I read the comments here with great interest.

If you want to de-Amalgamate, then we go all the way.

I never grew up in Stoney Creek, I grew in Saltfleet. Saltfleet was bigger than Stoney Creek in population at the time and there was a huge uproar. One Stoney Creek councillor, at the time, was quoted as saying "you've been taken over, get over it". This councillor was one of the last councillors in Stoney Creek and was screaming bloody murder in 2000.

I was also at the meeting to discuss a merger with Glanbrook and Stoney Creek. It went very well until the people from Stoney Creek stated that the new town would be called Stoney Creek. It ended right there.

This is about power and ego and nothing more.

And by the way, we didn't amalgamate in 2000, it started in the early 1970's with regional government. When funds from municipalities are pooled it's just a matter time before it becomes one.

Let's move on.
