That was Clr. McHattie's quote to The Hamilton Spectator (see it here or buy the print copy), in response to methods of public consultation to gauge Hamiltonians' interest in a casino. The comment seems to be contrasted against Clrs. Farr and Whitehead's efforts to use "robo calls" as they have come to be known, as one tool for gathering public input.
Do you think "robocalls" if used properly, are a good tool to gauge public response to issues?
