A gathering of various community groups took place this evening at a downtown Kingston hotel.
The Kingston coalition is made up of members of groups like wellington-x, the Sydenham district association and friends of the Kingston inner harbour.
This evenings meeting served to provide updates on a number of issues and discuss ways to help improve the city.
However during the open-mic portion of the evening – a Kingston city councillor had some harsh words in regards to city staff.
Jim Neill: “Transparency and open government – council has given that direction to staff, but I don’t think our senior staff have every bought in to that concept. It’s only been lip-service.”
