Just a small FYI, the reason questions like 3 and 4 are designed similarly is to increase the accuracy of the survey, which has been designed and checked over again and again by statistics professors and doctoral students to ensure it's asking questions in a fair way.

When a question is asked from both sides like that it ensures the answer isn't skewed one way because people didn't understand the wording of a question - similarly, there's been quite a bit of feedback on making sure the survey questions are on things municipal councillors can actually affect.

Do I have opinions and positions? I sure hope so... any citizen does. The point of a survey like this is that no one's opinions take precedence but there's an accurate reflection of each ward.

And in the areas we fall short, I hope in 4 years we learn from and have an extremely accurate and specific tool to use them - just like it took the Guelph Civic League years to get going. In the meantime, do the best job we can and find out the most information we can.
