>>> BREAKING NEWS!
Well, the hot news this week is that the bylaw re Evelyn Drive
introduced Monday night (6th) and 'passed', actually didn't. You
will recall that G-J absents herself for Ev Dr matters b/c of
perceived conflict of interest. Cclr Day had not yet returned
from FCM in Nfld. JF and VD voted in favour, Sop and JC voted

ahead with bylaw readings and Public Hearing.
What's this I hear?
An OCP bylaw requires a majority of Council.
A majority of Council, not a majority of the votes of council
A majority of Council is four, that bylaw introduction, etc.,
'passed' with only three.
Back to square one.
What will they do?

completed them. This issue, WVM 19, will seem like a jump but
Evelyn Drive devt demanded an even wider distribution. My hope
is to play some catch up in the coming weeks. Gardening however
