Abstract:

There have been continuing discussions about the system of representation in the Region of Niagara. One criticism is that the area is 'over-governed, ' which usually is meant to suggest that there are too many councillors for the 13 local governments in the area. Another point of continuing discussion has to do with the method of selection of the regional chair. The chair is currently selected by regional councillors at the first meeting of each new council, while the chairs of some other regions are directly elected by the population.
