Jamie Gilcig for Mayor of Cornwall Ontario Election Blog – It’s time for a Door To Door Solicitation By-Law

JG Election 300x250-02  TESTSo you’re working at home; or just chillaxing, or have just put the baby to bed and your silence is disturbed by a doorbell.

It’s a person trying to come in and check your water heater; or someone trying to sell you something; or a religious group looking for new members.

Or worse; it’s a someone with a fraudulent or criminal intent.   In this day and age should we be allowing unsolicited door to door sales in our communities?

When elected I would work towards ending or limiting unwanted solicitations and disturbances by creating a proposed by-law that would force vendors/solicitors to purchase a permit to do so and register what exactly their actions would entail so that we can limit who knocks on taxpayers doors and to help protect the community from possible fraud; especially with our high percentage of seniors and people on fixed incomes.   I also think this by-law should prohibit minors from knocking on doors without adult supervision as it could potentially put them in harms way in this day and age sadly.

We can make a better and safer Cornwall one step at a time.   What do you think Cornwall?  I’d love to get feedback on this proposal.  You can comment below.

While election time is in October.  We can all take steps for change today!
