Thank you @AngBentivegna Angelo Bentivegna for being the only Ward 6 candidate who would seek to protect against Meridian's deforestation of Tyandaga's #greenbelt. @BlairLancaster and Kinsey Schurm would not respond to @BurlingtonGreen 's question about the quarry expansion.

Ward 6 Debate


Thursday, October 11, 2018 8:43 PM

Joan Little (Hamilton Spectator) Talks about Ward 6 debate

Is prior involvement necessary? Probably not, but this election, with two incumbents of seven retiring, familiarity with the system could be advantageous.


About 150 attended Thursday's Ward 6 debate, which incumbent Blair Lancaster boycotted (more later). Three viable candidates debated. Local business owner Angelo Bentivegna placed second to Lancaster in 2014's 10-candidate race, and regularly attends committee meetings.

Twenty-four-year-old sales executive Kinsey Schurm has helped candidates in provincial and federal races, and portfolio manager Ken White is working on a CPA accounting designation. Each offers different strengths.


Bentivegna is very up on current issues, and has been heavily involved in volunteering and local fundraising.

Schurm is young and eager, less involved, but is a non-voting member of the cycling committee.

White brings financial acumen.


Bentivegna is concerned about switches of employment lands to residential, and keen on seniors' issues.

Schurm wants weekly garbage pickup.

White questioned the cost of the Joseph Brant Museum expansion, saying about $750 per square foot is much too costly.

Joan Little: Spectator Comments on Burlington Election & Candidates

July 27 was the last day to register in municipal elections, and there are some outstanding candidates in Burlington’s races. Thank heaven we don’t face Toronto’s chaos!
Five of our seven incumbents are seeking re-election. Mayor Rick Goldring is challenged by Ward 2 councillor Marianne Meed Ward. Ward 4’s Jack Dennison, Ward 5’s Paul Sharman, and Ward 6’s Blair Lancaster are running. One mayoral contender will lose, ensuring three new faces.
There are four mayoral candidates. Realtor Mike Wallace, on council from 1994 to 2006, twice, part way through terms, sought federal office, succeeding in 2006. That meant council had to fill the vacancy during his term. There’s nothing illegal, but some would say this shows a lack of commitment for the responsibility he took on. He’s a formidable candidate though, because of his strong Conservative roots, and Burlington is blue.
E-commerce business owner Greg Woodruff ran for Regional Chair in 2014. He seeks the top jobs with no experience, and last election did not provide literature. How do you hold a politician accountable when there’s nothing to show what he stands for? Will he distribute a written mayoral platform? Websites can disappear.
We also elect the Regional Chair. Incumbent Gary Carr is being challenged by Anne Marsden. Six 2018 contenders ran in 2014, including Woodruff, who ran for Regional Chair. Jason Boelhouer ran in Ward 1 and Lisa Cooper in Ward 3. Marsden and Peter Rusin ran for mayor. (Cooper and Marsden run perennially).

Angelo Bentivegna challenged Ward 6 incumbent Lancaster, placing second of nine candidates. He alone attends most meetings.

Wards 1, 2, and 3 have no incumbent.
Ward 1 has 11 candidates: seniors services provider Boelhouer, retired electronics/IT guru and recent Green party candidate Vince Fiorito, business owner and Aldershot BIA chair Kelvin Galbraith, realtor and Catholic school board trustee Arlene Iantomasi, Andrew Paul Jordan, Kevin Lee, Garry Milne, Tayler Morin, insurance man Rene Papin, realtor and Chamber of Commerce stalwart Marty Staz, and BIA executive director and friend of incumbent Rick Craven, Judy Worsley.
Ward 2 has six contenders: communications specialist Kimberly Calderbank, multinational employee Michael Jones, administrator of a health service provider Lisa Kearns, retired teacher Gerard Shkuda, IT specialist Roland Tanner, and Walter Weibe. Jones, Kearns and Tanner have all delegated impressively at committees and council.
Ward 3’s five candidates are Lisa Cooper and two exceptional individuals with strong volunteer records: foreign services officer Rory Nisan and IT man Gareth Williams. Two new entrants are Darcy Hutzel, and realtor and Consensus Party provincial candidate Rusin.
In Ward 4, 24-year incumbent Dennison faces seniors’ housing advocate Shawna Stolte, who argued persuasively at committee recently.
Ward 5 two-term incumbent Sharman has strong competition, too. Former elementary principal Mary Ellen St. James has been involved in city issues and a successful OMB hearing. IT specialist Xin Yi Zhang spoke on an Alton traffic issue. Two new registrants are Wendy Moraghan and PR man Daniel Roukema.

