Shut your trap if you want to get anywhere on city council.

That, according to River Coun. Riley Brockington, is life for municipal politicians in Mayor Jim Watson’s city hall.

Brockington, a second-term councillor, aired some of the dirty laundry after council on Wednesday voted on the membership of committees and board and appointed leaders.

“This is more about building an insulated coalition to ensure that there isn’t the type of debate and discussion that we need to see here,” Brockington said.
