CBRM debate

Debate at City Hall these days is around a city charter for CBRM, or lack of debate.

The proposed charter is expected to be introduced in the spring sitting of the legislature, but some council members are upset they haven’t had a chance to debate its contents yet.  They told the Local Xpress they got a two page document three weeks ago which hasn’t been made public and haven’t had a chance to discuss it.

Councillor Kendra Coombes says a two-page document was given to councillors last month and contained some information but no context no detail.
