To allude in anyway that the Strathcona Community Council is a tool for a councillor's political motives is a statement of selfish ignorance. Based on a series of omissions and misinformation by that individual.

The SCC is and will always be, by the efforts of its volunteers and its constitution, an organizational tool for all residents of the Strathcona neighbourhood. It is entirely free and open for all residents to volunteer their time to work as a team with other volunteer residents.

The SCC seeks to accomplish two things for the residents that choose to use it: 1) To gather and share information that concerns the neighbourhood, and, 2) To promote and plan activites that maintain and reflect the lifestyle of the residents of the neighbouhood.

It will always be up to those who choose to connect, stay connected, and work as a team to decide how these two tasks are implemented.

The interaction between Councillor McHattie and the SCC has always been based on sharing and respectful feedback. We have it understood that the councillor for Ward 1 is elected to represent the residents of this Ward in City Council and that communication with the councillor will be up to those residents to ensure they are properly represented. The SCC was created by the residents to ensure a relationship with that standard of communication exists. To this day that standard has been maintained by both sides. If any residents, like Santo, feel this is not the case then choose to get involved and stay involved to make our team stronger.
