In memory

July 29th, 2011  

 

This morning we received the devastating news that a dear friend and strong supporter of our sea turtle research passed away. He had just undergone heart bypass surgery and did not recover from post-surgery complications. We spoke with him briefly two days ago, and were so fortunate to be able to tell him we loved him.

Aloha nui loa, Jose. Pulu `elo i ka ua o ka ho`oilo. Aloha!

Mississauga News “bombed” with e-graffiti with “Friends of Hazel” hypocrite’s “FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!”

July 22nd, 2011  

MISSISSAUGAWATCH Investigation Series, Volume 2, “Peel Youth Violence Prevention as related to McMurtry/Curling’s Roots of Youth Violence” (#2)

Today’s blog builds on our last one, Why research graffiti? (Peel Youth Violence Prevention as related to McMurtry/Curling’s Roots of Youth Violence).  Graffiti is what “bad” youth do and “bad” people do, right?

Can an online newspaper comments section be “bombed” with graffiti?

We say yes.

WHY RESEARCH GRAFFITI? MISSISSAUGAWATCH

In our April 19th, 2010 blog, GRAFFITI in MISSISSAUGA: Preliminary Report (April 19, 2009 – April 19, 2010) baseline, we chose to use the Mirriam-Webster definition of “graffiti”.

graffiti

: usu. unauthorized writing or drawing on a public surface

The functional word here is “unauthorized”.

In their July 14, 2011 Editorial, “Cutting off the dialogue”, the Mississauga News announced:

“We’ve decided to suspend public online commentary on all stories related to the Ward 5 vote and candidates”.

The Mississauga News even cut off commentary on their editorial with “Commenting on this story has been suspended“.

First, we submit that the readers comment section of the Mississauga News online is a “public surface”. Given the internet’s global reach, it’s tough to find a more public, “public surface”.

Metroland, the owner of this “public surface” announced that it was suspending “public online commentary on all stories related to the Ward 5 vote and candidates.”

The meaning is quite clear —any “public online commentary on all stories related to the Ward 5 vote and candidates” is unauthorized.

And what you’d expect to happen did happen. The commenters simply commented on the Ward 5 race in other stories and heaped scorn at the Mississauga News demanding “FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!” and served up “DOWN WITH THE MISSISSAUGA NEWS!”

And this is what the Mississauga News front page looked like on July 16th, courtesy of  “Friend of Hazel”, “Prol”. (“Prol”, we should point out supports “Friend of Hazel” Jake Dheer’s Ward 5 candidacy.)

"Prol", co-designer of the "Friends of Hazel" Rally flyer "bombs" Mississauga News articles with "FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!"110716

MISSISSAUGA NEWS front page: "Prol", co-designer of the "Friends of Hazel" Rally flyer "bombs" Mississauga News articles with "FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!"110716

Having documented some of these commenters, I can confirm how they loathe graffiti artists and taggers. How they refer to them as punks, scumbags and losers.

For the record, what follows are just some of the comments left by “Prol” (alternate alias “AV8R”) after the Mississauga News made its announcement to suspend public online commentary on all stories related to the Ward 5 vote and candidates.

We focus on “Prol” (aka “AV8R”) for one reason. He is an identifiable person, just one of two people who co-designed the Friends of Hazel Rally flyer. The same flyer (in this photo), presented to Hazel McCallion by Lorry Smith (left) and Ron Starr.

Do Lorry Smith and Ron Starr know who “Prol” is?…

Mississauga News reader-commenter "Prol" (other alias "AV8R") is co-designed this "Friends of Hazel Rally" fllyer presented to Mayor Hazel McCallion by Ron Starr and Lorry Smith.

Mississauga News reader-commenter "Prol" (other alias "AV8R") co-designed this "Friends of Hazel Rally" flyer presented to Mayor Hazel McCallion by Ron Starr and Lorry Smith.

“Friends of Hazel” Rally organizer, Betty Merkley certainly does. As perhaps co-organizer, Councillor Katie Mahoney.

We know that “Prol” (by his own admission) is a liar.

He’s also a hypocrite.

Witness “Prol”s call for “FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!”

Fact is,  “Prol” (aka “AV8R”) was part of a massive “sanitation” squad, deleting entire Mississauga News threads back in April 2010 and again in January 2011. Just three clicks of the “Offensive” feature and comments were erased. “Prol” would click once as “Prol” and log in again as “AV8R”. And likely had a third alias as well.

