Conflict of interest questions at Moncton city council

There’s a debate these days among members of Moncton City Council as to whether one of them has a conflict of interest.

CBC reports Deputy Mayor Blair Lawrence’s wife Diane Ross is Chair of the Library Board. She is also opposed to a proposal to move the library across the street to the former Moncton High School.

There are two proposals for the old school building now. One from Moncton Rennasaince which wants to turn it into a arts and culture centre with the library as a major tenant. The other is from a private developer.
