McCallion blames lapse on staff

Mayor Hazel McCallion seems her usual confident self before giving testimony.

MISSISSAUGA — The tiny reigning queen of this city is resplendent in a beige polyester pantsuit and fuchsia blouse, a sparkling brooch at her throat, and a crown of white curls.

While beneath it all, that famous will of steel.

At 89 — and no mention of Hazel McCallion can be made without her octogenarian accomplishment — Her Worship looks as confident and in control as ever, even as she is being called to task to explain her involvement in the first of two controversial business deals.

McCallion was the final witness in the first portion of a judicial inquiry looking into the goings on at Mississauga city hall.  This was the easy part for the legendary mayor:  The hearing before Justice Douglas Cunningham is examining a deal she signed a decade ago that unwittingly gave a 10% shareholder in Enersource, their hydro utility, a 100% veto that no one on council seemed to know about until seven years later.

The more contentious stage of the $2-million inquiry, expected to begin by the end of the month, will examine allegations the mayor didn’t declare a conflict of interest in a failed $14.4-million city land deal brokered by her oldest son, Peter.

If McCallion is worried about her hard-fought legacy being threatened in the twilight of her career, it certainly didn’t look like it Wednesday.

Ever the politician, she smiled for the cameras as media photographers were allowed to take her picture before the start of her two-hour testimony.

Opting to swear on the Bible, she uttered a forceful “So help me God” before taking the stand and briefly outlining one of the most successful careers in Canadian politics:  Mayor of Streetsville from 1970 to 1973 and mayor of Mississauga since the fall of 1978.

Yet for all her fame as the nation’s longest reigning mayor, McCallion insisted she really has “very limited” powers except for her ability to declare a state of emergency, as she did once during the 1979 Mississauga train derailment.

Instead, the wizened wizard would have us believe she’s not much of a wizard at all.  “We depend on staff to operate the city,” McCallion testified.

It turns out she counts on them to read the agreements she signs as well.

It was the biggest deal the city had ever done:  Back in 2000, when the province deregulated electricity, the city privatized Mississauga Hydro by creating Enersource, with 90% owned by taxpayers and 10% by Borealis, a subsidiary of OMERS, the Ontario Municipal Employees pension fund.

When McCallion signed the complex agreement on Dec. 6 of that year, she said she assumed it was the same version she and her council had agreed to on Nov. 29 and was not told that a clause had been inserted just a few days later giving Borealis an indefinite veto over Enersource management decisions.

The controversial arrangement came to light in 2007 when Councillor Carolyn Parrish — ever a thorn in McCallion’s side — sought to reduce the salaries of Enersource directors, including $32,000 annually to the mayor.  But council discovered there was an unknown veto in the shareholder agreement preventing the move.

“I was kind of surprised that it was so and therefore wanted to know how did it get into the agreement without council or my knowledge,” McCallion testified.

She vehemently disagreed with previous testimony by her former city manager, David O’Brien, who said it was “very probable” he told the mayor about the last-minute veto.

“I have no recollection of Mr. O’Brien telling me about any changes to the agreement,” she insisted.  “I would have said this must go to council for approval.”

But she also admitted not reading the final document before affixing her signature.

“As mayor, I sign many — I think at the last council meeting, there were 34 bylaws in it,” McCallion said, “so if I had to read them all, the agreements wouldn’t proceed for quite a length of time.”

L. Lane you don't get it. O'Brien and McCallion are as close as they come. O'Brien said in his testimony his office and McCallions were connected by a boardroom. They both arrived at the office at 7:30 most mornings and had coffee together. They spoke or met 4 to 5 times a day. He said he probably told her, did everything but come out and said that he told her. McCallion knew about the veto, she just has so little respect for her Council that she didn't feel she needed to get their approval. Ironic that the Mayor's lawyer has her itinerary for that period in Dec 2000 yet when the Commission wanted her schedule for the last few years the office said it never kept a written copy. Come on people, wake up! Can't wait for round two.

I can see them drooling for the cash and loans and grants they can grab once they take control. Mississauga is rich compared to Toronto and they want that Money!

