Hazel brought this inquiry upon all of us
The writer fails to understand that the declaring of a conflict of interest is each elected official's personal responsibility. However, the inquiry is not about the conflict of interest as such. It should be noted that Hazel missed declaring a conflict of interest at DOZENS of meetings where OMERS (son's business partner and city's partner) was being discussed. One this point I do not know how she will wiggle away. Oh bye the way, she herself launched an inquiry years ago and she has been CONVICTED of abusing her office in the past even after she appealed. Now I am ready for your abuse. Fire away.

This letter completely misses the point
The point here is NOT that the Mayor failed to declare her conflict; everyone agrees that was an oversight and not important because there was no discussion of consequence on the matter. What was significant is that someone altered the minutes to record that she had declared a conflict when she had done no such thing. This is a serious breach of the public trust, but sadly the terms of reference for the Inquiry dropped investigation into the matter. We are therefore left to wonder who made the change, whether anyone asked for the change, and most importantly, whether the minutes (sparse as they will be from now on) can be trusted to be accurate.
