When Lisa Helps announced on New Year’s Day that she would seek another term as mayor of Victoria, I resolved to take a more in-depth look at what city council had been up to since the previous election.

While vaguely aware of the existence of a council webcast, I had never bothered to check it out before. Within a couple of clicks, however, I was at the city’s website and a couple of clicks after that I was watching my first city council meeting.

Little did I realize the treasure trove of comedy I was about to unlock.
