BURLINGTON, ON

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward taking part in a Council Standing Committee meeting.

 

The first of our polls has been completed.

We asked: Should Mayor Meed Ward be apologizing to the public?

The response for something that was new and different for our readers was more than satisfactory.

The response was slightly above 10% of the people that saw the poll.

Our plan at this point is to publish a poll on the Sunday of each week and report on the results on the Thursday – last thing in the day.

We will set up our polling service so that people can look at the results of previous polls once they are complete.

You won’t be able to see the results of a poll while it is running – unless and until you have voted. We didn’t want people to see the results and then go with the majority.

The poll is set up so that you cannot vote more than once on any one question.

We’d like to get that response rate up to a 25% level.

And, if you have a question that you think should be polled – pass it along.

The results from the first poll are set out below.

Please keep in mind that this poll was taken BEFORE the Gazette published a video of the council meeting that was so disruptive.

4 comments to 86% of the people who responded to the poll said the Mayor should have apologized to Councillor Stolte

    The mayor should be apologizing to Councillor Stolte and that apology should be scheduled to be first thing on the agenda!

    • Dave Turner

      Just wondering if you think Stolte should apologize to MMW for the un-councilperson like language she used in addressing the Mayor? So apologies all round?

  • Pamela Cowan

    Look forward to participating in the polling.
    How can I access that?

  • Dave Turner

    Am I reading correctly? Was the question posed “Should Mayor Meed Ward be apologizing to the public?” If that was the question it would seem to be too wide open. It does not say apologize for what.

    Also 236 is a minute sampling. Would Nanos or any other recognized professional pollsters give this any statistical relevance?
