The best thing about Dawn Sloane is that so many people hate her. You wouldn’t believe the expletives, putdowns and rude descriptions that are tossed my way concerning Sloane; they even make me blush---they’re that bad. She must be doing something right.
In truth, Sloane’s biggest fault is she talks too much, which is hardly a crucifiable offence. And all that talking is usually much-informed, even if sometimes she’ll talk both sides of an issue. Lately, she’s been lecturing the rest of council on responsible planning strategies, which probably only further alienates her but, thing is, she’s right. I’m impressed that Sloane had the courage to oppose construction of a memorial to fallen peace officers in the Grand Parade---not because she has anything against fallen peace officers, but rather because she thought the memorial was a rushed affair that didn’t take in the overall context of the Grand Parade.
Sloane initially supported “tax reform,” but as the proposal was rolled out, she had the sense to see it wasn’t the fair doctrine it was sold as. Sloane also has very sensible ideas about parking strategies in the north end, and it looks like the rest of council is going to eventually embrace those ideas. Good on her.
