For the last time before the Christmas break, city council will sit down Monday for their monthly meeting, but they're getting a bit of a warning from the council speaker.
Councillor Frances Nunziata sent a letter home with her fellow councillors on Friday asking them to be nicer to each other. Especially after the goings-on during the last meeting.
It's a 3-page memo titled: "Conduct in the Chamber"
In it, she says, "I have been approached by several members of council about the disruptions that occurred at the November meetings of city council. Disruptive, disrespectful and unparliamentary behaviour reflects poorly on city council, and undermines public confidence in our ability to govern."
In November's meeting, Mayor Ford was stripped of most of his powers and there were several tense moments, including Mayor Ford accidentally knocking councillor Pam McConnell over.
Nunziata's memo also stated, "Members are responsible for: speaking respectfully at all times; listening and participating in the meeting, without disrupting the proceedings; using appropriate language; abiding by council’s decisions; obeying rulings and decisions; obeying the Members’ Code of Conduct; sitting and being silent during a vote"
