Sables-Spanish Rivers man writes petition for ward

A petition has been launched by a Sables-Spanish Rivers Township man to have the municipality form ward to ensure equal representation.

Stewart Fowler says it would be more democratic since many smaller areas like Webbwood are not being heard.

He says there are some key issues that must be addressed, such as road maintenance and property standards.

Fowler says he has spoken to Algoma-Manitoulin MPP Mike Mantha about the process and a petition is the perfect place to start.

He adds he will also be contacting the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and councillors in municipalities where there are ward to find out how they work.

The township council, made up of a mayor and six councillors, is currently elected at large.

Fowler says he will appear before council with the petition in the near future.