After all, the “Friends of Hazel” have prospered for decades under Mississauga’s media-barren environment and do their all to keep it that way.

“FRIENDS OF HAZEL” DELETE HUNDREDS OF COMMENTS AT MISSISSAUGA NEWS (8:02 min)

(Click here to go directly to the clip on YouTube)

Such are the Mayor’s “people”. These are the “Friends of Hazel”.

So. Take a look at samples of a new kind of  e-graffiti  —unauthorized writing left on a public surface by one of Hazel McCallion’s finest: “Prol” (aka “AV8R”).

Mayor Hazel McCallion is quite fond of saying that Her Town flourishes with a “team approach”. Witness a TEAM HAZEL’s “Prol”, an e-sociopath doing his all “in the best interests of the City” of course.

This One Message “team approach” is how Hazel McCallion stayed in power for over thirty years.

"Friend of Hazel" (McCallion) "bombs" the Mississauga News with a different kind of "graffiti". "FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!" and "DOWN WITH THE MISSISSAUGA NEWS!"

"Friend of Hazel" (McCallion) "bombs" the Mississauga News with a different kind of "graffiti". "FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!" and "DOWN WITH THE MISSISSAUGA NEWS!"

For the record, here’s a cut-and-paste.

Good one CR Your ironic posting helps to expose the absurdity of censorship. Apparently, the proletariat can be trusted with commenting on a sporting event or a story about parking violations but not anything as important as a by-election. THAT is best served by the commissar approved arbiters of public consumption, the Mississauga News. THE PEOPLE WILL SPEAK! LONG LIVE DEMOCRACY! DOWN WITH MISSISSAUGA NEWS!

“In some ways, it’s a sad day for The Mississauga News and for community journalism. “In some ways? How could it be sadder? How could it be more blatantly and transparently partisan? Sad? Try pathetic and anti-democratic. Where was your concern for decency while reporting on the Mississauga Enquiry or the last municipal election? Some of the most libellous and “unfair” comments still live on this site. Hypocrites. Some will see this posting before you delete it.

  • Agree

Note reference to “libellous”.

So typical of the “Friends of Hazel” deceitful ways, Prol fails to mention his “Psycho” comment in the article, “Don’t Elect Parrish”. (Note, “CP” is referring to Carolyn Parrish):

And in his “Psycho” comment in another article, “Dheer joins Alzheimer Society team“, “Prol/AV8R”, with typical lack of self-awareness, fails to see the irony in a psychotic post calling me a psycho:

I knew the wait would be short for Ursula Psycho to jump on this. The quote you selected from Andre Marin sounds much like what anyone buying into your endlessly repeated lunatic drivels should expect. Picture me giving you the MMuse salute. Cut and paste that – psycho.

  • Agree 2

  • Offensive

That’s right. Referring to Ontario Ombudsman Andre Marin’s address to The Canadian Centre for Ethics and Corporate Policy, (2007) as “lunatic drivel”.

These are the “Friends of Hazel” —cowards so proud to be supporting their Mayor that they hide behind aliases.

Or just hide.

FRIENDS OF HAZEL RALLY (December 2, 2009). Organizers did their all to prevent Mississauga residents from learning about Hazel McCallion's wheelings and dealings on behalf of her son --and "her people".

If the "Friends of Hazel" are so proud of supporting their Mayor, why all the hiding?...

E-graffiti. Cyber-cowards. Enough’s enough of these “Friends of Hazel’ aliases and multiple aliases.

It’s time to report on real “Friends of Hazel” —with real names. Names we’d never know about had it not been for the big hole the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry blasted into this Company Town’s “media-barren environment”.

A youth once wrote me with “The System is too corrupt, there is no way to fix it.” That’s what both video and Freedom of Information confirms. No way to fix it.

But you can document, document, document, document document…. and warn one person at a time.

Take home message? If you want to see the REAL Mississauga, see what Mississaugans really believe when their identities are tucked safely behind aliases —peer into their racism, their quasi-fascism, read the Mississauga News readers comments! And see this city’s Future!

Why research graffiti? (Peel Youth Violence Prevention as related to McMurtry/Curling’s Roots of Youth Violence)

July 20th, 2011  

MISSISSAUGAWATCH Investigation Series, Volume 2,
“Peel Youth Violence Prevention as related to McMurtry/Curling’s Roots of Youth Violence” (#1)

The casual reader will certainly be surprised that MISSISSAUGAWATCH goes from taking a behind-the-scenes look at the four individuals behind a Mississauga political website to reporting on the findings from the now defunct Peel Youth Violence Prevention Network.

