With literally nothing of interest to report from this week’s meeting, let’s take this opportunity to gossip about the Ward 2 candidates so far.
Council’s first meeting without Hope; the great Car Concert of 2020; finding the proper Werkliv balance; smelly Southlands water; and much more!
Hope Jamieson’s final council meeting involved a bit of blood, sweat, and tears—plus a little urine in a cup. Also: sucks to your “property values”!
Council is chafing in the muggy summer heat. Not a few councillors and/or mayors and deputy mayors sounded fed up with the rules of council and each other.
Council is back in socially-distant session at the Bunker, and it’s as glorious as you expected.
Council is also moving to get space adjacent to Bannerman Park for a mobile food vendor to lease. Do you hear that, taco trucks?!
