agenda", will be able to draw on his wealth of experience as former Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, to show how current city mismanagement of taxpayers' resources have negatively impacted all residents, but especially those in the rural areas.

He will describe how the rural-resident component of the "new city" is leading the fight to restore democracy and sound fiscal management to our municipal government and why the suburban areas of the city are also keen to join in the battle.

Other Rural Council business:

The evening promises to be both entertaining and informative, covering updates on a wide range of Rural Council activities, discussion of timely budget issues / taxation concerns and exploring solutions to the, city-created, democratic deficit crisis affecting us all.

Rural councillors Eli El-Chantiri, Glenn Brooks, Doug Thompson and Rob Jellett have been invited to the meeting.

Mark your calendar, to attend!
