During Council’s questions to Muriel, Councillor Shannon Dean took the opportunity to compliment Muriel based on his interactions with her from his “other life” in the not-for-profit community. “I have nothing but good things to say about Muriel,” he said before continuing to describe her as helpful, available, and responsive. He didn’t stop with Muriel; he commented on how “when any of our community members have questions,” the entire Community Services department is “super helpful.” As he spoke, members of the meeting audience were nodding in agreement.
