Linda Mosher marches to her own drummer---sometimes directly into battle, sometimes right off the cliff. Like Dawn Sloane, Mosher has a large personality that sometimes annoys people and, as with Sloane, that’s beginning to score her points in the report card department.

Mosher made a principled stand on the “tax reform” issue and resigned from the Tax Reform Committee because she felt sense was being left to the wayside, and then she spoke and voted against the proposal at full council. On this issue, she completely got it---she understood the whys and wherefores, and the long-term implications.

From time to time, Mosher pumps out various suggestions, seemingly at random. Some of them are worthy (her motion to have all committee appointments made in public, for instance), some have merit but she neglects to set the political groundwork ahead of time (banning soft drink sales from rec centres) and others are just plain weird (insisting that people be allowed to use blue bags for leaves). Still, never a dull moment from Mosher.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
