I have been involved with WhereDoWeStand from the beginning and this is what I have seen.
I worked on the website and saw the community response to the PAUSE logging issue.
We collected 1500 petitions for PAUSE and more importantly - almost nine hundred comments. (These are available at the Municipality).
The process has been a unique learning experience for all involved - we didn't have the answers - we just wanted a PAUSE to look at all the options.
To achieve these results the group spent $9,400 and we raised $6,500 from tickets sales & donations.
The average donation amount was $10.
Over the last six months - more than 60 volunteers donated thousands of hours of their time.
If ever there was a grassroots movement - this is it.
