Yesterday I lauded Councillor Philip Brown for his call for the banning of cosmetic pesticides in Charlottetown. I also mentioned that he was the only Councillor to publish his email address on the City of Charlottetown’s website.
Within the hour, I had a note from Bruce Garrity, another City Councillor, noting that he had just had the City publish his email address. I emailed him back and asked for his take on the banning of cosmetic pesticides. Last night Bruce responded.
What’s more, when Bruce’s email address was added to the list [PDF file], so were the email addresses of the Mayor and all Councillors but Clifford Lee, Daniel Redmond and Mitch Tweel.
This isn’t disarming Iraq. But all politics, they say, is local.
There are 10 wards in Charlottetown. There are now two councillors (at least) on the record supporting this ban. I’ll email the rest, and ask them for their positions. Watch this space.
