"Strong Mayor" is bullshit and shouldn't happen.
Additionally: Any change in the authority of the Mayor should only happen at an election.
The person who won as "the city councilor who is full time, and responsible for photo ops, diplomacy, and generally representing council" is not likely the same person who would win as "ruler with unchecked unilateral power to alter the nature of local governance"
And when I put it like that, that second one shouldn't exist.

The water level isn't always this low at Moon River Falls, Moon River, Georgian Bay Ontario Canada but on this day we could get really close in our boat and walk it to the top. It is a remote wilderness waterfall that is only accessible by canoe or motorboat if the water level is high enough.

Missing Girl in Sudbury, Ontario - Mariah, 14 - #Ontario #Sudbury
UPDATE: She has been found, alive and well. Seems to have been spooked and run off. Thank you for all the boosts and shares.
Please stop boosting now though so as to avoid stressing people or getting false positives, she has been FOUND and is back home safe.
It's a long shot anyone on here is nearby, but I'll post anyway. A friend's beloved dog, Buffy, is missing in North Augusta, Ontario, Canada near Branch Road. She's a small yellow brown labrador who's micro-chipped and normally wears a purple collar. Please boost, especially if you have connections living in that part of the world.
Ring the number on her collar or if you can't message me on here if you know something.

As a teenager growing up in #Ontario, I always envied the kids who spent their summers #TreePlanting; they'd come back from the bush in September, insect-chewed and leathery, with new muscle, incredible stories, thousands of dollars, and a glow imparted by the knowledge that they'd made a new forest with their own blistered hands.
