Well you can really tell that the media is trying to keep a story going when this kind of story gets run.
Here is a news flash, they cut my head off and put it on the body of a fly for God's sake and who cares?
You think is a bad picture of Hazel, I have seen one the Toronto Star ran a couple years back, where she like she was over 100 and just be hit and dragged around by a pick-up truck.  If I find it - will post it.

We all know that the media loves to use pictures of politicians that they think best serve to illustrate their actions, the story etc. - not what the politicians would want. 

These are the kind of supporters that are the reason we are in this mess today!

Photo demeaning to McCallion

Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion.
{ this the kind of picture Hazel supporters want used - it was not }


Re:A sad picture of wilting glory, Oct. 3

Mean and nasty!  Your coverage of Mayor Hazel McCallion's conflict-of-interest case was utterly ruthless and bitter, right from the negative headline to the callous extreme close-up.  I have never lived in Mississauga, but have long admired and respected Hazel McCallion.  She has always been outspoken, has answered media and political opponents straightforwardly.

Since she had declared a conflict of interest when the question of zoning came up, and since there is little doubt that parties involved and most voters in Mississauga knew Peter McCallion was her son, and that he was in business there, should she really be expected to remind the councillors at every meeting?  Would that corporations be held to the same standard.

You have performed merciless and disgraceful character assassination of a woman with a hitherto unblemished reputation for honesty and openness throughout a 30-year career in politics.  You should be heartily ashamed.

How dare you print that undignified picture of Hazel McCallion, one of southern Ontario's finest politicians with an unmatched track record for accomplishments and longevity.  Certainly you have a better file photo in your archives.

Sharlene Shaw, Toronto

Rarely have I witnessed such a vicious and demeaning photograph accompanied by an equally spiteful and derogatory headline.  Whoever okayed this photo is complicit in the debasement of a woman who, to many people, is the embodiment of an indomitable human spirit.
