1/ Are you in favour of bricks-and-mortar cannabis stores in your municipality? Why or why not?
Not in favour of bricks and mortar cannabis stores, South Bruce as a small municipality needs to learn more about fallout and added costs before any commitment.
2/ What are your plans for future economic development strategies? With the Bruce Power extending its operating life for decades, an influx of new residents are expected in the region. How will we accommodate them?
We are allredy working on this with business to Bruce through the county , as well as making resources available through the municipality as to what is available as far as developmental land for housing, store fronts, schools, and recreational programs. Development doesn't happen over night but I feel South Bruce is in a good position to handle a wide variety of growth in the very near future.
3/ With prosperity, comes hardship. Many local businesses are concerned that they do not have enough employees to sustain their businesses because of the many high paying jobs that exist in the region combined with the low unemployment rate. How do we make local businesses sustainable, in your opinion?
Educating our youth that there is viable options for remaing in the rural community which may include local training and and educational programs in fields such as trades work, as well as business opportunities.
