Is an Urgent Motion Without Notice Planned?

Is an urgent motion without notice planned for the July 2012 Toronto City Council meeting?

  • "Tug of war over Toronto Zoo elephants continues", 20-Jun-2012
    "Should the zoo management find reason to keep the elephants in Toronto, the two councillors [Scarborough councillors Glenn De Baeremaeker and Michelle Berardinetti] said they're preparing a motion for the July meeting of Toronto Council to ensure that the transfer goes ahead."
  • Toronto Sun: "Berardinetti asks council to approve summer elephant transfer", 5-Jul-2012
    "Councillor Michelle Berardinetti said she will be asking councillors at their July meeting to lock in the transfer of the elephants to a California sanctuary this summer."
  • Agenda of City Council Meeting, July 11-12, 2012
  • However, the Agenda for the July 11-12, 2012 Toronto City Council meeting does not appear to contain any motion in regards to the Elephants. It is unclear whether Councillor Berardinetti or Councillor Baeremaeker or another Councillor may propose an urgent motion without notice as was done on October 25, 2011.
