“Most people think the environment is a luxury ... but it’s actually the reverse,” said Capital Ward Coun. Clive Doucet.

“The cities that are really moving fast to create sustainable cities are also getting richer.”

Yesterday, Ecology Ottawa released a voting report card and recognized councillors they considered environmental champions, according to their voting record on key decisions.

As a whole, this city council was indecisive and ineffective, said report co-ordinator Ian Thomson.
