Ward 2 candidate, David Poluck issued this statement to Saultonline.com as a result of the town hall meeting held by the local fire fighters union Sunday night
“It is discouraging when people don’t respond and they take the action anyway. To me it shows a real lack of understanding of what the fire service is and how important it is,”
I was in attendance at last nights town hall meeting to listen to the information and gain a better understanding of the current state of affairs with our fire services.
I am now left with more questions unanswered than answered.
Are cuts at the sake of public and firefighter safety?
Is it not responsible for council to complete a comprehensive risk assessment?
Don’t we owe it to ourselves to seek all available information and make an informed decision?
I like other ratepayers seek answers. I as a ratepayer expect all due diligence.
“For the want of a nail the shoe was lost,
For the want of a shoe the horse was lost,
For the want of a horse the rider was lost,
For the want of a rider the battle was lost,
For the want of a battle the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of a horseshoe-nail.”-Benjamin Franklin
I am add my voice to the conversation and ask for councilors to take action and pause, in order to seek further information that can be gained from a comprehensive risk assessment.
