Ottawa's environment committee changed its name. What else did it accomplish this term?

The city's environment and climate protection committee — the "climate protection" part is new this term — had its last meeting this week before the summer break, and it will meet just once more time before this fall's municipal election.

So it's a good time to ask what the committee and, by extension, city council accomplished. The short answer? Not a ton.

Or, as Coun. Scott Moffatt put it: "We received a lot of reports."

The committee oversees garbage and recycling, water and sewer services, and strategies for improving the environment in general. Here are some highlights — or, in some instances, lowlights — of the last four years.
