I want to thank and apologize to those who attended last night’s meeting. Your attendance was noted by Council, so it was not a wasted effort, though you must be very frustrated.
The decision on Harry Jerome was deferred until a later date (date to be announced). The Motion by Counsellor Hu deferred the decision as the in-camera session following the open Council meeting was to discuss matters concerning Harry Jerome that could influence the final decision. These matters included financing, Harry Jerome Lands, legal advice and contract negotiations as noted by Mayor Buchanan at the very end of the meeting.
No one knew about this Motion in advance, including other Counsellors, City staff and the audience.
We hope we can count on your support. The North Shore Aquatics Society will continue to do what we can to help Council make the right decision – a 50 metre pool.
Linda Sullivan, President
North Shore Aquatics Society
