Also as usual check out question period for more amusement.This was one of the most painful meetings I have had to sit through in years and while I like George Anderson as a person some of his comments last night baffled me. Once you have listened to Georges Comments i.e.; we need a staff report on declaring water a human right to see what the ramifications would be, then check out his letter to the editor. Very amusing

Councillor George Anderson - Letter to the Editor “As a city councillor it is my job to make evidence-based decisions, not decisions based on just my moral beliefs. There is a place for morality, but evidence should always supersede.”
I beg to differ; Hitler & Stalin could offer all the evidence needed to commit the atrocities they did and we saw what the result was. Even in the debate around Smart Meters in BC, if you listened to the evidence of BC Hydro one would think they are great, we have seen how well that one has gone.Morals can and should play a big part in decision making.
