One approach: Take a draft by-law initially intended to address the issue of “nuisance parties”, an issue that is especially challenging in two wards, and turn it an impractical omnibus by-law requiring a permit to exercise Charter Rights in the city. Then bring it to council, after public feedback suggests it shouldn’t have left the drawing board.
(Which, from the start, is where I said it should have stayed, until it was teased apart.)
Then, reveal that you perhaps(?!) didn’t understand what you’ve just heard from the delegations speaking against it.
More comment to follow.
