Letter: Didn’t appreciate being told to keep silent at special council meeting
Letter. Supplied

The following letter to Lord Mayor Gary Zalepa was submitted to The Lake Report for publication.

I am raising my objection to being read the “keep silent act” ie. no talking, no applauding, no display of approval or disapproval,  which was read out by a town representative at the special meeting council at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Centre on Monday, April 24.

It was as though we were a bunch of potential anti-social residents. It appeared that council only wanted an audience of muted observers.
We should have been welcomed to the meeting instead of being given instructions on how to behave – as if we didn’t know any better how to conduct ourselves in public.