In Ward 6 two-term incumbent Lancaster faces 2014 runner-up business owner Bentivegna, portfolio manager Ken White, and new entrant Kinsey Schurm.

Citizens are active this election because of some unpopular decisions by council, so turnout will likely exceed 2014’s paltry 34 per cent. (2010’s was 37.6). Debates will be held in every ward so voters can compare choices.
Check websites and social media to see how contenders address your issues. Look for prior involvement, and/or community volunteering. Some offer personal background, some don’t.
Some even lack websites, addresses or phone numbers. Some don’t live in wards they’re running in, but a few of these are impressive.

This information was compiled from observations at city hall and community meetings, websites, and knowledge of some of them. Real candidates deserve our appreciation for all the time and money invested, but do your own checking. Have they really been involved all along, or are some opportunists, seeking a $106,000 paycheque?

The most frequently heard council criticism is, “nobody listens”. Be heard this time!

LaSalle Marina...4 Million Taxpayers Dollars!!! ...Check it out???

At Committee meeting Monday June 4th, a decision was made to move forward on  a 4 Million Dollar expense to build a new floating wave break. This preliminary committee vote will not be final untill it is approved by Council later this month. (June 18th)

Here are the "Coles Notes" on the issue:

1-The Marina land at LaSalle Park is owned by the City of Hamilton, and the Pier and water are property of the Hamilton Port Authority.

2-City of Burlington has leased the land for many years at 1 dollar per year.

3-The City of Burlington has tried to negotiate to purchase the land from Hamilton without success.

4-Records show that the lease on the Marina runs out in 2022.

5-Is a NEW lease an option?....not aware at this time, nothing has been made publicly.

6-There are approximately 220 boater at the present time at the marina.

7-Boater slip requests/rentals have been diminishing for many years at LaSalle Marina due to damage to boats caused by high waves etc.. Therefore some boaters have moved on...to places that provide better wave break protection.

8-Lasalle Marina has been privately operated for over 25 years.

9- The City is prepared to hand over 4 million taxpayer dollars to the Marina operators/association so they can build a new floating wave-break wall in the near future for their boaters.

10-The repayment of this 4 Million taxpayer dollars will come from (an agreement with the city) a promise to pay something each year....BUT the money will go to a RESERVE FUND...to be held by the City of Burlington over 28 years to build an improved WAVE BREAK WALL! (if accumulated funds that are collected over the 28 years is enough)

11-This discussion has been going on for years between Council, Staff and the Marina Association...actually,  a couple years ago in the Council Chambers, the LaSalle Marina Organization said that they didn't and wouldn't need money from the City.

12-The disappointment I have with this Council (during this committee meeting) is that no one asked about the LEASE/ or ownership issue on the property...????

13-I ask the Mayor and each and every Councillor that if they were personally able to loan the funds to the LaSalle Marina Association ...would they actually be agreeable to that kind of repayment schedule?

Does this set a precedent?

We will see what the final VOTE will be at the next Council Meeting-June 18th, 2018.

New online Facility Booking System

Burlington has a new Online Registration and Facility Booking System

Parks and Recreation is in the process of changing our online registration and facility booking system which will be fully implemented in August 2018. The purpose of this email is to provide some initial background information as we are starting to communicate with the public.

