Patrick Mendes (the author) is running for council in Ward 10
Patrick Mendes is a Bonnie Crombie buddy running against Sue McFadden, to name a few Liberal buddies runnning there, to make sure that Sue McFadden stays put and outa Crombie and Delaney's hair or face as an opponent. Too bad Mendes isn't up front enough to tell us in his letter on this blog post anyway. ....... just what we don't need more of at City Hall. Yep, ' we need councillors who stop playing politics.' Which leave Patrick outa the loop.

Hazel McCallion Scandal Annoys Hazel Fans Who Feel She Is Above The Law
Erase to your hearts content and I will keep coming back to add more. She admits to wrong doing. She admits to wrong doing. Read the Star article from Sept.30/09. How did penniless Peter get a deal with blillion dollar investment company OMERS? Why was Hazel directly the land deal? What details on in the secret settlement worth millions? What staff at the City SURPRESSED information? What City Manager knew the details but kept it from Council for months? How did staff try to get exempt from the Inquiry? Yeah there are no issues here. Mantis, SNAP, CR or whch ever McCallion you are deal wiith the above.

Hazel McCallion Scandal Rocks Mississauga
Mendes is sad lad that cannot read the Hazel McCalllion scandal in every newspaper except the Sun??? It was even carried by he French CBC but Mendes soldiers on. He will not let facts or reality dent his world of la la la. We best add his name to the succide watch. He was a speaker at the Friends of Hazel rally. I doubt he will put that on his resume this Fall.

?@ Big E. we can't chance losing a progressive councillor
You wrote, "Actually we need councillors that will GOYA and challenge the mayor in this election, not further down the road when their personal win is a sure thing." McCallion's invincible. Above the Law and invincible. There is nothing --nothing, that would prevent Mississaugans from voting for her. I have Nando Iannicca on record saying that no matter what, when it comes time for voters to put an X beside a name they think only of their pocketbooks. Doesn't matter who, it's political suicide. I don't think that even Stephen Harper could beat her. That means a councillor that you'd cheer for going up against McCallion WILL lose and that means we also will lose that councillor. I sure don't want ANY of the good ones to take that chance. As for the other Four?... they'd never challenge since they give the Mayor unqualified support.

'Let me tell you folks'
@Mantis 07/10/10 - 1:56:37 PM Get your head out of you know what and go read the terms of reference for the inquiry. The conflict of interest is a minor point. The whole premise of the inquiry is to make recommendations not only on who may have committed a misconduct or had a conflict but also on what should be included under the conflict of interest rules going forward. This is about good governance. I agree that you should be judged on the rules that were in play at the time of your actions when it comes to conflict, common law, fiduciary responsibility, etc. Stop trying to take attention away from really happened here.

A lot of posts have been deleted here; I guess Mendes and the Mayor's supporters found them offensive. Democracy stymied in Mississauga again. The truth hurts doesn't it? By the end of this inquiry everyone will know the truth and the voters will decide.

So when's the future start?
Actually we need councillors that will GOYA and challenge the mayor in this election, not further down the road when their personal win is a sure thing.

This fellow (mendes) doesn't follow the progress of the inquiry or doesn't read this newspaper. The inquiry has already been uncovered so many information on the corruption (involving millions of dollars) and nepotism at the city hall by Hazel McCallion and her cronies.
