This website is called “Open Baie-D’Urfé Ouvert” because it seems to be the only independent and open to everyone place on the internet for sharing information about our town and discussing with our neighbours what it all means. We invite everyone who lives here to read and comment on our posts – and we welcome, and will publish, articles by anyone on any town topic. If you would like to share your thoughts or some information just email it to email@example.com and it will be posted for you.
That’s a bold thing to say. After all, you might want to post something that Citizen Marat disagrees with! Fine, not an issue, this is for everyone and all opinions – that’s why it is Open/Ouvert. Yes, Citizen Marat has his own thoughts on a lot of things but trusts his arguments will speak for themselves – maybe you will be convinced, maybe not, but that’s what democracy is all about. We have created this site because the town has not done it for us – if we cannot share news and information and discuss it openly just how democratic is our community?
If you have not yet found it, there is also a Facebook Group called “Baie-Durfé Notre ville/Our Town” that you can join where you will meet an impressive range of Baie-D’Urfé people with whom you can share and discuss and have conversations about anything from Council policies to dog parks to sports facilities to the colour of the paint on the town hall walls.