And it must surely bewilder that we file a 2011 graffiti video-report from the Hawaiian island of Maui to draw comparisons with graffiti in Mississauga and the City of Hamilton. A reminder: MISSISSAUGAWATCH has been researching graffiti since April 2009 for reasons that we now reveal in today’s report.

WHY RESEARCH GRAFFITI? MISSISSAUGAWATCH

As is now our custom, here’s the video, complete with transcript.

Graffiti: Maui, Hawaii (with research comparisons to Hamilton and Mississauga, Ontario) (7:57 min)

(Click here to go directly to the clip on YouTube)

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting July 8, 2011 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii.

It is Friday, July the 8th, 2011 and we’ve returned once again to this study site here, graffiti study site on Maui.

This is the third year that we’ve been documenting this. Uh, and it looks already like even the stuff that we had documented back [to husband] I think we were here in November, right?

Husband

Yeah, I think so.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting July 8, 2011 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii.

November December, have been erased.

So there’s really an aggressive anti-graffiti programme here on Maui. Very difficult to even find any. And let’s just do a quick shot here. [Note: videotape easily reveals graffiti missed by the eye] and just seems to be no graffiti at all.

But at the same time, when you document, sometimes you really have to document Nothing. And it looks like that’s what we’ve got to do.

[DIP TO WHITE]
[split-screen graffiti comparison same site June 30, 2009 with July 8, 2011]

There’s just absolutely nothing.

We were here in November/December taking a look. It wasn’t dry by the way. We actually had to cross —this was water and we had to get our feet wet as a result. But, you know, clearly the authorities have been here and erased what little had returned since The Big Erase.

And I don’t know when, of course, they went through again with a brush and got rid of it but perhaps it’ll be [in our video record.]

[DIP TO WHITE]

This is mauka [direction towards the mountains]. July the 8th, 2011. [slow, careful pan mauka to makai –direction to the sea.] And there’s nothing going all the way down.

And I will document this.

And there’s nothing here. [slow, careful pan of Wall 2 and then report switches to June 30, 2009]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii.

There’s always this. You always get the intelligentsia  Looks like that says “HEMPR”. And “FANTASTIC”. What’s that say? “PRIDE KAUAI RULES”, I think.

“RUDY WAS HEA”. And that’s American —writing. Looks to me like “06-8-08″ but actually, well —”RESK”.

[DIP TO WHITE]

Just want to document that my husband has made an observation here. That roughly right there was the “I love Maui”, wasn’t it? [split-screen “MAUI June 30, 2009 for comparison]

Remember that beautiful little “I love Maui” thing?

Husband

Yeah.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii.

Okay. Yeah. You can kind of see the remnants right here. Of it. This here.

[DIP TO WHITE]

You have the original white, which I think was the first obliteration. Then there was a beige. Then a gray. And finally another kind of off-white. So somebody has been through here four times.

[DIP TO WHITE]

Husband

I think there’s graffiti out there.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii.

Okay. My husband has pointed out a culvert right there that he says might have graffiti in it. We’ve never gone down that far before but we will.

[DIP TO WHITE]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii.

We’ve got some joggers or walkers there. To give you an idea. [wide-angle of site to close-up of graffiti spray can]

If this is used as often as it looks like.

[DIP TO WHITE]
[camera aims makai –direction to the ocean]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii complete with dogs barking.

It is July the 8th, 2011. We finally —we found it to be a tunnel. And as we were going in, we also found it was guarded here by bees. Not to mention the dogs. Not just those. But over there.

So I suspect that there’s good reason that there’s not much in the way of graffiti returning anymore [inside culvert]. You alert the dogs. and also GAWD, I don’t know whether that was wasps or bees. There’s a nest in there somewhere, but we didn’t even go near it.

Do not need that kind of excitement!

WOW!

[to husband] You got a picture though, right?

Husband

Yes.

MAUI GRAFFITI STUDY SITE, KAHALUI, July 8, 2011, We approached this culvert for the first time and bees (perhaps wasps?) erupted from the top left and that was the end of *that* documentation plan! The bees sure provide context to the white graffiti sayin

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii.

Yeah.

[DIP TO WHITE]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii walking/documenting mauka.

