First there was a Committee Of The Whole at 9AM. The presenter for the Community Forests was not present so that did not happen. There was a presentation by Angela Nichols on a Community Courtesy Circle – this was previously presented on this website here.
A School Re-Wilding project by teachers and students of Perley School was brought before council looking for water access. But without a teacher to present it council was unsure of what exactly was being asked for and who was actually doing the asking.
Bylaw 2064, the Smoke and Vape Bylaw came back and it still makes it an offense to light up on any city sidewalk . . .
An Elections Amendment bylaw, 2042-A1,was discussed as well.
