 Democracy Is Too Important To Leave To The Politicians
Do Your Civic Duty By Getting Informed and Getting Involved

If you say: " I'm too busy just trying to keep it together to get involved, consider that perhaps, if you were more involved you might not be having so much trouble keeping it together "!

You can view this Council Meeting Agenda here - - -  Agenda .

If you can't attend council meetings in person (preferred) you can watch regular council meetings on Shaw cable channel #4. You can also watch the meetings live on the city website using this link. 

The regular city council meetings are the only ones broadcast live on either Shaw Cable or streaming video from the city website. The Committee of the Whole meetings, while not broadcast live are recorded and can be viewed on the city website HERE.



  1. "The meeting will be reconvened at 7:00 pm for the balance of the agenda, presuming council chooses to go in-camera." What does this mean?! Does a citizen wanting to participate come at 5 or at 7? If he/she comes at 7 and council does not vote to go in camera, the citizen would miss the bulk of the meeting. If he/she comes at 5, then it might be necessary to wait for two hours. What kind of process is this?!

  2. When council meets in an open council meeting, they must vote to go in-camera before proceeding. There has only been one occassion in my memory where a council chose not to go in-camera. In that case the meeting intended to go in-camera was conducted in the open. That is a very rare occurrence. In this case, the meeting agenda scheduled to start at 7:00 pm will begin then in any case. I hope that clears it up.
