Ottawa city council will not be forcing a new design for a proposed addition at the Château Laurier.
A special meeting was held on Thursday to reconsider a motion to pull a heritage permit, which would essentially reset the process for the owners of the building who were awarded the permit years ago.
The motion had been defeated 14-9 at Wednesday's city council meeting.
Thursday's meeting started with a vote to reconsider the motion, which was defeated 13-10. That vote essentially ended the meeting, as no debate could be held on the issue beyond that vote.
There we have it... 10 yays 13 nays. Reconsideration will not happen. It's done.— Jenn Pritchard (@JennnPritchard) July 11, 2019
Cllr @menard got up and walked out. As the crowd shouted shame shame shame.— Jenn Pritchard (@JennnPritchard) July 11, 2019