Improvements
Some Benefits of the new system include:
• Mobile friendly
• Customers’ ability to manage their accounts online (adding family members, updating contact info)
• Customers’ ability to securely store financial info in their profile for an easier checkout experience

New Logins
New logins (user id’s and passwords) are required for the new system so customers need to update/provide an email address on their RecExpress account by July 15, 2018 in order to interact with our new system online. New logins will be emailed to customers in early August. Customers who do NOT wish to provide an email address, will still be able to transact with us at any one of our Customer Service counters; they can visit burlington.ca/play for more information.

Customers can update their email address by calling 905-335-7720 or emailing registrations@burlington.ca.

Communications
The City will be communicating directly with user groups and providing extra support at the Seniors’ Centre as well as using a variety of communication tactics including social media, traditional media, newsletters, in-person and an FAQ online at burlington.ca/registration to help with the transition to the new system.

The City is looking forward to a smooth transition to the new online registration and facility booking system.

It is in every citizen in Burlington's best interest to watch the very 1st Council meeting after the election of 2014. The true character and mindset of our elected Councilors will be with us till the next election in 2018! 

I find that the conduct of some Councilors were immature, not collaborative, and simply childish. That is why our City needs change.

If you don't wish to watch the complete inaugural Dec.2014 Council session...pay very close attention from the 41.00 minute mark through the 59.59 minute mark. Is this the kind of Councilors we want running our City?

New Courthouse in Burlington

The City of Burlington, on behalf of its partners, Halton Region, the Town of Oakville, the Town of Milton and the Town of Halton Hills, has announced a new Provincial Offences Act courthouse to be built to house Halton Court Services. 

The new courthouse will be built at 4085 Palladium Way in Burlington to serve the people of Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville.

Construction of the new, consolidated Ontario Court of Justice – Halton Provincial Offences Office will begin in 2017. The building will be designed and built by Gross Capital Inc., constructed by Buttcon Ltd. and leased to Halton Court Services.  

Once complete, the new courthouse will administer provincial offences court services for all of Halton Region. Provincial offences court services deal strictly with non-criminal provincial offences charges issued in Halton. These non-criminal charges include:

  • Highway Traffic Act offences, such as speeding, driving without insurance or failing to stop at a red light
  • Municipal bylaw offences, such as excessive noise, animal control or garbage disposal
  • Offences under provincial legislation such as the Environmental Protection Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Dog Owners’ Liability Act or the Trespass to Property Act.

As a division of the City of Burlington’s Legal Department, Halton Court Services administers Provincial Offences Act court services on behalf of the municipal partnership within the Halton area through two locations: one in Burlington and one in Milton. These two existing courts for provincial offences will relocate to 4085 Palladium Way once the new courthouse is built.

Facts about the Ontario Court of Justice – Halton Provincial Offences Court Office

  • Construction will begin in spring or summer 2017 and be completed by January 2019.
  • No violence-related, criminal charges or family law matters will be handled at the courthouse.
  • The Milton and Burlington court service locations are 16,000 square feet (1,486 square metres) combined. The new facility, at 34,000 square feet (3,159 square metres), will meet today’s needs more effectively and will help Halton Court Services plan 30 years into the future.
  • When completed, the courthouse will operate Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Architect’s Description of the Courthouse Design

The new courthouse is designed by the Ventin Group Ltd. to capture the changing and evolving landscape of Halton Region in the design. The natural environment is echoed in the design through the selection of landscape materials.

  • The north half of the building is a stone wall, reflecting the strong and secure Niagara Escarpment.
  • The south half is a glass wall, symbolic of transparency—a virtue and goal for the justice system. The glass wall is lined with a series of wooden pillars representing the natural woodlands of Halton Region.
  • The glass walls facing east and west are treated with wavy, coloured glazing to represent the character and motion of the local creeks.
  • The thin, white roof canopy captures a thin blanket of snow overhanging to the south to provide sun shading for the glass—appropriate for a Canadian institution.

