Linda Mosher was out was out of commission for a couple of months this year, after having back surgery. She did respond to emails, but she wasn’t attending council meetings or driving around her district doing constituency work.

Still, Mosher was an effective councillor. Her highlight was the council size issue; she understands why it’s important to keep districts relatively small, and is bird-dogging the issue as it passes onto the UARB. I expect over half the council will testify at the UARB hearings, on either side of the issue, but certainly Mosher will have among the most studied opinions. Otherwise, there’s not a lot to report. She appears to have undergone some rapprochement with Debbie Hum, with whom she in the past had a quarrelsome relationship, and her speeches at council are considerably less plaintive, and therefore less annoying, than they once were. She seems to be growing into her position a bit, finding a comfort level that wasn’t there before. Or, maybe she’s just still sore from that back surgery.

How to improve: Remember to lift with your legs.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
