- 2015 Federal Election
A ward system would provide some new councillors
Editor: Re: “Long list of Township concerns,” (The Times, May 22). One desperate change we need is to move to a ward system, just like the federal and provincial elections.
The “at large” system we have now favours re-election of incumbents, as most residents do not know which way any councillor voted on any particular policy. Under a ward system, Fort Langley, Willoughby, Brookswood/Fernridge and Aldergrove ridings would be getting new councillors in November for sure. This would fix most, if not all, of Ann-Michelle de Ruis’ concerns.
