This a letter I wrote to the media and sent to many in the GTA area - will any print, yet to be seen.
Really interesting how a woman who has no campaign is claiming it could be damaged.

Non-Candidate worries her
non-existent re-election campaign
in MYTHissauga harmed by thorough Inquiry
- maybe this was to run at the beginning of April.
That’s right, a person who has not even filed to be a candidate for the Mayor’s seat is concerned about the bad press or the “”smoke and dust thrown up" by the media's coverage of the inquiry”, that could hurt, (more than her own actions), her chances at being the Mayor of Mississauga again. If so, why has she not filed the nomination papers by now, to at least show confidence in her own chances at re-election? Surely, one of the highest paid politicians in Canada can afford the filing fee and even if she couldn’t, wouldn’t her “Friends” be able to help her out? Maybe when it was reported that her son has not paid income tax for years it was an indication of very serious hard times in the McCallion family.
Will Mississaugans be asked to elect the Mississauga Rattler because she needs the money?
It was asked that the “Mississauga judicial inquiry to be postponed if it's going to run into the municipal election period”, says the Mayor’s lawyer, so who should we believe, a lawyer or a politician? How odd, from a Mayor who says she campaigns all the time, brags she doesn’t have to campaign during elections and often isn’t even in the country! The real question is, how can a woman who doesn’t do election campaigning, rightfully claim an inquiry into the way her family does business, could undermine her efforts?
One thing is for sure, Mississaugans will not see the feisty old Mayor doing door-to-door canvassing of Mississauga’s sprawling residential areas. Maybe it is official now - the Mayor of Mississauga, Hazel McCallion says this Inquiry is about the effort to prevent her from being re-elected or a political means to an end - hers! That the 89-year-old Mayor thinks putting off for months (when waking up each day is never a sure thing), is a good thing - for her, but does this tactic serve justice?
It’s enough to make you hit a bottle of bobblehead wine, vintage Hazel in a bottle that goes through you like a hurricane and leaves you nodding.
