WHY 10 M$ for a library, but none for our HEALTH ?

The city announced the IMAGINE project (Taj Mahal on the lake) will cost 15 M$, with 3 M$ in grants and 2-3 M$ in private donations

So, we will pay 10 M$ from ” loan bylaw, as well as from the city’s reserves and available surpluses”. That means one third (33%) from external sources.

In September 2020, the mayor told us that he expected the project to be funded TWO thirds from external sources

SO, the mayor favors :

  • 10 M$ for IMAGINE (financed at 33%) for a library that we already have and to cover for office space requirements calculations which are no longer valid in 2022 given the remote offices trend

instead of

  • 10 M$, for our share of the soundwall, financed at 75% to protect the HEALTH of one third of the population of Beaconsfield (6,000 residents)

Mr Mayor, WHY NOT PAY THE ANTI NOISE BARRIER from ” loan bylaw, as well as from the city’s reserves and available surpluses”????
