cityslikr at All Fired Up In the Big Smoke makes an interesting observation:
At last night’s meeting, every one of the councillors who ultimately voted against giving the mayor the power to deep six the last remaining members of the TCHC board rose to speak, question or give a motion or amendment. To make a public pronouncement about why they were going to vote the way they did. They weren’t all barnburners or crowd pleasers. But they stood up and let those attending the meeting, the press, their constituents back home, all know their opinion on what was happening.
It’s a good point. I find the councillors who never speak in support of their votes to be incredibly disappointing.
