A controversial Halal abattoir that pitted the Muslim community against some southwest residents was unanimously approved by council Tuesday night. Neighbours had voiced displeasure over the proposed slaughterhouse at 8076 Longwoods Rd.

Another dozen submissions were added to the council agenda on Tuesday. Coun. Anna Hopkins, in whose ward the abattoir is located, said she worked hard to understand the “complex” zoning situation for the site, ultimately amended to allow the abattoir.

She said she heard community concerns “loud and clear,” but had to support and protect agricultural land. “If anyone wants to know what sprawl looks like, it’s this. It’s country and city colliding in my ward,” she said.
