I am writing to you with respect to the meeting hosted by Hydro One on Thursday October 15, 2020 to share my personal observations and the actions I will be taking.
Hydro One’s responses to the concerns of neighbours and users of the corridor were wholly unsatisfactory. Questions went unanswered, others resulted in corporate communication non-answers and the meeting was abruptly cut off at 7:30 pm.
This was not consultation. The platform did not allow for easy transparent engagement the participant list was hidden and it is unknown how questions were chosen, in what order or by what method or how many questions were left unanswered.
I have been clear that Hydro One needs to be;
· Selective in the vegetation that need to be removed
· Strategic in the implementation of the plan
· Sensitive to the needs of residents.
I feel compelled to host a follow up call with members of our community and so on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 7pm I will host an informal virtual Zoom meeting to continue to gather your questions and concerns.
I alone will not be able to provide you answers to your concerns and questions and I will invite Hydro One representatives to the meeting on Monday.
Whether they attend or not, I will be able to provide residents of our ward with a forum to express concerns, pose questions and exchange with neighbours.
Please join me on Monday evening via Zoom and share this with you neighbours and network.
Jean Cloutier Councillor for Alta Vista is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
