Incidentally, the Canadian Taxpayers' Federation is now softening their criticism of the deal:
I guess Colin and company would prefer not to be remembered as having been on the losing side...
The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is calling the approval of the contract a mixed blessing because the plants are in major need of an overhaul.
"It looks like a good proposal — what they're offering — but we're just asking for a little bit more in the way of details," Colin Craig said.
A condition of the deal is that Veolia must save the city money.
Edited to add: Turns out Orlikow did vote against it... but Wyatt, of all people, voted for it. And Lillian Thomas missed the vote.
