Who gives a fudge? They do what they want. I’m so fed up at this sad bunch
Nothing shocks me anymore about this “gang” ! They couldn’t organize a birthday party for a 2 year old ! They remind me of the Trump administration, absolutely incompetent !
After tonight’s open council meeting, North Stormont has just voted to hold a closed meeting in person on Thursday 16th of April violating provincial law quoting a that they can ‘use their discretion’ in such matters.
Will there be more than five people present?
Unless the rules have changed the rules for closed door meetings are very loose. And left open to interpretation in a wide degree. I read them a few years back . In theory they could have a closed door meeting to buy a light bulb.
