Bylaws for a 16 Unit Apartment Project at 1591 Bowser Avenue made for good theater. Some councillors say there is consensus from the electorate to have a pause on development and some say that a pause is the wrong thing to do.
Some quotes of note from the meeting;
"We should not be advancing any development proposals until after that meeting (a phased implementation plan meeting on January 21st)." - Counc. Muri
"To make a blanket statement of, "I'm not willing to support" prior to a matter would indicate a prejudice and perhaps a closed mind". - Counc. Bassam
"I'm calling for a pause and I believe the electorate supported a pause". - Counc. Hanson
"We can't just stop in mid progress".- Counc. Hicks
"We can't just stop the boat in the middle of the ocean". - Counc. Bond
"It's not prohibition, it's phased development so her (Counc. Muri) mind is in fact open".- Counc. MacKay-Dunn
