…. to be dealt with in the light of day.
Corporate Review Report
I was planning on attending last night’s meeting of council where discussion and formal acceptance of the Corporate Review Report was to take place. Until, I went on-line to the municipal website to view the agenda, only to discover it is the last item on the agenda, prior to the inevitable in camera session (where I’m sure the real discussion will take place). Putting it so late ensures fewer if any participants… was this the intent?
Does council find this Corporate Review Report too embarrassing to deal with in the light of day? If so, then I suggest this report is headed for the same dusty shelf the other one is on. By putting this extremely important agenda item so late in the evening council gives me the impression that they do not want to take ownership of this document, and therefore… it was for naught.
Having to depend on our local media for what individual councillors say and think is not my idea of getting the facts, considering how biased they all are in favour of our local conservative establishment, and its leader. Nor do I want to see them easily dismiss this document with mindless chatter about things that don’t matter, while ignoring those things that do.
Rather than have ‘establishment media’ tell me what to think about the Corporate Review Report, and what the issues should be, I would have preferred to listen to my councillors tell me what they think, and then decide for myself. Thank you very much!
Council should hold a public meeting to allow residents to make up their own minds, by being allowed to question their representatives.
… then, afterwards, we can hang one or two of you by way of example to the rest. I guarantee you good government after that! :-)
