Council looks to air meetings

Asked for a report from staff on the pros and cons of providing a live internet feed of its meetings.

It may not be competition for Hockey Night in Canada, or Knowledge Network’s Hope for Wildlife, but Ladysmith council has asked for a report from staff on the pros and cons of providing a live internet feed of its meetings.

If the idea gets the nod, and council does go live, online, they will be up for a ratings war against the Municipality of North Cowichan, which live-streams its meetings in the Wednesday afternoon slot already.
