I don't know, it seems I'm getting odd downvotes too. Perhaps just a lot of Jason Farr supporters who don't like honest criticisms, but my criticism has been objective evaluation of his statements, not a personal attack. And it's certainly not like our relatives are the only ones in the world who manipulate social services for their gain, so unless someone has a really rosy view of the system, I don't understand downvotes from there either - I'm not saying to cut off social services to those who need it.

The specific question I was thinking of at the Ward 2 debate (among a couple others) was about decentralizing social services instead of concentrating them in the core, and the response was so "meh, maybe that might be something to look at," not him answering in a manner that indicated he'd thought it through.

If a Ward 2 councillor doesn't understand that question, I'm really leery of him attempting to represent me.
