So I wrote an email to councilors, the mayor and the city clerk.
Good Morning Mr. Mayor, Councilors and Mdme Clerk,
My name is Cora Shaw and I am a board member of the Alberta Avenue; also the Development Chair for the same board. I am also on the EFCL Planning and Development Committee, area G.
I have a number of concerns regarding this development however the one thing that needs to be addressed is the fact that the public hearing is also on election day, May 2nd. The community has asked that I speak on this however I am working as a poll clerk on that day. So I am unavailable to speak as I need to be at my poll from 6:30 am until the count is finished at the end of the day which will be after 7:30 pm when the poll closes.
I am sending a delegate Gérard Forget to speak on the postponement of the hearing.
I am respectfully asking that the Public Hearing be moved to another day so that I can exercise my rights as a citizen in this democratic process.
This was the answer that I received for the city clerk:
Thank you for your correspondence and wish to advise that if you wish to formally make a request to postpone this Bylaw we will require an email advising to the date and time you wish to postpone to. I copy teh email sent.
Please also note that as this Bylaw is not scheduled to be heard until 2 pm therefore Council will not make a decision prior to that time and we highly recommend that you attend/or someone attend to speak on your behalf to address your request if Council has any questions.
Trusting you find everything in order and if you require any additional information please feel free to contact me.
