Mississauga News - Sept. 22, 2009 - By ?

Mayor made bad call

Conflict of interest Pronunciation: ‘kän-”flikt 1: a conflict between the private interests and the official or professional responsibilities of a person in a position of trust

It’s a definition with which Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion should be familiar.  After all, she was found guilty of breaching conflict of interest laws shortly after she became mayor of this city.

Despite the mayor’s post-trial antics claiming she’d been vindicated — arms raised high over her head, fingers forming a V — the judge found her guilty of a bona fide error in judgement that contravened conflict of interest statutes.

Guilty as charged.

Recent events, however, have found the mayor in the eye of another storm of conflict of interest controversy, this time involving a land deal being brokered by her son, Peter McCallion, a commercial realtor.

Another land deal, another conflict of interest accusation, another municipal issue during which the mayor declared a conflict, then proceeded to become involved with the issue at hand, blatantly ignoring the statute’s clearly defined guidelines.

McCallion attended at least two meetings, both before and after she declared her conflict at City Council, about the deal her son was trying to close, a deal that would have put money in Peter McCallion’s pocket had it been successfully completed.

However, instead of topping up his own coffers, Peter simply jeopardized his mother’s — the mayor’s — reputation and career.

Peter, however, is not an elected official and has no obligation to Mississauga residents.  The mayor is and does.

While the mayor insists she has been dreaming of a downtown hotel and convention facility since long before her son became entangled in the same pursuit, her ability to expedite that dream has now been compromised by the public perception she might put her son’s interests ahead of the city’s.

At the very least, McCallion has exercised extremely bad judgement, and it doesn’t look good on her.

No kidding, eh, DeValera?

When Iannicca nando'd all over Hamilton-Smith, MissyNews called for Iannicca's resignation. McCallion doesn't just fail to disclose a Conflict of Interest regarding a $14,000,000 land deal but one that involves her son. AND--worst of all, the minutes are cooked so it looks like she did and all we get is "At the very least, McCallion has exercised extremely bad judgement, and it doesn’t look good on her." I've been saying this for over two years. McCallion is above the law.

Looks worse on us for not getting more concerned

Looks bad on her? Certainly. Looks worse on us collectively as this issue is "not a problem" and few care.
