Given that Monday’s night regular Council meeting was a marathon event, starting at 5:30PM and ending at roughly 12:45 AM, some readers might not have the inclination to spin through about 7 hours of the recording to see what interests them.

It definitely feels like an election is in the air as some interesting momentum followed the two delegations that presented at Council on November 20. We’ve captured below the local transit discussion as well as the Metrolinx Grimsby GO Public Information Centre held on November 21.
The Council Agenda for Monday, November 20 includes the minutes of the November 13 Administration & Finance Committee, November 14 Planning and Development Committee, and November 7 Committee of Adjustment meeting.
As we mentioned in our previous post, it was nearly “standing room only” in the packed Council Chambers for the July 17th meeting. Thankfully Staff anticipated a large turnout so there was a stack of extra chairs on hand for those who didn’t get prime seating.
This advertorial in the recent weekend edition of The Hamilton Spectator certainly caught our eye. Needless to say, it is definitely a subjective view of things but what is surprising is the “selling point” of a GO station in Grimsby in 2020.
We have been hearing it for months, even years that Grimsby will have GO Train service by 2021 and Niagara Falls will see daily service by 2023. Town Council and the Region have been blowing their (train) horn about this ad nauseum.
We often receive commentary and information from concerned residents who share our vision for a Greater Grimsby. The following is a very thought-provoking opinion piece we recently received from a resident and with permission decided to share with our fellow citizens.
