What would be interesting would be to ask the voters of District 12 (where Hantsport would go in Kings) how they feel about taking on Hantsport. I am sure the vote would go against having the concerns of the town become our concerns. We moved out of town to a more rural area for a reason. Now to find the town that shunned us wants us back is alarming. Oh and to be clear ..you expect us to absorb your dept load when you vote yourself lower taxes.

Hmmmm...it would be awkward for Hantsport to be part of King's since it's name would be Hants port :) Maybe they should change the name too..say..Kingsport On Avon :)

Hantsport has a $1 million/year budget deficit and a clean balnce sheet. If it remains a town, in three years it will have a $3 million debt - and the Province will force it to dissolve. Simple math. There's no tooth fairy. That debt will have to be paid in a special assessment on the residents. Think it's hard to sell a house in town now? Times change. Dinosaurs deny it. Intelligent people suck it up, adapt, and plan for the future. The town charter is a millstone around Hantsport resident's necks and needs to go. Get on with it Council, you are doing the right thing!
