Amalgamation

The Town of Walkerville election notice in the December 6, 1934 issue of the Walkerville News.

The ballot included a vote on Amalgamation with the Border Communities, the Walkerville News was urging all eligible voters to turn out and to vote “NO” on amalgamation.

Oddly enough the town of Riverside was included in the vote but didn’t become part of Windsor until 1965, three decades later. In Walkerville the votes were as follows:

YES – 641
NO – 2535

3176 out of the nearly 5000 eligible voters, voted (about 63%). It was 4 to 1 against in Walkerville, Windsor voted 5 to 1 in favour, East Windsor voted 2 to 1 in favour, and for whatever reason, the issue did not appear on the ballot in Sandwich.
