City of Canning residents dissatisfied with response from Government-appointed commissioners over the city’s future

I HAVE again attended a meeting informing residents of the formula of council amalgamations/boundary changes and attended by many dissatisfied/angry residents.

One of the three Government-appointed Commissioners chaired the meeting and all points raised were taken on board with a standard response of “I can only act within the restraints of the law’.

This leaves the City of Canning again with no representation in its desire to stay in its present form, with facts coming from the meeting that rates will rise by between 15-17 per cent and there is no firm commitment to continuing services other than the collection of rubbish.

As the political masters desire, the City will be robbed, cut up and demolished unless somebody has the decency to stand up against this baseless destruction.
