Despite fulfilling her election promise to request that all Markham arena documents be released to the public, Karen Rea presented the same motion that was tabled 18 months ago, yet this time was ruled out of order.
Rea was disappointed her motion was not allowed to be put to a vote at Council, as reported in the Toronto Star:
Rookie councillor Karen Rea, who brought forth a motion to publicly release all documents related to the arena project, admitted that both appeals had been brought forth by her.
“They are both mine,” said Rea, adding that she filed the appeals more than two years ago, and is still waiting. “They have no date on when they will have the decision.”
On Tuesday night a number of delegations beseeched the new council to start the new term with transparency.

I am optimistic that the Ontario Privacy Commission will make a decision to make an order to the City to release the reports to the public… Councillor Karen Rea
