No. Councillors sit on various boards and committees where issues from their outside boards come to council. They have to juggle their views as a councillor against those of a board member and vote as they see fit.

What do you suggest that Catarina do? He cannot abstain. You may disagree with his position on this issue (as I do), but otherwise he's doing what he must do.

When he votes on council he must do so from the perspective of a councillor and for the good of the entire city. Perhaps he feels he is doing that. Slam him if you disagree with his stand as a councillor who is supposed to be looking out for the interest of the entire city but I would like to know what you feel he should be doing.
