This has been a highly controversial subject. People get the feeling that their expressions and opinions are being suppressed when there is so much control over the process. Why is there a rush to fit an important debate into such a short time-frame? Is it fair that the council runs draconian level control of the questions? What are they afraid of being asked?
Do you think questions at all-candidates meetings should come from the floor, or be vetted through the Peachland Chamber of Commerce? This is your opportunity to anonymously make your feelings felt and heard!
So, you get to the meeting to find out what each of the candidates stands for. Suddenly you find that candidates are limited to just 3 minutes to address the crowd. What can you learn in 3 minutes? Do you think it is fair to expect a candidate to win you over in 3 minutes? By squelching comprehensive debate, you are ensuring that the candidate with the most resources and advertising budget will get the attention of the public. Is this fair? Does this seem like “Candidate Suppression?”
There is a lot going on in Peachland. Some of it seems great, and other stuff just stinks a bit. We would like to know what concerns you the most in this town. Here we have just three options, but there will be many more options in the future. You could repsond to the post with suggestions if you wish.

Do you think citizens views are taken into consideration by the current local government at Public Hearings?
Council and the Mayor are elected by the citizens of Peachland. A democracy means that the majority of the population gets to decide what will or won’t be done in its jurisdiction Politicians have traditionally been sidetracked by nafarious operators seeking to gain an advantage.
Do you believe that once elected, the council and mayor should follow the wishes of the people, or do you thing they are just free to do as they have been doing? This is your opportunity to anonymously voice your opinion!
For over a decade the debate has raged on about whether or not the OCP should allow for buildings greater than 3 storeys on Beach Avenue. How about we take the daggers out of everyone’s back by simple determining what the citizens of this town really want? The move would take the pressure off council and the mayor. They are our employees, afterall, and they are responsible to follow our direction. By answering this poll, you will be assisting the town and the council by removing all doubt as to the desired of this town.
War has broken out in the scientific literature that strikes at the existential core of Covid-19 and its proposed causative virus.
At the heart of the controversy lies the fact that the creators of the most commonly used test, the RT-PCR, published instructions for how to test for SARS-CoV-2 “without having virus material available,” in their own words, relying instead on the Chinese scientists’ genetic sequence published on the internet.
