Why do you love Westboro?

26 10 2008

Ken Gray, the city editorial page editor and a member of the Citizen’s editorial board, was the guest speaker at our AGM. (You can listen his talk in a podcast posted here … scroll down to “Whither Westboro”.) At one point he asked people in the audience to share what they loved most about living in Westboro. It was interesting to hear the answers: trees, friendly faces, walkability, green space… 

Tell us, why do you love Westboro? What drew you here? What keeps you here? Post your answers in the comments of this post. We’d love to hear what you think.

I moved to Westboro two years ago because I can walk or bike to shopping/cafés, I am close to the Transitway, I am close to downtown and I found a great place to live.

Could you please tell the names of the members of the O.M.B., what are there credentials. Are they elected. Where do they live,and why they have so much power .

Rather than give you my view of the OMB I have given you a link to the Ont Gov’t website that gives you some understanding – http://www.mah.gov.on.ca/Page1755.aspx – also try this from Wikepedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontario_Municipal_Board.

The names are not secret but can be found on the OMB website included in their annual statements.
