Comparisons need to be presented
The real issue isn’t Belleville versus Thurlow. The issue is the total cost of policing.
Why are we paying double what Quinte West is? Why is council seemingly blind and over the past 20 years has always resisted asking the OPP for a costing to police our city?
Respectfully, responsible journalism should be asking these hard questions; not accepting the status quo as something we all must be forced to share the costs of. Until we have something to compare to what we presently have, the resistance between urban and rural will exist. Doug McIntyre Belleville
