Budget Night: Let's Get Ready to Rumble!?

At tonight's City Council meeting, the floor is opened up for the first time to public delegations about the  budget. Sadly, I won't be able to be there because of a prior commitment, but I expect there will be some sharp words from many speaking, especially the many who are speaking on behalf of the disadvantaged.
If you want to be a spectator, be at City Hall by 7 pm. Or if you can't be there, you watch the whole thing live on Rogers TV.
In the meantime, here's the list of tonight's delegate:
  • Anastasia Ziprick on behalf of the Guelph Jazz Festival
  • Sandy Ferguson-Escott on behalf of the Guelph-Non Profit Housing Committee
  • Terry O’Connor on behalf of the Income Security Action Group for Poverty Task Force
  • Erinn White on behalf of the Guelph & District Labour Council
  • Ben Bennett
  • Barb McPhee on behalf of Community Voices
  • Konnie Peet, Executive Director of the Guelph Community Health Centre on behalf of the Wellington-Guelph Drug Strategy Committee
  • Andrew Seagram on behalf of the Guelph Wellington Task Force for Poverty Elimination
  • Colin Hunter on behalf of the Guelph Professional Firefighters Association
  • Paul Clarkson
  • Paul Reeve, Chair of the Accessibility Advisory Committee
  • Peter Mac Neill on behalf of the Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 1189
  • Jacqueline Dixon
