If City Councillors aren't reading the feedback in articles like this one, and taking it to heart, they deserve everything they get in the future.
The can throw all the snide remarks and dismissals they wish at local bloggers but the fact remains there is a significant portion of City taxpayers who are quite simply fed up.
I don't know who, if anyone, advises Councillor Valentinis politically, but they should all have their heads examined.
Coun. Fulvio Valentinis, an Enwin board member, defended the board's decision to give the $4-million dividend, noting the money is going back to the local taxpayer.
"Shifting from one pocket to another, I guess that argument that can be made," he said. "If you didn't do this, well that's another one per cent increase on (municipal) taxes. It's a decision the (Enwin) board made."
That's one statement that will haunt the Councilor for a long time to come.
