Impact Your World
City of Brampton & its (often) questionable policies.
Brampton – Ontario – Canada 2013 Brampton “biggest” block party or so at least was the claim by all today, including the Mayor of the city. But the attendance was not more than two hundred people including kids, as there was a lot of entertainment for them. This must be noted here that our city of Brampton does have a population of some 523,911 people (as per official records), bravo city of Brampton.
As no proper announcements were made in advance to promote this event so all diverse communities of Brampton could get a chance to integrate (even the local ethnic media had no proper invitation). But this is the typical game of Brampton city style politics to further explain it is “divide and conquer”. But guess we all have to wait till next municipal elections to see if some worthwhile candidates come and try and change the face of the aging mostly (old school) city council which seems to be totally disconnected with the grassroots and to crown it all our city hall staff also is mostly imported and majority lives outside this thickly populated municipality, but this is the way the current city council wants. But when any media person questions them they get blocked out from all social networking sites no one other but the Mayor of the city herself has done this. But God bless Canada the greatest country in this world which allows us to speak our minds at all levels.
No one ever claimed that life was perfect but there is always room for improvement and we all must hope for a better future. And trust me we as a team of day to day hardworking Brampton families are very optimistic. And we all know in the hearts of our hearts that we deserve better and will get what we deserve at the right time(sooner or later)....Amen.
