A Vancouver city councillor has responded to the city manager's blocking of her motion by hiring a lawyer.
Councillor Adriane Carr says Penny Ballem exceeded her jurisdiction when she quashed Carr's request for the financial details of a plan to pool the resources of the city's 20 volunteer run community centres.
"This is a matter of who's in charge of city hall -- the city manager? Or city council?"
Carr says she will hold a press conference on Tuesday at city hall with her lawyer to provide further information.
