You seem to be continually clarifying some sort of point but with every post it just gets fuzzier.

Let me clarify mine:

When I think of a ward redraw, I do not consider adding one ward and shuffling a few lines left and right to be sufficient. We need to stop thinking about the old boundaries and come up with a totally new way of determining the areas covered by each ward. I am not pretending to know exactly what criteria are best, but we have to come up with something best for the whole city.

It is good to hear that an external consultant will take a wider view. But if you read all of the comments from City Hall, they almost all boil down to "it will cost too much to investigate it and we can't afford another mountain councillor salary anyways, so let's not bother". All I'm trying to say is we need to see past their job-security-protecting-smokescreen and realize that there's more too this situation than one way-too-big mountain ward.
