The straight talking Maddie Di Muccio has nailed her colours to the mast.

Her blog tells us me must embrace change or stagnate.


Her blog is full of inaccuracies. Newmarket's hands are not tied by the Province. Our councillors have a huge amount of discretion to shape new developments. 

For a start, they can stick to the provisions of their own Official Plan.

She pokes regional councillor, John Taylor, in the ribs for his suggestion to cap future buildings at 15 storeys.

She thinks he is bowing to pressure from residents.

I am left wondering how high our inflexible Maddie would go.

If a developer were pushing for 35 storeys would she say no? 

On the evidence of her blog, I doubt it.
