Councillors criticize McCallion
Several Mississauga councillors, including one of Hazel McCallion's keenest supporters, were critical yesterday of revelations the veteran mayor had participated in meetings involving her son's land deal while it was before council.

One Stop Shopping
McCallion resigning would look like Ken Lay handing the power plug at Enron over to Jeffery Skilling’s. Mulroney was just as surprised finding a 15 year subpoena lurking around with a receipt for 34 Airbuses flying into Malton? Looking out for number 1 son was supposedly to be about fairness on employment and entrepreneurships, not perception

End times in Mississauga
Could be travelling down the path of Vaughan. One VERY BIG eye-opener. Call it a day, Mayor. Resign now.

The End Of An Error
It’ll definitely have lawyers and judges wondering if there’s just been a new legal precedence set in Mississauga. If McCallion run into conflict of interest 3 times without being charged, it’ll just be another unwritten Nandoed era of broken rules

It's really simple for Peter
Since his mother insists she has to be involved in all matters concerning the City, if Peter McCallion wants to do business in Mississauga he needs to persuade Hazel to retire and convince her not to run again. Otherwise, a real conflict of interest, not just the appearance of one, is inevitable because Hazel has already shown that she can't be trusted to absolve herself. According to this story, she's even said so.

Kay kay... let's get this straight
Let's say we-Canadians read in the papers about some Mayor in some corner of the world who's been in power for over 30 years with no viable political challenger during most of that time, with no viable media, no external scrutiny period (zero), who saw that city grow from farm fields and apple orchards to urban sprawl, who has a millionaire-plus developer-son and another with the local police department and who after three decades of playing the insides and outs of policies and by-laws then (quote MissyNews) “defended her actions by saying she could not absolve herself completely from city matters even when they involved her son, adding she believed conflict of interest provisions applied only to council meetings” and those citizens swallowed that, we’d think they are Grade A chumps. But Mississaugans do it. We swallow that “Trust, Quality, Excellence” hook, line and stinker. ZERO DOUBT. Conflict of Interest.

With respect to a former Minister of Industry, Sandra Pupatello’s revelation’s to fraud, misrepresentation , professional negligence and concealing information from the crown, the perception from Mrs. McCallion’s employment and entrepreneurships letter in reference to January 29 2002 were charged in reference to similar various criminal codes http://hansardindex.ontla.on.ca/hansardETITLE/37-2/L056A-52.html#BeginOfTitle
