Recount Resolution Warranted

Council should pass a resolution requiring a recount of the votes cast, given that Leo Meloche was declared deputy mayor by only four votes.

Council could have passed bylaws regarding:

  • Recounts
  • Ranked ballots
  • More accessible voting methods by mail or telephone

but the traditional and costly voting method prevailed.

While passing bylaws would be prudent, a recount would be the most accountable and transparent way to instill confidence in the counting of the votes; what is there to lose?
