"Ms. McCallion opened the floodgates of development,", better the rest of Mississauga suffer than Hazel's home town.

Would-be politicians scared to seek election
Mississauga News - Sept. 20, 2006 - Wed. - Was the "Missing" News trying to SCARE away candidates in an election where there is the genuine chance of more then one new face on City Council and really up-setting the status-quo and no more business as usual.  One thing is for sure the Mississauga News should never have tried to "call" the election even before the filing deadline has pasted - it can easily be seen as an effort to keep people from running as it would be futile to even try!   BUT more importantly they fear to even anger Hazel McCallion by running against her!

McCallion takes another jab at region
Mississauga Business Times - Sept. 21, 2006
- Thur. - Even the business community wonders about the Mayor's obsession with separating Mississauga from Peel - "Now McCallion isn't advocating city state status for Mississauga, or dare we say it, a virtual dictatorship, but her ongoing battle to remove her city from the Region of Peel continues unabated."   "Does she have the energy to continue the struggle?"

Wrong message - Letter to Editor
Mississauga News - Sept. 27, 2006 - Wed. - Letter to Editor by Roy Willis, about the article by Joe Chin "Would be politicians".  The Mississauga News knows Roy Willis is a candidate for Mayor and usually that would mean the media should not publish letters by a candidate during an election as it needs to be seen as impartial and not giving any candidate greater media exposure.  In this case they leave off the fact he is a candidate and print his letter really fast.

Mississauga has changed enormously in the past decade, and now sits at a very important crossroads in its development.  As the city transitions from a suburban to an urban community, sound political leadership is needed, which makes this election especially significant."

councillors and city planning staff blew it big-time "!  But who listens to the best idea these days?  For the Toronto Star to print this letter proves the media is rebelling against the Queen of Sprawl - Hazel McCallion.  It also shows the media supports another candidates ideas for the future of Mississauga!

Going head-to-head with Hazel
Toronto Star - Nov. 2 - 06 - A prime example of how the Toronto Star campaigns for Hazel McCallion by failing to report her failures, miss-deeds and out right evil acts.  This article clearly shows how a reporter (or editor) will NOT report what they knows as it will hurt McCallion's chances for re-election and how the facts are not presented or false information about the Mayor's challengers is - to defame them and keep the voters asleep - Soviet style journalism that Hazel McCallion loves to talk about so much.

So if I ask questions in open session on (cable) television, I have a right to do so,"  What a great article not only does it document how "Simmering tensions between Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion and newbie Councillor Carolyn Parrish erupted at council", as it has often been said that Councillor Parrish "a former MP rumoured to have ambitions for her {the Mayor's}seat." but also notes the way the Mayor has kept a lid on how business is done at City hall AND that the TV cameras play role in Council power plays.  Who says I make these things up?
