LETTER: Cannington resident calls out council for changes to social media policy

It has been reported that you recently voted in favour to the new Brock Township social media policy.  While much of the policy makes sense and outlines some common sense issues, I believe one of the sections deserves attention and comment. Specifically, Section 6.3.3:  “Staff will not use their personal social media accounts to comment or question any of the Township of Brock’s policies, procedures and decisions of Council or senior staff on the basis that there are alternate mechanisms in place to address any concerns.”
