City Council Roundup: Dec 11th
The December 11th City Council Meeting saw a demonstration calling for a ceasefire in the Israel-Palestine War. Discussions ensued on a letter to the federal government. Surprisingly, residents also called for a continuation of a local tax for a Climate Change Fund. Probably the only time you will hear of a group of citizens asking for a city to continue a tax they were considering suspending. Council coverage ends with a look at the governance of Metro Vancouver, New Westminster's role in it and how and why it might need to change.
