We are a democracy, and there is only one way to get a democracy on its feet in the matter of its individual, its social, its municipal, its State, its National conduct, and that is by keeping the public informed about what is going on. There is not a crime, there is not a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice which does not live by secrecy. Get these things out in the open, describe them, attack them, ridicule them in the press, and sooner or later public opinion will sweep them away.

The City of Pickering has a transparency problem.

Hall Monitor was created to fix that.

It builds upon the work done in 2021 with the creation of www.pickeringcouncilfor.sale which tracked how much developer money was donated to members of Council in 2018. Over time, that website will be merged into this one.

Hall Monitor seeks to lift the veil of secrecy surrounding Pickering City Hall and:

  • Show votes held at Council;

  • Clearly show financial disclosure documents;

  • Keep the residents of Pickering informed as to the goings on at City Hall.

These are tasks that you would think any serious municipality would have done already. Unfortunately, that's not the case.

If you would like to join the cause and monitor meetings at City Hall, please contact Brad: brad@pickeringhallmonitor.ca
