“A crucial step is forming a steering committee composed of leading citizens representing the major segments of the local economy. It is critical to a CDCs success that all of the participants have an active role in the organization.”
“In re-establishing the TPCDC, mayor and council should have approached key community stakeholders like the Rotary Club of The Pas, the Trappers’ Festival, the Chamber of Commerce, and Kinsmen. You have these groups who have done so many successful community development programs and projects in the community. And the fact that present mayor and council didn’t engage any of them during this process really confuses me. None of them were involved or approached to sit on the TPCDC Board of Directors. I don’t know why you wouldn't use those assets that are already in the community.”
“My opinions of TPCDC are my own political views. They do not reflect my professional position as the ED of the TPCRC or its Board of Directors. It’s important that people understand that my political aspirations to sit on the future council is coming from. I want to be part of the solution, and not be on the sidelines complaining about the political process. I am putting my money where my mouth is.”
“There are systems that work. There are other communities that have successfully used this tax to build things like spray parks, skate parks, ballparks. They offer additional recreational activities that tourists and local residents equally have access to. I don't see why we can’t do the same in The Pas.”
