Canadian Urbanism Uncovered

Just ask Jennifer Keesmaat! She famously commented (after leaving City Hall) that you can’t get ANYTHING done without having one. It is a way to avoid doing something that might have to be changed or ended.

    This sounds like a perfect “pilot” project. It might even be fine tuned by allowing councilors to “trade” blocks of time with other councilors if the former have less needs than the latter. It might just encourage councilors to think twice (or three times) before asking a a delay. I mean a “report”. Save allotment just in case you need extra sometime might be something they would try.
