Toronto Councillor and Board member Adam Vaughan's comments today sounded promising:
Board members ardently defended Mr. Mukherjee’s recommendation, arguing that the public would be given an opportunity to voice their opinions on a proposed review leader and the terms of reference when the Board reconvenes in two weeks.Given the seriousness of the allegations that have been pouring out (latest - h/t), this review, along with any others to come, has to have integrity. They must know the pressure they are under.
“It’s a been a very tumultuous time in this city and we all need to afford each other patience and an opportunity to proceed fairly. I recognize for some people the need to speak is immediate and urgent and I respect that,” said Board member Adam Vaughan, who is also city councillor for Trinity-Spadina.
“In two weeks, there will be a presentation to the public, for comment, and for input. We have not made a decision. We are telling you how we are going to make a decision and how we’re going to include public input. I recognize that people want to speak. They will speak and they will be heard.”
