Wherein this blog gets to back civic matters in Burnaby, and our mayor and councillors get back to some decision-making after the holidays (alright, they did that last week, too. I’m the one who wasn’t on the ball last Monday. My apologies, folks.)
I’ll be live-blogging/tweeting tonight’s meeting but I should add that I’ll be doing so while alone at home with my seven-year-old son. So if I post “Mayor Derek Corrigan says YOUNG MAN PUT THAT DOWN RIGHT NOW OR YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT HAVING ANY ICE CREAM!” it probably means my two worlds collided.
It should be noted that I’ve never known our mayor to deny anyone ice cream in council chambers. As far as I know you can’t eat in there, but I imagine if someone brought ice cream to a council meeting the mayor would simply ask that they bring enough for all the councillors and delegates, and serve it outside the chamber.
There – the promise of a riveting night of civic live-blogging, and an imaginary account of a council meeting with treats for all. Really, what more can Burnaby residents ask for?
OK, OK, I promise actual real-life content next time.
Until tonight, then!
