Councillor Unable To Explain Position On St. Bernard School Motion

The River Town Times reported that Councillor Pouget was “adamantly opposed to the remainder of the (April 23) motion to ‘authorize administration to move forward with the proposed plans as identified in the confidential report.’”

Pouget said she could not elaborate further but noted she is “very concerned” about the second part of the April 23 motion.

“Unfortunately, because it was one motion, I felt compelled to vote against it,” she said. “Further to that, I am not allowed to explain my position, because it was in-camera.”

Public decisions by elected officials based on in camera confidential information should be cause for concern and no one should be surprised if transparency is questioned.
