The meeting will be livestreamed by SooToday starting at 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Whereas on February 28, 2017 an apparent carbon monoxide leak at the W.J. McMeeken Centre caused several users of the arena to become ill; and

Whereas City Council must be assured that any threat to public safety is investigated;

Now therefore be it resolved that staff report to council at the next City Council meeting as to how carbon monoxide is monitored at all city-owned buildings, and if the cause of the February 28, 2017 W.J. McMeeken Centre carbon monoxide leak has been determined and rectified.
