We Are Now Finally On The Verge Of Finding Out
A Brief One from Doug Draper
Posted October 22nd, 2018 on Niagara At Large
When retired Niagara Regional Police Services officer and now St. Catharines regional council candidate Peter Gill posted this image on his Facebook page this past spring, Niagara Regional Chair Al Caslin and a majority on his council were already mired in controversy and there was already a strong public desire for change – or as Gill put it, a housecleaning – in the air.
That urge for change has only grown stronger since then, and on this Monday, October 22nd municipal election day, I’ve heard one anecdotal report after another that voter turnout at the polls is much higher than usual.
A high voter turnout, historically, rarely ever spells good news for incumbents in any election, and are usually a sign that people are going to the polls to make change.
Shortly after 8 p.m. this Monday, vote counts across Niagara, tabulated electronically, will begin coming in fast and furious, and we could know the make-up of the next regional council within an hour.
