They are not journalism.

In 2005 North Grenville Community Complex fundraising was on target to meet planned $5million in funding contracts, donations and naming rights. The consistent leadership by Council to develop a Community Centre was redirected through an election that saw a new Mayor attempt to divert public funds to go toward a downtown Kemptville office complex. Was fundraising impacted? By how much? And when it comes to community leadership…. what is needed to help a municipality succeed when they take on a major project that can offer a major benefit to the area?
