Although Mayor Keith Hobbs spoke out against closed door meetings during the election campaign; Thunder Bay city council's first official meeting was delayed because of a closed session. The meeting started almost two hours late because of a meeting behind closed doors. Councillor Brian McKinnon called the meeting to order around 8:15 and said they didn't want to be behind closed doors but the discussions were needed. McKinnon says it was necessary and had to be done.
