At this evening’s council meeting, Alex Tyrrell asked mayor Morris Trudeau why the city has hired a law firm to oppose a key access to information request made by this group.
The access to information request in question covers all correspondance between City of Pointe-Claire officials and the provincial government with respect to the PCB spill at 86 Hymus.
This request was submitted last April. The legal firm’s first move was to push back the hearing until the new year.
Why is the city of Pointe-Claire using taxpayer funds to keep key documents secret from homeowners, local residents and environmental groups?
Not a single answer was provided.
