Dear editor, While I generally find your editorial opinions bang-on, I have to take exception with points of your November 8 editorial with regard to banning Derrick Williams. Firstly, our Civic Centre is not a business with the right to ban access to anyone they choose. Our town hall belongs to ALL the taxpayers of this community. It is not there for the enjoyment and benefit of the staff who work within it. Secondly, CAO Dennis Perlin is a civil servant. Effectively, Mr Perlin works for the taxpayers of this community, including Derrick Williams. If he doesn't like the job perhaps he should look at moving to the private sector. I suspect Mr. Williams' outbursts may be born of frustration with the bloated bureaucracy which seems to have been created in Halton Hills. The endgame is not to see how many civil servants Halton Hills can employ, but to serve the constituency in as efficient and cost-effective manner as possible. It's doubtful that the Notice of Trespass would stand a court challenge, and I would be most disappointed if council approved spending any of our tax dollars on pursuing this silly attempt at muzzling Mr. Williams. Don Dagenais, Georgetown
