July 22, 2020
A proposed loitering bylaw for Kenora, Ont., was defeated by city council at its meeting Tuesday.
The bylaw lost by a vote of 6-1 with Coun. Chris Van Walleghem casting the only vote in favour.
If passed, the bylaw would have allowed police to ticket people if they were found loitering on public property in the northwestern Ontario city. The ticket carried a fine of $100.
