Vote Results - Council Meeting Wed June 24th

In another marathon meeting with the final vote being taken at 2:16am, Durham Region Council adopted the three reports that describe the incinerator project: Medical Officer of Health on human health impacts, Chief Administrative Officer on the Host Community Agreement with Clarington, and finally the report by the Commissioners of Works and Finance to recommend the entire project forward.

Please take a few minutes to thank those councillors who voted with the public interest as their priority (see the votes marked "Critical!"). The recorded votes are...
