Collaboration at its best.
There are many versions of "regional government". New Brunswick has recently initiated 12 Regional Service Commissions, which will collectively manage regional planning, transit, policing, major recreation infrastructure, solid waste management, and regional emergency planning (things that for the most part we are already doing in our area). What works well in one setting will not necessarily work for ours and we need to know what all the options and their implications are.

makes it an exciting Board to be a member of and again an excellent example of the efficiencies and maximizing of resources that can be achieved. Kings Transit is another example of the strength of regional collaboration. There are others but these to me are excellent positive examples we just need more of them.
I consider, over my 15 years as a councillor, working on these three Boards to be the most productive in my experience. The first was the 15 years of the Kings Regional Development Agency a powerful force for uniting municipalities and creating economic opportunity for this region. The KRDA did many, many projects one of which was to build the Valley Community Fibre Network, which has leveraged communications and economic opportunity for our businesses and people. Unfortunately, the KRDA wound up its affairs last month. Municipal partners are presently working to put in place the successor organization the Regional Enterprise Network. Without a doubt the KRDA was definitively the example of Regional Government or Vans Chukka Low Grey
Valley Waste is another example of a regional cooperative venture that is a cost effective organization that benefits all of us. It is no only an economic success but good for the environment and has not stopped there but has a number of forward looking projects that Vans Blue And Brown
There are a number of success stories in Kings County, but more has to be done. I have served on three boards of organizations that are powerful examples of how good regional government and collaboration can be.
have been successful, while others not so much, reflecting unique factors of circumstance and Vans Suede Shoes process in each case. What can we learn, and what is it about our region that might make any form or regionalization easier or more difficult?
There are actually many services currently shared across the region. Regional transit and waste management are two. How effectively they are working is something a study should assess. There is a cost to process. A study must show us what those costs are and whether they are warranted and what the alternatives may be. That said we are a relatively small population, even smaller if you consider municipal units individually. We could not possibly afford the services we currently have with respect to just the two I have mentioned if we did not share, and so from that perspective it is absolutely working.
I do believe that the process of creating a more regional government is as important as the outcome. One of the things a good study must do is provide an implementation plan for whatever might be recommended that "learns" from regionalization experiences across Canada.

Our partner municipalities have embraced limited forms of regional cooperation which been successful. It is time to consider through a study other expanded forms of regional collaboration, which will strengthen our region and avoid unnecessary duplication, increase efficiencies through shared resources. There are other models available in Canada and Nova Scotia through which we can learn from others experience and successes. A study would be a necessary first step to assist all of us to make informed decisions to maximize the benefits for our area. I also do not necessarily wish to stop at the borders of Kings County. We have already mutually beneficial agreements with neighbouring municipalities outside of our County. I do believe that we should concentrate on what is doable and aim to build a positive relationship of trust and a positive culture of success to insure progressive traction. There is no point in trying to do too much too soon as it will take time for municipalities to change practices that have existed for generations. However our citizens appear to be ready for their elected representatives to take action. A study will be only useful if we actually respond and make progress.
