Oh! The Irony

Years ago, I helped found the Mississippi Mills Residents Association partly to oppose the Whitetail Ridge (WTR) subdivision. Ironically, on December 20 I was asked to vote on WTR as a new councillor. The actual motion was to approve a list of conditions that the developer has met—the last step in the approval process. I attempted to bring up one issue but was told the time had passed to make changes.

I asked for a recorded vote. (I believe major decisions should have recorded votes and launching a subdivision is major.) The motion passed 8-3, with myself, Val W. and John E. dissenting.