Anyway, I want to document that one of the reasons why I’m researching graffiti is that I believe, or have hypothesized that the nature of the graffiti is reflective of the relationship between youth and law enforcement —and specifically police.

And one of the reasons I say that is, that one of my study sites in addition to Mississauga is the City of Hamilton.

And the City of Hamilton just —SHOCKED me. Absolutely shocked me. First of all in the amount of graffiti that there was. Now they have gone on quite an aggressive erasing campaign since.

But the amount of “FTP”s —which is “Fuck The Police”, or “FTC” —”Fuck The Cops”. And also just in bold writing, “FUCK THE COPS” in full letters. I couldn’t believe.

And there’s really in my experience nothing comparable since.

So it makes me question what’s the relationship between the youth in the community at the City of Hamilton.

[DIP TO WHITE]

Again, from the little that I’ve seen of the graffiti here on Maui is similar to the graffiti at Mississauga slash Brampton.

And the City of Hamilton kind of stands out all by itself.

And it demands that you ask the question [sic], why so many “FTP”s? Why so many “FTC”s?

Why is “FUCK THE POLICE” was [sic] written on the sidewalk at Beasley Park?

What is it? Seinfeld made a show around Nothing, right?

Husband

So they claim.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii summing up

So they claim.

Husband

It will be interesting to compare our visit in November to this one.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii summing up

Absolutely, I agree.

Husband

I don’t think you’re gonna see all this gray-patching and stuff.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii summing up

Yeah.

And have you documented some of the gray patching? Especially over there?

Husband

No.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii summing up

Well, if you could do that, I’d appreciate it.

[Concluding remarks: The Lesson Here]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting June 30, 2009 from Graffiti Study Site 01, Kahalui, Maui, Hawaii leaving

Just a final comment before I go.

I’m reminded of a Peel Regional Council meeting where Hazel McCallion asked a pretty memorable question. Asked—

[split-screen Hazel McCallion, Peel Regional Council Hazel McCallion’s voice superimposed over MISSISSAUGAWATCH]

“What happens if Nothing happens?”

And of course the answer is, Even document Nothing.

Document. Document. Document. Document. Document. Document. Document. Document.

Quote from the video. The Truth about Brampton and Mississauga Youth Anti-Violence Panels. Pastor Andrew King (Etobicoke)

..all I can say is of all the panels I sit on the first question that is asked is ‘Where are the young people? We are talking about them but they’re not with us.’ Young people are very frustrated because there’s a lot of panels. Oh the reports that are written about all the money we gotta spend!’ And they’re very frustrated with the system right now. That’s why they don’t come to a lot of these things because the truth is because they don’t believe in what’s happening.

And as the Pastor said, we have to engage them. We actually have to win back the confidence of our young people.

“Friends of Hazel” (McCallion) Part 2: Introducing The Four Behind Stopcarolynparrish.com –and Paul Keselman

July 18th, 2011  

MISSISSAUGAWATCH Investigation Series, Volume 1, “What citizens should know about stopcarolynparrish.com” (#4)

In the Mississauga News article, ‘Keselman throws hat into Ward 5 ring”, it states:

The married father of two said he felt a “higher calling” to serve.

“I feel divine providence is at play in this election and I’m the person that’s best suited to represent this ward,”

This morning when I Googled “stopcarolynparrish.com” and Mississauga Ward 5 candidate Paul Kesselman showed up in the search results!

And what a surprise to find Paul “divine providence” Keselman by following the link www.burlington.net/election-2010/paul-keselman!

It’s clear that Paul “divine providence” Keselman, self-described “Proud Conservative” didn’t feel enough “divine providence” to inform Mississauga Ward 5 residents that “-266” days ago he was running for  “Ward 5 City & Regional Councillor in Burlington”. Yes! Burlington!

But by far the most outrageous thing about Keselman is his slimy, swarmy “Real Resident Feedback” section at:  www.paulkeselman.com/bio/real-resident-feedback,

Paul “divine providence” Keselman cuts-and-pastes an anti-Parrish comment that he attributes to former Mississauga Ward 3 candidate, Stephen Wahl.  I saved the entire thread comments and fact is, the comment was generated by alias ehdian on Jul 5, 2011 9:05 AM.  [evidence to follow]

To Paul “divine providence” Keselman, “Real Residents” are the same Mississauga News  “Friends of Hazel” cowards hiding behind aliases: “Mantis”, “freddie”, “tankerone” and “ehdian”. —”ehdian”, who for all any of us know, could be Paul Keselman himself “Real Resident”ing under that alias!

