your campaign.

1. The Mayor is only one vote. You need 7 other votes to agree with you. Other than BRT, what one issue is your priority for getting 7 other members of Council to agree with you and why?

2. Last Council overruled the Minister of Municipal Affairs who said London could restrict secondary dwelling units from the Near Campus Area. Will you support a motion to reconsider Council’s decision?

3. The Medway Valley Heritage Forest Environmentally Significant Area is a part of our community. What have you done that would give us an idea of how you would deal with issues affecting the Medway and other environmentally significant areas in London?

New Aurelia House Opens

The Sisters of the Precious Blood Monastery have opened their new Aurelia House.

From Sister Linda and all of the Sisters in London:

In order to share with you as soon as possible, we have put together a slideshow of the highlights of the opening from last weekend. Enjoy this little photo story (about 6 minutes long).

Catch Basins

Remember to keep the catch basin near your home clear of leaves and other debris. By doing so, you reduce the risk of street and other flooding.


Keep your car and garage doors locked. One of those who has their car riffled through wanted to remind neighbours that garage door openers are often targeted – you may want to consider keeping them indoors overnight.
