St. Catharines City Council is open to the idea of offering free pads and tampons at city facilities.

They voted in favour of a motion last night, brought forward by Councillor Greg Miller. He says this is all about economic equity and writing a wrong.

Councillor Joe Kushner was the only one to vote against it.

City staff will put together a report, which will outline their options and how much this could cost.