And throughout Paul “divine providence” Keselman’s “Real Resident Feedback” section there are references to stopcarolynparrish.com.

Paul “divine providence” Keselman —American-style politics imported to Burlington’s Ward 5 now setting up “divine providence” shop in Mississauga Ward 5. Absolutely fascinating!

Why follow and report on all this, you might wonder. It’s all part of my ongoing research into the Roots of Youth Violence —our lying-“failure to mention” politicians and the resident-infrastucture that prop them up.

Which is as good as any introduction to Part 2 of “Friends of Hazel” (McCallion): Introducing The Four Behind Stopcarolynparrish.com.

As is now our custom, here’s the video, complete with transcript.

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting July 16, 2011 while surfing the net, continuing from Part 1.

This guy here. Restoring integrity to Mississauga Council from Oakville and this guy here from Milton. And a reminder that I found that funny and just want to go back.

Yeah, so we’re back here to Cheryl Glassford, just want to be carefully documenting this.

And we’d also said that the two biggest people that you do not want dealing with youth, let alone anything with moving parts is Katie Mahoney and Pat Saito. And the absolute worst of the bunch Katie Mahoney.

[DIP TO WHITE]

“Info”. That’s all she says. However, you could also see that she [Glassford] votes [sic: supports] so clearly she’s right in line with anything that MYTHissauga and Hazel McCallion would want her to do.

[DIP TO WHITE]

“Vote for Patrick Mendes”? There he is. Ah yes.

Anyway.

So we’re back to Cheryl Glassford and happy to have done her and now back to Murray.

Now a reminder that I had videotaped Murray Glassford’s initial photograph here where he was riding on a motorcycle. He’s since changed the page at Christmas time and now he’s put that up. He’s actually a coach or something to do with the North Stars, the minor league here in Mississauga.

So I suspect that that’s where he gets a lot of his influence.

Murray Glassford lists 58 friends. Nothing jumps out. Except this guy. Reminder, Tom Cahill helped with the stopcarolynparrish.com, so we go to Tom Cahill. There he is. And he’s got 414 friends.

And what’s really interesting, very quickly, there she is.

Tom Cahill. “Info”. “Lives in Milton, Ontario”.

And what we’ll do then now is go to Tom Cahill’s flickr site. There he is.

And when you search on various tags he has, you find “Murray” right —search, there it is right there. Search “Murray”. And there’s Murray Glassford.

And it’s still up. I’m surprised actually. It was uploaded, so it’s May 2009. And there’s a Mississauga, City of Mississauga employee. Community Services.

So there it is. Tom Cahill’s friend, Murray Glassford of stopcarolynparrish.com.

[DIP TO WHITE]

And there is Cheryl. Cheryl Glassford who wrote —Hazel McCallion’s apologeticist  and too happy to, look at this:

“She is accused of going to meetings. Is her personal time not her own?”

So in other words, a mayor can go to meetings that benefit her son —what was it? Ten million dollars? For the hotel complex? As long as it’s her own time?

These people did their ALL the prevent the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry. And of course we now know why that is. There’s all kinds of stuff that spilled out.

[laughs] Including we find out about the Mayor’s Gala, the Community Foundation of Mississauga. On and on and on.

These are the people behind stopcarolynparrish.com whose mission is, heh, to instore [sic] integrity and respectability. And of course you do that by failing to mention to mention all kinds of things.

In fact that’s how Hazel McCallion stayed in power. Failure to mention. Coaching to keep things Positive Positive Positive. And of course have, you know, have, you know, Ted Woloshyn and Ron Lenyk and Jake Dheer your “media”.

Okay, I’m just trying to think what else before I turn this off, but I think that’s it.

ONTARIO MUNICIPALITIES: A MAJOR (unexplored) ROOT OF YOUTH VIOLENCE

Must-see related video “FRIENDS OF HAZEL” ( $$$Guardians$$$ of the MYTH of MYTHISSAUGA )

We hear a lot about poor ethics and broken promises on the part of politicians these days, and how this breeds cynicism in the electorate. But this is by no means a problem confined to politicians. My office has uncovered many cases of government ministries, boards and corporations making grandiose promises to the public that they not only can’t keep, they don’t even bother to try. They promise a level of service or a standard of conduct that they don’t come close to delivering – forgetting about the public they are supposed to serve.

