A motion by Coun. Roger Caranci to hear opposition to proposed by-laws regulating and limiting the construction of drive-throughs in London (PDF) drew cheers from a capacity crowd in Council Chambers last night whose own purposes as social participants contradict Coun. David Winninger's contention that drive-throughs "don't serve any useful social purpose." Apparently neither do Couns. Winninger or Judy Bryant, who responded to the applause by declaring that "we're in a dangerous situation right now" and leaving the room. Bryant also left unclear whether the danger lay in capacity numbers or in a demonstration of public opposition to the Planning Committee's agenda, but as committee chair her departure forced postponement of the meeting to a later date when, it might be hoped, the passage of time and the annoyance of repeated attendance might defer public attention.
