Mississauga News - Dec. 17, 2009 - Letter by Linda McClennan, Mississauga

Wake up, councillors

Dear Editor:

What angers me the most about (Mayor Hazel McCallion’s) purported conflict of interest charges by the seven members of council is that they must have been sleeping on the job, both during the incident and the approval of the minutes.

They all knew of Peter (McCallion’s) and Hazel’s association, and the fact that her son was involved professionally with the developer.

Having sat on forums before, (I know) if you have firsthand knowledge of any conflict of interest, you call the person on this fact when voting on an issue, if that individual does not declare this conflict at voting time.

So, why after the fact, due to the Group of Seven’s inaction, does the public have to foot a $2.5 million bill?

What a waste of our money in this economic climate. Wake up councillors (and) quit playing political games with our money.

Thank Councilor Parrish.........!!!!

Ms.McClennan, you may notice that Carolyn Parrish is one of the first timers on the City Council. It may not be easy to challenge decades-old, powerful, corrupt, “system” at the City Hall. May be some of the councilors have limited moral standing to question such corruption (for instance, it was all over the media that Councilor Eve Adams was engaged in malpractices during her last election). Again not-declaring the C-of-I by mayor is not the main issue. Perhaps we may thank councilor Parrish for her courageous leadership to “fight for the people”.

Welcome to Oz

Remember the old cartoon jingle The world of Oz is a funny funny place Where everyone wears a funny funny face And the streets are paved with gold And no one ever grows old In that funny funny place Called the world of Oz So naturally, if the streets are paved with gold, the potholes must be filled appropriately

To Think About It.

That video at: is something huh? The creator subscribed to MISSISSAUGAWATCH YouTube and I surfed over and had a peek at his material. I still say that it could've been an error on the part of the television station. But still. Given the lack of compliance to policies on the part of Mississauga staff, I'm not at all confident in the voting/election system they have in place. Like I keep sayin'. MYTHissauga has an infinite capacity to pervert.

Not a waste

Hi Linda. I agree with everything you wrote right up to your question. The fact that you asked it indicates to me that you don't know or have misunderstood the terms of the inquiry. The Mayor's "failure to declare" (which I happen to think is a minor incident of no consequence) is not what the inquiry is about. It is investigating the mysterious and rather stinky changes to the Enersource agreement, and the relationship between World Class Developments (Peter McCallion's company) and OMERS and the City. The former arises at least partially out of changes to the Enersource contract that were never seen let alone approved by Council, and the latter from the discovery that the Mayor attended meetings that involved the financial interests of both her son and the City. (See That's why the money has to be spent.

The responsibilities of elected office

Do not worry; there will be enough blame to go all around. The Inquiry is in large part to sort whose actions were deliberate, whose were negligent, whose were irresponsible and, who were just plain inattentive; or as you said in your letter, sleeping on the job.