This kind of puffed-up promise, or “puffery,” as I call it, damages the public trust, fuels cynicism and generally gives public service and government a bad name.

Address by André Marin, Ombudsman of Ontario, “Puffery vs Public Interest”. The Canadian Centre for Ethics and Corporate Policy, (2007)

which brings us to:

On Mayor Hazel McCallion’s “telling it like it is” —from Tom Urbaniak’s book Her Worship: Hazel McCallion and the Development of Mississauga (pages 143/144).

Despite McCallion’s tight control, it did happen occasionally that unwanted statements or descriptions slipped into the budget documents. In such instances, Her Worship did not hesitate to chastise the staff. One staff-prepared budget overview contained a statement implying that deferred maintenance was resulting in deterioration of facilities used by the public:

Continuing fundings pressures for capital reserve fund financing in the first six years resulted in significant deferrals of maintenance to the end of the forecast period (10 years). This results in continued deterioration of department facilities and is most noticeable where these facilities are heavily used by the public (eg, community centres, libraries, arenas, park trails and sports fields). Fire and emergency services is also severely impacted by this funding constraint as the training centre and station renovations cannot be funded within this plan. 23

This brought a sharp rebuke from the mayor: the statement should either be retracted or adjusted. This is a very significant statement to me that a roof is going to fall in on some of our buildings. Somebody’s going to pick this up and say “yes, you’re doing a great job on taxes but you’ve got significant deferrals. I think you should take out that statement, redo and tell it like it is.”

Community services commissioner Paul Mitcham tried at first to explain, but then conceded that ‘it’s probably not a good statement.’ He promised it would be taken out.

Last. Comments directed to me at the Mississauga News from two “Friends of Hazel” aka. what Paul “divine providence” Keselman refers to as “Real Resident Feedback”…

“Friends of Hazel”. Hazel McCallion’s “people” —cowards who hide behind multiple aliases.

Today I was going to continue with Part 2 of “Friends of Hazel” (McCallion): Introducing The Four Behind Stopcarolynparrish.com but something unprecedented happened at the Mississauga News in between. In the July 14th  editorial, “Cutting off the dialogue”, the Mississauga News announced:

In the interest of ensuring fair and unbiased coverage for all candidates running in the Sept. 19 Ward 5 by-election, we’ve decided to can the chatter. In some ways, it’s a sad day for The Mississauga News and for community journalism.

We’ve decided to suspend public online commentary on all stories related to the Ward 5 vote and candidates.

They continue:

We still welcome the opinions of our readers on this important election and encourage you to submit letters to the editor

Well, what you’d expect from the Friends of Hazel cowards who hide behind aliases to happen did happen. They just commented everywhere else serving up “FREEDOM! FREEDOM! FREEDOM!” and “DOWN WITH THE MISSISSAUGA NEWS!” And I videotaped it.

Why? Because by his own admission,”Prol”, co-designer of the Friends of Hazel Rally flyer lies.

And here’s Friend of Hazel “Prol’s” flyer flanked by Lorry Smith and Ron Starr.

Mississauga News reader-commented "Prol" (other alias "AV8R") co-designed this "Friends of Hazel Rally" fllyer presented to Mayor Hazel McCallion by Ron Starr and Lorry Smith.

So here’s the video.

“Friends of Hazel” turn the Mississauga News into a Filth Pad –show how McCallion stayed in power. (4:06 min)

As is now our custom, here’s the video, complete with transcript.

[Music: Behind Blue Eyes, The Who]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting July 16, 2011 while surfing the net.

It is Saturday, July the 16th, 2011 and this is what the Toronto Star looks like. And we’ve been documenting the conduct of the co-designer of the “Friends of Hazel” Rally flyer, an individual named “Prol”.

And Mississauga News has suspended comments on their website on anything related to Ward 5 because of such antics as individuals like “Prol”. And you can see, for example, this is a new article on Ward 5 and down at the bottom it says commenting has been closed.

And I have other videotape to show some of the vile comments by “Prol” and the “Friends of Hazel” —that is, supporters of stopcarolynparrish.com and the Jake Dheer candidacy.

And so over here, this is what the Mississauga News looks like on the front page. “Recent Comments” “Prol”  “Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”.

By “Prol”, “Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”. “Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”.

