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. Why is New Street’s capacity to move cars being lowered? Why don’t u give tax breaks to people who car pool instead, greedy gov’ts never do anything right, they simply pretend they are taking progressive actions, installing bumps everywhere, what does that achieve???…after you kill the planet, u will be stuck here forever, the penalty for killing a planet is permanent, lifetime sentence, cause reincarnation exists. When you end up on a dead planet Marrianne, you won’t be able to say, you did not receive a warning from mother earth, father light and our future children! You are a lost soul, don’t be fooled by the fact that so many around you are the same, misery loves company, haha.

What's your take?
