London City Council has voted to keep audio records of closed sessions.  
Those meetings are held out of public scrutiny to deal with a narrow range of issues allowed under the Municipal Act.  They can include real estate transactions, items of solicitor client privilege, a matter pertaining to an identifiable individual or labour negotiations.  The concern about recording expressed by the minority of Councillors is whether the city could be setting itself up for legal problems down the road if the closed door discussions were released.  Many councils do not keep any records, written or recorded of the private meetings.  The nature of some discussions only come to light if Council brings forward a motion based on the discussion held behind closed doors for a public vote.

The death of a 36 year old man has put the issue of workplace safety back into effect.

Darcy Clancy, who lived in the Walkerton area died this past weekend at Sifto Salt Mine, the world's largest salt mine located in Goderich.

Ontario's Labour Ministry is investigating and the details of his death remain sparse for now.

This is the third death in a decade at the salt mine, which brings workplace safety back into play.

A 61 year old man was killed at the mine in 2011 when a tornado struck Goderich. Two years earlier, a 31 year old man died from asphyxiation after falling into a chute leading to a trench conveyor system. For this, Sifto was fined $140,000.

A Guelph man pleaded guilty in Kitchener court on Monday to a list of crimes: robbery, fraud under five thousand dollars, breaking court orders and refusing to give a breath sample.

Jeff Guanzon, a 31 year old personal trainer has led a life of crime behind his profession including threatening to kill a small business owner if he did not hand over a laptop from the store.

Earlier this year, Guanzon was found driving while impaired and during a vehicle search police found empty beer cans, a black air gun, bullets, several knives, batons and a small amount of methamphetamine.

The court gave Guanzon two years probation, a one year driving ban and a life-time ban on possessing a weapon.