And what has happened is every new article in the Mississauga News where comments are allowed, whether it relates to politics or not —doesn’t matter. You have “Prol” —remember, co-designer of the “Friends of Hazel Rally” flyer, “Friend of Hazel” calling for “Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”

And to my disgust, “Tony Jackson” has also joined in.

So in every site, these two drop their turds of disrespect at the Mississauga News.

And what I want to do is document that. [Note. The Mississauga News was forced to delete their comments.]  That’s “Wonderettes are marvellous”

We now go to “City master plan wins award” and the same here. And sure enough there they are.

“Shooting suspects try [sic] for bail”. And I tell you, if I was webmaster at the Mississauga News, both these ASSHOLES —and I used to have respect for “Tony Jackson” but I don’t have anymore— would be gone!

[DIP TO WHITE]

Here. “Deer sighting in Port Credit”. I thought, oh, really cool article. And there they are again. Only in this particular one, you’ve got —it was ConcernedResident, who started it. “Comments [on this story] have been suspended”.

“tankerone”, whose response to Carolyn Parrish confirming she was running in Ward 5 called for stopcarolynparrish.com website. And we have again “Prol”. [writing “DOWN WITH THE MISSISSAUGA NEWS!”]

All three, strong supporters of Jake Dheer.

So, this is the mentality. This is —this is how Hazel McCallion stayed in power all these years.

ONTARIO MUNICIPALITIES: A MAJOR (unexplored) ROOT OF YOUTH VIOLENCE

We hear a lot about poor ethics and broken promises on the part of politicians these days, and how this breeds cynicism in the electorate. But this is by no means a problem confined to politicians. My office has uncovered many cases of government ministries, boards and corporations making grandiose promises to the public that they not only can’t keep, they don’t even bother to try. They promise a level of service or a standard of conduct that they don’t come close to delivering – forgetting about the public they are supposed to serve.

This kind of puffed-up promise, or “puffery,” as I call it, damages the public trust, fuels cynicism and generally gives public service and government a bad name.

“Friends of Hazel” (McCallion) Part 1: Introducing The Four Behind Stopcarolynparrish.com

July 16th, 2011  

MISSISSAUGAWATCH Investigation Series, Volume 1, “What citizens should know about stopcarolynparrish.com” (#2)

First off I thought I’d share what the co-designer of the “Friends of Hazel” rally flyer (alias “Prol” other alias “AV8R”) posted to me in the Mississauga News comments section just to give Mississauga residents an idea the kind of abuse you can expect when you stand up to Hazel McCallion.

WARNING! Offensive content, click to view

Mississauga News shuts down comments on Ward 5 race. Samples of filth left by the co-designer of the Friends of Hazel Rally flyer. Is alias "Prol" who also have alias "AV8R" he also "Uato"?

You get attacked with “Psycho, You are one twisted bitch. Can’t you please get some help?” —and

WARNING! Offensive content, click to view
“I can smell your cunt”

by the “Friends of Hazel” —cowards who hide behind multiple aliases.

Hazel McCallion’s “people”.

In Rick Mercer’s video, “Welcome to Mississauga”, Mercer asks Hazel McCallion the secret of her 30-year reign’s success. Without hesitation she replied, “Well, you have to look after your people.”

MISSISSAUGAWATCH has been documenting the Mayor’s “people” since May 2006.

Today we continue our video report of the Mayor’s “people” —this time real ones, and their website, stopcarolynparrish.com.

This website was created by an on-and-off-again retired City of Mississauga employee Murray Glassford and his wife Cheryl.  We’ve monitored stopcarolynparrish.com since April 2010 when we suspected that at least some of the Mississauga News reader-commenters hiding behind aliases just might be from stopcarolynparrish.com! I can’t stress enough, only “possible”.

Should you take the time to visit that site, please keep in mind that their Mission Statement is “Dedicated to respectability and integrity in Mississauga politics” as you read the comments posted there! Like the the goings-on in Peel itself, issue-driven this site is not.

Why videotape actual net-surfing sessions?

For irrefutable proof of what’s really going on, there’s nothing better than videotape. While today’s video has been edited for brevity, we uploaded the original unedited version up to YouTube in a private location. The original video, from camera on to camera off, is 26:53 minute in length and in two YouTube parts. This provides a “history” then of what a website looked like on a particular date. (You’d be amazed how the Mayor’s “people” remove inconvenient truths once they’re reported.)

