Amalgamation ‘has to happen’ for Kent and Harrison

'I think that eventually it will happen, should happen, has to happen.'

My answer to last week’s “Question of the Week”:  Should the District of Kent and Harrison Hot Springs amalgamate as a one community?

I think that eventually it will happen, should happen, has to happen. It will happen because over time the two communities will automatically grow together. It should happen because we like and compliment each other.  And it has to happen for financial reasons:  to run two communities side by side would eventually be — perhaps is already — quite a luxury!  So, my answer is “Yes”!
