Council mired in secrecy argument

Sewage plant report at centre of argument

Halifax council today is meeting behind closed doors to discuss the forensic audit detailing the cause(s) of the Halifax sewage plant failure. Until now, the audit has been kept from council (see Peter Kelly wears the sewage disaster), and it continues to be kept from the public.

Today's meeting began at 9;30am, and as of 2:30pm, council was still at it. They didn't even break for lunch, instead ordering food in. Rumour has it that council is arguing over whether or not to release the audit to the public.

I'll have updates today as I learn more.
