Bob Harvey didn’t do much of anything this past year; he seems to be just calling it in.
He did makes some noteworthy votes---noteworthy because they were wrong: in favour of the convention centre, for a smaller council, refusing to stop the Washmill underpass dead in its tracks.
Harvey has made a career out of being the wise, elder statesman. That was warranted when he was actually engaged with issues, but increasingly he’s leaving off the engagement part and idling on speechifying about the good old days part.