The new courthouse will be a dignified building, timeless in design, welcoming to the public and comfortable for all staff using the facility.

Tonight's news release from the City of Burlington:City of Burlington Council approves report giving staff authority to legally enforce site alteration by-law against BurlingtonAt its meeting on Monday, April 20, 2015, Burlington City Council approved a confidential report giving City of Burlington staff full authority to legally enforce the requirements of city site alteration by-law 64-2014 against Burlington Airpark Inc. The Burlington Executive Airpark was given 30 days, from March 20, 2015, to comply with the by-law after months of discussion between officials at the city and the Airpark failed to produce the required application. Further legal proceedings will be commenced to compel the Airpark to comply with the city’s site alteration by-law and file the required application for a permit.The City of Burlington site alteration by-law 64-2014 regulates the placing, dumping, cutting and removal of fill or the alteration of grades or drainage on a piece of land. Individuals undertaking this type of work are first required to submit an application to the city for a site alteration permit.The Burlington Airpark Inc. has not submitted an application for a site alteration permit for the areas of the Airpark property where substantial quantities of fill were deposited between 2009 to 2014.“The Burlington Airpark continues to be of great interest to the residents of Burlington,” said Mayor Rick Goldring. “The requirements set out in Burlington’s site alteration by-law are necessary to help regulate impacts to the environment and drainage patterns.”TimelineJuly 4, 2013 - The City of Burlington moved forward with a legal strategy to address concerns regarding noise and fill activities related to construction at the Burlington Airpark on Bell School Line.July 18, 2013 – The Burlington Airpark serves the City of Burlington with an application to take the city to court and seeks a court order to declare the city’s site alteration by-law does not apply to the airport’s operations and construction of aerodrome facilities.July 29, 2013 - The City of Burlington and the Burlington Airpark reach a settlement to stop fill operations at the airpark until a decision is made by the courts about whether the city has jurisdiction to regulate fill operations through its site alteration by-law.Nov. 13, 2013 - A Milton Superior Court rules the City of Burlington’s site alteration by-law applies to the Burlington Airpark.June 11, 2014 - The Court of Appeal for Ontario upholds the decision of the Milton Superior Court that the City of Burlington's site alteration by-law applies to the Burlington Airpark.For more information about the city and the Burlington Executive Airpark, visit www.burlington.ca/airpark.

Alton Village parking

Parking pamphlets were sent to homes in the Alton community with a NEW version of the OLD parking regulations. All this without the INPUT of the residences that are the stakeholders.

The City Of Burlington is allowing parking perpendicular to the lay-bys to everyone's surprise again!

Cars are able to have an overhang 30cm onto the road...
last year no perpendicular parking... which totally cleared up parking issues on Thomas
Alton etc... and now they are permitting it again. It was suggested by many last year that it was a safety issue...and NOW it must not be.

Who is driving this agenda and why isn't our ward keeper not communicating what has transpired.

​As always I can be reached via email or phone (as many of you know) to discuss and to help in any way I can.

 Cheers

Thank You

Well, it’s been three years since ‪the committee of ‎Beauty and the Bistro‬ decided to purchase a state of the art digital mammography machine with a biopsy attachment for our hospital at a price tag of 450,000 dollars.


Last night,…almost 700 guests gathered at Leggat Cadillac to witness the completion of this community project.
Here are the amounts raised by this incredible group...creating a cocktail style event each year.


2012= $ 77,000.00

2013= $101,000.00 + $88,000 Leggat Auto Group


2014= $117,000.00 from last night gala


2014= $ balance of shortfall topped up personally by the Sutherland family of Sutherland Homes.


Total=450,000 paid in full!

My Opening Comments for Ward 6 Candidates' Debate

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity  to introduce myself as a candidate for Ward 6 councilor.

