Here is a comparison, citizens of Digby: 2011 census, for Morden, Manitoba. Served by Mayor and 6 councillors. Population 7,812 and growing! "Councillors Danny Harvieux and Brian Manzer both spoke in favour of the status quo because they value the breadth of opinion and perspectives." How about, ask the public what they think once in a while! “With a small council, you can get tunnel vision pretty quick,” said Manzer. Really, than maybe it's time to "exit stage right!" Manzer was also worried that a small council would complain about being overworked and decide they need a raise, cancelling out any possible savings. “It’s happened other places,” he said. Seriously people, they chose the path for public service. Don't let "other places" dictate how your money is spent when it comes to the politics. Don't let them play you! They don't need these numbers on council, period! The City of Morden is proof!
