Regional Councillors Vowing To Take Action On Equalization
Regional Councillors are pledging to take action on the controversial issue of equalization payments.
Critics argue the Cape Breton Regional Municipality doesn’t get its fair share of equalization from the province.
At last night’s council meeting councillors passed a motion introduced by councillor Kendra Coombes.
The motion calls on the Regional Municipality to send letters to other Cape Breton counties and the Town of Port Hawkesbury asking them to join the fight.
It also includes a request for support from Cape Breton’s First Nations chiefs.
