At this coming Monday evenings council meeting, the people whom many of my regular readers consider are the council members in white hats. Will have a chance to prove how much they are above the ongoing crap that is getting thrown at them by the people with the black hats locally.
The following is the full version of Robert Swayze’s Integrity Commissioners report. In response to a complaint brought before him by Chadwick stooge Dick Hill (author of “Blogging Vigilantes” and other “concerned citizen” black hat ass kissing letters to various editors). Council will be asked to receive the following report:
Apparently Deb got her own legal advice and her lawyer said that she was not in any conflict.
Deb and the “White Hat” council members have a problem on their hands here. If they vote (Deb will excuse herself) not to receive the report. I can hear the Chadwick, Lloyd and a couple of my commenters howls of indignation now. Saying things like “They are no better than the previous council”. It will have the appearance of being hypocritical.
If they vote to approve the report, Deb is then ham strung on voting on any issue that gets brought before council which involves any company that advertises through Corus Entertainment. That’s a lot of companies locally, and will translate into a lot of issues that she will end up not being able to vote on. If she does vote, she risks being taken to court, or deal with continual nuisance conflict claims by people like the idiotic Dick Hill or any other puppet the black hats put forward.
For what its worth here is how I would deal with this nonsense – Before Deb excuses herself from the proceedings, she should make a statement before council as follows:
I have taken my own legal advise on the following item being brought before council. My lawyer has advised me that I am not in any conflict in this matter.
Because I fundamentally agree with the roll that the integrity commissioner has within the framework of our local form of governance, I would like to excuse myself from the following vote and also hope that my colleague’s on council accept Mr. Swayze’s report.
I am in the process of setting up a meeting with Robert Swayze to seek his advice on how I can continue with my current career path with Corus Radio Barrie and also be an effective member of this council. This may or may not include a written submission from my employer with a detailed list of my current duties and accounts within their organization. Hopefully he can then advise me and my council any future issues of conflict that might arise. He might also be able to advise me how I can structure my current employment contract to avoid these kind of nuisance claims in the future.
Many of you must be able to see what’s going on here. The forces of evil in our town are trying to make it as difficult as possible for those with integrity to be effective in their positions on council. I find it rather strange the Mr. Swayze says that Deb is not in conflict but still advises her to excuse herself from the vote. Deb is a very willful lady and I am sure she will not heed my advice. I see more trench warfare coming from this in which the white hats usually lose.
For twenty grand per year, it would take a better person than me to put up with this kind of shit.
