Open and Transparent Government Meetings for Salt Spring

129 Signatures Goal: 250

WHEREAS: 1. There are numerous times where our schedules make it either impractical or impossible for us to attend Local Trust Committee meetings. 2. We are interested in what goes on at the meetings, and, we believe good governance should be completely transparent to constituents, when it comes to conducting the public’s business. 3. In this day and age of live video broadcasting and online video streaming, many local governments across Canada are allowing constituents full and unrestricted access to public meetings. 4. We believe Salt Spring has a proud tradition of people being unafraid to voice their opinions in public, and, we do not believe anyone will be hindered by having their submissions recorded for all to hear. 5. We believe the rebroadcast of recorded meetings will help to provide a better understanding of the many issues and debates we face as a community. 6. Under Section 6 (1) of the Island Trust Act, “For each local trust area, 2 trustees are to be elected to represent the electors of the area.” THEREFORE: We, the undersigned residents and/or electors of Salt Spring Island, hereby petition Trustee George Ehring and Trustee Christine Torgrimson, as our duly elected representatives, to bring forward and pass a resolution of the Local Trust Committee to amend Bylaw 391 (A Bylaw to establish Procedures for Meetings of the Local Trust Committee.) to specifically allow the audio and video recording of all Local Trust Committee meetings by members of the public.
