Request Not Demand

Councillor Iain Angus
City Council is taking the phrase "you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" to heart.  They've requested a meeting with the CEO of the Ontario Power Authority over its decision to close the Mission Island Power Plant.  Councillor Joe Virdiramo's original resolution demanded a meeting with the OPA, but that didn't sit well with Councillor Rebecca Johnson.  In the end they decided to change the resolution's wording to request.  City Council is vowing to work with the Provincial Government to ensure the local power plant is converted to natural gas instead of being mothballed.
