That’s the thorny question that Professor Robert MacDermid from York University will try to answer on Saturday 31 March from 1pm-3pm at the Newmarket Public Library on Park Avenue.
All local councillors have been invited. As I tap this out, I know that Regional Councillor John Taylor will be coming along.
Councillors Joe Sponga and Tom Hempen will also be there.
You can see Professor MacDermid talking about his research on campaign finance in the 905 area.
The event is organized by Occupy Newmarket.
