Another survey. How many is this? There were the “community circles” of 2oo6, and the ill fated survey of 2007 where they didn’t get enough respondents and had to go out beating the bushes for warm bodies to participate; and there was the recent vital signs survey [where we taxpayers contributed money for the group to tell us how badly we were doing on the poverty front] and now this one. Good grief.
We encourage you to look at all four versions of this questionnaire [there is one for residents, for businesses, acadia alumni, and acadia students. It is possible of course that you fall into all four categories [in which case you have a lot of questions to answer if you see fit to participate!]
One question in the business survey is:
What 5 words best sum up why Wolfville is a great place to business?[sic]
Ah, a good editor is worth her weight in gold is she not?
You have to be positive – the questions almost force you to be – and you have to give your name [which is another reason not to be negative, otherwise…]
We filled it out until it came to giving our name and address then we bailed. The second to last question rather floored us.
If Wolfville were a famous personality, who should it be?
We thought Ebeneezer Scrooge would be a good answer. After all it is never too late to change.
