A collection of downtown business representatives, planning experts and other concerned citizens issued a public letter urging Halifax council to reject the proposed Skye Halifax development. That proposal calls for two 48-storey towers at the corner of Hollis and Sackville Streets, and it has already been rejected by city staff because it violates HRM By Design's guidelines. The developer, United Gulf, is asking council to change the rules, and today, Tuesday, Halifax council will decide whether to open up that matter to a public hearing.

As usual, reporter Tim Bousquet be live-blogging the council debate via twitter, @Tim_Bousquet, starting at 1pm. You can also view the live-blogging below.
