Who Needs Councillors
The Mayor and Administration do not take them seriously so why should we. We already have a single Voice of Council so who needs 10 more! And some Councillors agree too:
- "Some (councillors) were arguing against access to information."
Thus a Councillor was given a choice to look at it or not.
Apparently there was a huge outburst against even doing that and a Motion was introduced NOT to do so.
Interestingly, if the Mayor had voted to make it a 5-5 tie, the Motion would have been defeated. Now only he knows the PLANs amongst the elected officials even though
- "There are about 30 copies of the plan circulated among the city's executive directors, general managers and few others, including the mayor, Reidel said."
Anyway, who needs Council. Get rid of it! And if anyone dares speak out, the Principal will make them stay after Council and write lines:
- "If you got a problem with one person and think someone is a leak, then deal with that person. But don't put the whole group on detention."
