A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.

  1. Sounds like a fun day. As a pedestrian I would appreciate that cyclists are informed that they are to be equipped with a bell (I believe this is provincial law) and that as a courtesy they are expected to use it when overtaking traffic, whether on foot or on wheels. Somewhere along the way, this driving habit has been lost.

What's your take?
