The Coast's live-gramming of Halifax Regional Council continues with a presentation from Wanda Thomas Bernard and more.

The best way to learn about what happened at council this week is to head over to The Coast's Instagram and watch the 07/07 Council highlight on our profile. That way you can interact with the story as it's told: swiping up on articles and giving feedback in real-time.

But if you're here, you're here. Enjoy.


The first reading of the report on backyard suites passed. A public hearing will have to take place before the bylaw amendments can come into effect.

Councillor Zurawski's motions about officially saying no to nuclear weapons (this is not a joke) passed, as well as asking for a staff report to look at sending some councillors to the now-postponed IPCC COP 26 conference. It passed.
