It is one thing to be diplomatic, but I think that we should state things the way that they really are.
I wasn't trying to be diplomatic; I was taking a guess.
I don't monitor council's votes or check minutes regularly and if she wants to vote stuff down; well...she can (like anyone else can on council). They all have their reasons for voting as they do.

Ultimately - if growth comes to Halifax; the issue of who voted down what won't really matter; nor will the heights on HbD. If the market forces demand more office/retail or residential in downtown - then they will force the issue on council.

Besides; isn't there an election coming?
