If you have ever lived in a city in which councils have been consolidated, eg, Montreal, you will know this will be an absolute disaster. All it leads to is less representation, less democracy and higher, not lower, costs. This is demonstrably a case of "the grass is always greener......"

Don't be surprised when a bureaucrat tells you that reducing access to local government through consolidation is "in your best interests". They always want to consolidate power at your expense. That government that is closest to the people is best.
