This will certainly add fuel to the city of Vancouver’s hotly contested civic election, which will be held on November 15th.

Vision Vancouver mayoral hopeful Gregor Robertson Thursday called for an emergency council session to allow public debate on reports the city will loan $100 million to developers of the troubled Olympic Village.

He also challenged Coun. Peter Ladner, mayoral candidate for the Non-Partisan Association, to spill what he knows about the deal, apparently made at an in-camera meeting on Oct. 14.

Ladner is chairman of the city’s finance committee.
