Council votes 8-7 against secondary suite reform
''If this fails today, we're done ... I'm done, frankly."
So was the sentiment of Mayor Naheed Nenshi earlier this week prior to council voting 8-7 against a reform plan for secondary suites in the city.
The mayor, expressing frustration at the tedious talks, followed up by saying if secondary suites showed up in council again, he'd leave the room until it came time to vote.
Ward 7 Coun. Druh Farrell, meanwhile, likened the entire process to "giving birth to a chair."
