Speaking of civic engagement

Although it may seem as though discussion surrounding rental housing has been simmering down for the past few months, ideas for a housing by-law are still on the front burner for the City of Hamilton. Most recently, our local (Ward 1) Councillor, Brian McHattie, has implemented a pilot project to solicit resident’s opinions about a rental housing licensing by-law in the City of Hamilton. The survey uses Democravise, an online tool developed at the McMaster Innovation Park, which combines polling, crowdsourcing, and questions in a unique way that generates productive civic engagement.

In the spirit of becoming more politically involved, take a look at what our Ward 1 Councillor has been working on. This poll is a great way to voice your thoughts about what you’d like to see for your Hamilton home.
