Frequent Bulldog contributor The Voter weighs in on city council procedure:
One of the things that needs to be stopped is the ability of the mayor or a councillor to walk items onto the council agenda that have not had some kind of valid public consultation process.
There are very, very rare items that have an extreme urgency to them that need a rapid response from council. Even in those cases, there is no excuse for the background information not being publicly released a minimum of three days before it appears at a council meeting.
If you go to the city website to check out the workshops, they don’t provide any information about the bylaw or the review. I guess they don’t want you arriving knowing anything in advance.