My name is Angelo Bentivegna and I have lived and worked in Burlington for approximately 30 years. 

We have operated a business and proud to have survived  good and bad times over the last 25 years….

Living and working here gives me the perfect
balance to represent you.

I am a husband, father and grandfather.  I understand each generation’s concerns . 

I will engage our residents to take part in moving our city forward through realistic and viable solution.

Knocking on 9,000 doors and listening to people, here is what we need to do,

We need to focus on industrial and commercial opportunities. This will reduce the dependency
on residential tax increases.

Make our parks more inviting and eco friendly……  add shaded tree areas, picnic areas….. These are things that
encourage our families to use them..

Our city facilities  need to be more vibrant.  Encourage more activities for our seniors and young families.

Our Seniors need more places to interact and stay connected with our city.

My past experiences will allow me to accomplish these goals

I have worked with the Halton Catholic School Board Strategic planning Committee as a parent liaison.

I have been on numerous boards over the last 20 plus years including sports,  community and fundraising groups.

I have managed to show our city councilors the need to “do the right thing” on numerous occasions.
 Even changing “by-laws”.

My past achievements are a testament of my commitment to our community, our ward and our city .

My Closintg Comments on Ward 6 Candidates' Debate

Thank you for listening.

For those who may have forgotten:  
I am  Angelo Bentivegna

Ward 6 is unique from other
wards in our city. We have 4 distinct neighbourhoods.

Our Rural  is as old as our city and needs to be
preserved.

Headon Forest sill need infrastructure repair in the near future.

Millcroft has concerns about  traffic and noise

Alton Village is our newest community, multi-cultural,
serious parking issues, needfor inclusion

Each of our four neighbourhoods will be relying on one of us to be collaborative, communicative
and successful in dealing with five other councilors and a mayor to achieve results that we deem as Ward 6 priorities.

We also need to ask ourselves….

Who at this table is best to spend 210 million of your tax dollars?

Who at this table has shown
the ability to accomplish goals that have been set out?

I believe history repeats itself.
I believe our past values hold as future values.
I believe selfless people get the job done with help from others.
I believe you can only be successful at what
you do, when you have collaboration and buy in.

Our ward and our city need a change. 

We need to change how and where we spend our dollars.
We need to hold departments accountable.
We deserve the biggest bang for our buck

I believe I am your ward 6 choice…

I will NOT let you down…
My past has proven that.

Don't believe everything you read or hear!

I have recently read and heard that a Council report suggests taxes will be going up....16% over the next 4 years! 

Well, this is a very premature way to evaluate the incoming Council...both new and old. There are so many stones to overturn and many new ideas and principles to review. But the key task will be to develop a streamlined process to monitor,react and evaluate the efficiencies of the new "Service Based Budget Program".

The results of this program will create greater success and improved services for our great City. I know that will be my goal.

Mayors views on New St. bike Lanes in 2014


New Street Bike Lanes Study
Posted on July 16, 2014 by Mayor Goldring

I would like to take this opportunity to discuss with you the rationale for the initiation of the New Street Bike Lanes’ Study that was recently supported by Council.
Why should we consider designated bike lanes on New Street?
Since the City of Burlington declared itself as a Sustainable Development Community in 1990, we have invested in creating vibrant neighborhoods. To be truly vibrant, neighbourhoods should be designed to encourage active lifestyles, including walking and cycling. These areas are often favoured places to live because of lower pollution levels, less traffic congestion, more parks and public spaces, improved opportunities for social interaction, and an abundance of healthy lifestyle choices.
To get to this state, a complete transportation network must be designed to allow for a healthy and pragmatic balance of cars, public transit, cyclists, and pedestrians. That network must be safe, accessible, cater to the varied needs of our community, and be implemented in a  fiscally responsible manner. This balance must meet current and long-term needs, given the investment required.
Part of defining future needs is learning about the developing trends.

