The provincial government is threatening to amalgamate Oakville with Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills. Other potential unilaterally imposed actions include changes to our governance structure including council size, service delivery and more. We already have strong, effective representation and efficient services in the Town of Oakville. We also already have an established system to implement changes to increase efficiencies.
Studies, including Fraser Institute report show that amalgamations don’t result in the promised savings.
Help us stop amalgamation and unilaterally imposed changes to our local government.
We Love Oakville is a grass-roots campaign. All funds will go to raising awareness in the community and communicating our message to the provincial government. Any funds remaining at the end of the campaign will be donated or the United Way benefiting Oakville.
We need to send a strong message to our MPPs and the Premier that we want to keep our local government and our local voice.
Please visit our website for much more background information on why this campaign is so important.
