St. Catharines council approves proposal to offer free feminine hygiene products

The city of St. Catharines will be moving forward with a pilot project offering free feminine hygiene products in the washrooms of some city run public buildings.

While introducing his motion, Councillor Greg Miller championed it as a matter of economic equity and righting a social wrong.

City staff will put together a report outlining available options and the related costs for the project before anything more is done.

Councillor Joe Kushner was the only councillor who did not vote in favour of the motion.
