Mississauga News - May 27, 2010 - By Joe Chin - email@example.com
Former City manager vague in details
Mayor Hazel McCallion may or may not have known about a key provision that gave Borealis unusual veto power, considering the company had purchased only a 10 per cent share of Enersource from the City of Mississauga.

Yesterday's testimony (and it looks like today's too) reminds me of Alberto Gonzales, Attorney General
Quote: "On April 19, 2007, Gonzales testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Gonzales received intense questioning from both the Democratic and Republican members on the committee. Many Republicans on the committee openly criticised the attorney general and his handling of the matter questioning his honesty, competence etc etc etc... With regards to Chiara, Gonzales stated, "Quite candidly . . . I don't recall the reason why I accepted" staff advice etc etc etc... In another interesting exchange, Gonzales stated that he had approved the decision but didn't recall when the decision was made. (''Well, how can you be sure you made the decision?' Mr. Leahy asked."'Senator, I recall making the decision from this -- I recall making the decision,' Mr. Gonzales replied. ''When?' Mr. Leahy responded."'Senator,' Mr. Gonzales replied. 'I don't recall when the decision was made.') Gonzales stated more than 60 times that he "couldn't recall" certain incidents." etc etc. Wait for yesterday and today's Judicial In

The article fails to mention that the veto clause could've been temporary
Article quote: "'There was substantial economic risk that OMERS was taking in this entity from the outset,' Michael Barrack, the lawyer for OMERS, said yesterday. 'Against this backdrop, it would not be unreasonable for someone with that kind of exposure to have a fair degree of control over the enterprise.'” The article fails to mention that the "exposure" was temporary (sorry for being vague here but not quite understanding it) something about a Put. And why was the veto clause also not temporary? (Will cut-and-paste from transcript once available).
