Why is there no mention in the agenda and minutes of the June 26 planning committee of the crucial vote on the Chateau Laurier addition before this morning’s Ottawa City Council that will make the final political decision on this issue of great civic and national importance?
Why have the audio minutes not been posted on the city’s YouTube page on the critical planning committee decision one hour prior to the crucial city council vote today approving the measure that would give city staff the final decision on the Chateau decision?
The Bulldog, hopelessly, calls for the vote at city council on this vital decision to be delayed until the public can be properly informed of the planning committee work of June 26.
Why, given the rushed nature of the decision on the Chateau Laurier addition and the height and zoning legislation, are Ottawa City Council, planning committee and city staff acting as an autocracy rather than a democracy?
The mayor and most of the councillors on Laurier Avenue do not grasp these most basic governmental concepts or are choosing to ignore them.