A) David O'Brien was staff.
B) He was supposed to inform the Mayor of any changes or insertions.
C) He did not - or at least never presented any evidence he had.
D) For such an important change it should have arrived by Big Brass Band or at least by the presentation of official document.
E) Great restraint on the Mayor's part for not calling O'Brien a skunk for inserting a clause which directly benefits him and his now oganization.
F) Lastly the outside lawyers yes should also have caught it and caught the weasel who put it in at which point O'Brien should have been bounced for unethical procedure.

So what's the deal - it isn't legal unless O'Brien provides APPROPRIATE proof it was presented by procedure.

L. Lane Report Comment
June 3rd 2010, 1:06pm
With regard to the EnerSource deal - David O'Brien - you got caught! If you had informed the mayor you'ld produce the evidence. Certainly you did not send her a little e-mail or perhaps bury it among drippage of the day. For a change like this you should have approached with a big brass band or at least sent word by a large official document. Too bad her ladeyship would look badly publicly calling you a skunk as you were supposed to advise the mayor as you were considered staff on their side not padding a deal for OMERS.

While all you vultures are ripping and shredding Hazel apart because it is easier than asking the hard questions, I will.
"Who did insert the clause after council approved the original version?"

This is a major gaff on the part of the Mayor, Hazel knows she should have even briefly reviewed this document prior to signing it. The question I have now is did David O'Brien as a former Mississauga employee, conspire with the negotiator for OMERS to place this clause into the agreement. He knew full well that this would have needed to be approved by council as a whole, he was the mayors closest confidaunt, and the potantial that this would cause the city down the road. I find it interesting that Mr. O'Brien now works for OMERS.

@ Old Guy,

Unfortunately, Unions don't exist in the City of Mississauga. The worker staff are bound to the rulings of Senior staff, who at most time have their heads so far up their behinds its not even funny. And when a Senior staff get busted doing something, all blames trickles down to Junior, and the City says "Well, perfect, just fire them".

The last time a Union was attempted to be introduced, a man was threatened with his job, the time before that, a woman was actually fired. She sued the City and won two years salary out of the deal for Wrongful Dismissal.

That City, staff wise, is a JOKE and a slave camp. Unions can be bad, I agree, but Cities like this is what they were designed for.

Get lost Hazel.

Oprah Winfrey Do you own a house? Did you read every single line of your mortgage agreement and purchase agreement? And those are usually only a few pages but the Enersource agreement was probably hundreds or thousands of pages. And you should get your facts straight...Hazel didn't lie about declaring a conflict..she declared it twice before at two different meetings but on the third where the item was deferred she failed to declare it. And the minutes were not changed but were in error when they came out and were confirmed by all members of Council. I really don't think Hazel would risk her entire career by asking for the minutes to be changed since she had already declared it twice before and the matter was not even discussed.

Here we go again,"I'm in charge but I'm not in charge.",how convenient.You're a big shot until you get caught,then it's the staffs fault,you are too simple to understand so you sacrifice yourself by collecting a big pay cheque with perks so those anonymous,behind -the-scenes,real-decision-making(apparently) city employees don't have to.
As Mayor,you don't get to pass the buck,take responsibility,start paying attention to what you are signing.What a bunch of really bogus and transparent bullshit excuses,she should be embarrassed.
She has abused her position and now insults her constituents,yes she is a very nice old lady,so what?Too many free passes over the years.
Her time is up.
Still trying to figure who voted for Parrish and why too.

Typical City of Mississauga really is.

Senior staff in all departments in that City always blame their short comings on the junior staff....yeah yeah, it happens everywhere, but Mississauga is actually very well known fr this, hence their high turnover rate in employees.

I sincerely hope for once a senior member of staff in that City gets gonged off the show for this, and as for McCallion, time step down you old girl, let someone new do the job that you're supposed to be doing yourself, but unfortunately passing off to someone else.

Not reading everything she signs is playing Russian Roulette with the welfare of the City of Mississauga. With all due respect to this lady's successes in her job of Mayor, it looks very much as though she has dropped the ball big time in the two incidents in question. Being Mayor is more than a photo shoot and gladhanding. Perhaps it is time for Hazel to call it a day.