The just-published study conducted by the provincial cycling coalition group, Share the Road, notes that 32% of Ontarians bike at least monthly and the majority (54%) want to ride their bicycles more often, including commuting to work, school, running errands, or even for light shopping. The survey shows that 68% of respondents state better bike lanes and infrastructure are keys to increased ridership.
Additional studies conclude that the younger demographic (under 35) is choosing to cycle more often as a healthy lifestyle choice and that providing a healthier environment is vital to attracting younger residents and families to our community, which in turn, sustains and enriches vibrant neighbourhoods.
But this trend is not exclusively the domain of the younger demographic.
US Federal data also shows that cycling rates among people between the ages of 60 and 79 are soaring when as recently as the mid 1990’s, riding a bicycle over the age of 55 was very rare and riding over 75 was almost unheard of.
This is particularly noteworthy, given Burlington’s young-at-heart population. In fact, our city has one of the highest proportions of senior citizens in the GTA.
While it would be simply wrong to predict the demise of cars, people are looking to cycling, walking, and public transit to augment their automobiles, either for reasons of health, convenience, or cost (e.g. parking, gas, etc.).
But therein lies the catch: the lack of infrastructure to support this choice.
Not all bike lanes are created equal
While a line in the pavement dividing cars from cyclists may appear to be satisfactory at first thought, in reality, it is not because it does not provide the safety and security of a protected bike lane. Cyclists who use wider, protected lanes feel safer and, more importantly, research demonstrates that they truly are safer, which ultimately protects motorists as well.
A short-cut solution merely goes part way and satisfies no one, which ultimately results in a failure of the undertaking.
This is particularly so when you consider that while current cycling enthusiasts may “accept” the risk inherent with a sub-par infrastructure, the broader community, many whom would bike otherwise, simply will not because of these safety and security fears. In short, increased cycling will not occur and a reduction may well result instead.
Multi-Purpose Paths
There are those who ask why cyclists do not use existing multi-purpose paths. There are at least two answers to this question.
First, current or prospective cyclists often want to take direct routes to their destinations and, much more often than not, these multi-purpose pathways were never constructed as such. Rather, roadways were.
More fundamentally, bicycles, in fact, compromise the safety of these pathways, which are often filled with walkers, strollers, and roller-bladers.
So is the assurance of a protected bike lane enough to expand ridership?
New research suggests that the answer is “Yes”. A recent study led by Christopher Monsere of Portland State University released a thorough analysis of new protected bike lanes in five major U.S. cities. The researchers videotaped the new lanes, conducted local surveys, and gathered data on cycling trends to get a full picture of life in these new corridors — comparing what they found to rider habits before the protected lanes were installed. They found that ridership increased anywhere from 21% to 171%. Unquestionably, cycling rates rose on the new lanes across the board.
In talking with many constituents, my sense is that that most people are accepting of cyclists and automobile drivers co-existing safely. And most want to avoid the potential for dangerous situations that the current infrastructure presents.
This works very well in new areas such as subdivisions where bike lanes are woven into the design of these neighborhoods. The complexity comes into play where we have to retrofit long-existing city roads such as New Street.
I wanted to clarify some misconception that I understand has been circulating, that the cost of the dedicated bike lanes on New Street is $2 million. Rather, the incremental cost is $1.2 million, with the balance of $0.8 million is for the resurfacing that will be done regardless.
Nonetheless, we all appreciate what is at stake here: the cost. For this reason, Council did not vote for installing dedicated bike lanes on New Street at this time. Rather, we voted in favour of directing staff to conduct an analysis for the viability of dedicated bike lanes.

It is through this platform and the current updating of the city’s Transportation Master Plan that we invite your voice to be heard so the best decision can be made.
Thank you for your interest. With Burlington slated to invest over $1 billion in infrastructure in the next 20 years, a true opportunity exists to plan and to “get it right” when upgrading our city streets.
As always I invite and appreciate hearing your views.Post navigation
