Opening comments:  More at the end.

The key issue is money in Mississauga and why the Inquiry started, when some Councillors started to follow the money out of City hall.
Fact is that Mississaugans are not being tax enough to cover the bills of infrastructure the City knows it must pay - for more look here.
Billions in the years to come!!!!!!!!!

Councillor Parrish is right about Hazel acting "ingratitude", given the fact the Mayor has mismanaged the money and can't pay for Mississauga's up keep BUT if the Mayor acted any other way, people could start to catch on that something is a-miss.
"confrontational style" - what do you expect from politician who is nick named after a killer Hurricane? 
She has always got what she wants by being bitch and this old dog is not going to learn a new trick.

National Post - Apr. 14, 2010 - By Megan O'Toole -

Parrish scolds McCallion for remarks
'Downright Rude'

In an e-mail to all members of Mississauga council, Carolyn Parrish has sharply chastised Hazel McCallion for her criticism of the federal and provincial governments, and warns the Mayor may have put at risk future funding for the city.

"You should know that most of this council neither shares your ingratitude nor your confrontational style," Ms. Parrish told Ms. McCallion in the e-mail, a copy of which was obtained by the National Post.

It was sent a day after Ms. McCallion greeted a joint federal-provincial infrastructure announcement with heavy skepticism last week.  The Mayor said the $138-million pledged for highway, bridge and road improvements across the province -- including a couple of projects in Mississauga -- amounted to "a drop in a big bucket" and will have little impact on the region's considerable infrastructure needs.

In an e-mail response, Ms. Parrish said she was "embarrassed and ashamed" by the Mayor's public comments.

"Typical of the dozens of senior politicians who have been at the sharp end of your tongue in the past, and hoping to allay the always expected verbal onslaught, Mr. McGuinty began with flattery, calling you 'the most powerful politician in Canada,'" Ms. Parrish wrote, referring to Premier Dalton McGuinty's opening remarks at last week's announcement in north Mississauga.

"Instead of responding with the grace and dignity befitting an experienced and senior politician, you appeared ungrateful, ungracious and downright rude."

Ms. Parrish goes on to question why, after receiving such criticism, the Premier or Prime Minister would choose to deliver more funding to Mississauga in the future. "Although you frequently bemoan the fact that you no longer 'control' council, you do in fact speak for us at events such as yesterday's," Ms. Parrish wrote.

Ms. McCallion would not comment on the e-mail yesterday, but said she planned to address the matter at a council meeting today.

One of the mayor's council allies, Katie Mahoney, has already responded with a e-mail of her own to all members of city council.

In it, she attacks Ms. Parrish's credibility, asking how the criticism of Ms. McCallion can be taken seriously when it comes from a colleague who, as a federal MP, became famous for outbursts that "embarrassed and shamed Canada internationally," including telling former prime minister Paul Martin to "go to hell" after her caucus expulsion and referring to the NATO "coalition of the idiots."

"One of life's early lessons is that people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones," Ms. Mahoney said.

The Ward 8 councillor stood behind the Mayor's criticism of federal and provincial infrastructure funding, pointing to a shortfall that has resulted from "years of downloading, cutbacks to transfers and neglect from senior levels of government.

"Are we then to simply say 'thank you Sir, may we please have some more Sir?'" Ms. Mahoney demands.
