It comes at an interesting time for City of Canning – as what has to be said is a gutless and gutted motion from its new Deputy Mayor, Christine Cunningham goes to Council querying if the City has fully implemented the recommendations from its own inquiry of 2014, after much lobbying from this blogger.
It also comes at a time ratepayers and council watchers are becoming aware the McGowan Govt review in to the Local Govt Act is a spineless exercise that will not improve the accountability of either administrations or elected representatives to the people of WA.
6PR recently called for CITIZEN JOURNALISTS to make up for the loss of reporters across Fairfax newspapers, Channel 10 and more.
In particular, the call was to ensure what goes on in our courts and our councils gets out to the public at large.
Council watchers and ratepayer groups across Perth are gathering together to renew this push now.