“The Friends of Hazel” (aka: the Mayor’s “people”) are truly cult-like in their allegiance to Mayor Hazel McCallion.  And preliminary evidence suggests that of the “Friends of Hazel” cult-worshipers, there are no more rabid “priests” than those commenting at stopcarolnparrish.com.

As is now our custom, here’s the video, complete with transcript.

“Friends of Hazel” (McCallion): Introducing The Four Behind Stopcarolynparrish.com (8:54 min)

(Click here to go directly to the clip on YouTube)

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT]
[NOTE: video is unedited, 5:18 min from camera on to camera off.]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting July 5, 2011 while surfing the net.

It is Saturday, July the 9th, 2011 and this is what the Toronto Star looks like.

I hope to upload this video either July the 9th or July the 10th, depending on how things go.

[DIP TO WHITE]

Anyway we go through and why the interest in Cheryl Glassford? For several reasons, but first being when you go to the Mississauga News website and search for “Cheryl Glassford” —Letter of the Week, Editorial.

July the 10th, 2009, she sent a Letter to Mississauga Councillors saying that she’s really disappointed with the “disintegration of morale in our city council” and that she was “appalled”.

And you know, very, very very much against Carolyn Parrish, And that in itself isn’t —I got no problems with that.

The problem is the way that Cheryl Glassford, and her website. also with her husband, stopcarolynparrish.com —and the problem that I have is their Mission Statement, Carolyn Parrish causing “further embarrassment” to the City.

The “embarrassment” to the City is the Truth that is spilling forth like turds in a plugged-up toilet.

And there she is and a reminder she had “Full Disclosure” here, saying that yes, her husband “was a City of Mississauga employee until his retirement in 2008. And then fails to mention that in the election year, where is it, Murray Glassford here.

Under “Info”, mentions that he was a temporary labourer in the 2010 season from April 2010 to November 2010, which happens to be the election year.

So you’ve got a City of Mississauga employee double-dipping —first in pension and then also as being employed as a temp. Also being active in the stopcarolynparrish.ca [sic] website. And —er dot com, pardon me.

And then that draws the question, the political neutrality of City of Mississauga employees.

[DIP TO WHITE]

And then we got back. She’s written another letter —right there.

And she talks about “facts” and we got a lot of facts coming out of the Judicial Inquiry. And they don’t correlate to Cheryl Glassford’s concept of “facts”.

[DIP TO WHITE]

A reminder too that Cheryl Glassford organized —helped organize the December 2nd. 2009 “Friends of Hazel” Rally that did their best to oppose the Judicial Inquiry.

[DIP TO WHITE]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting July 5, 2011 while surfing Phil Green’s “Cancel the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry Now” online petition.

Phil Green. He started it.

But if you look at the first 24 signatures.

These people rank high in the list of people who do not want citizens of Mississauga to know what’s really going on.

And notice in the first four, you’ve got both Cheryl Glassford and Murray Glassford signing this petition to stop the inquiry. Why?

And the other guy that’s really interesting is at #17, one Mike Webster who we have already confirmed has a website called web-tech.ca and signs in, let’s see —the (Canadian) Airgun Forum and Zombie, I forget what it is, Zombie-something (Zombie Hunters Forum) as “Mantis”.

And said that, we’re going to deal with Mike Webster, he’s quite the beaut, at another time.

So why are we so interested in both Cheryl here and Murray, we are researching the kinds of people who support Hazel McCallion. The ones who [speaking in a whisper] don’t want Mississaugans to know what’s really going on.

 [DIP TO WHITE]

 So back at it.

What do her [Facebook] friends reveal, because there’s only 39 of them.

Well, Betty Merkley. She was a key in organizing —and in fact, on October the 28th, [2009] she was a speaker in front of Council and helped organize, key in help organizing the “Friends of Hazel” Rally, December 2nd, 2009.

And when you look, Betty Merkley has only five friends.

And we’ve already had Rob Trewartha, who had written just recently a letter to the editor of the Mississauga News. We’ve dealt with Rob Trewartha.

And he listed all kinds of friends, all manner of information, including his photographs. I mentioned that at the Mississauga News and now Rob only shares profile information, you know, people he knows.

Too late, cuz I got all of his stuff

[DIP TO WHITE]

—including photographs of him and Hazel and him admitting, “Yes, I’m a political hack”. You could already tell that from his letters.

There’s Cheryl so you can see that there’s a link there. And Jonathon Crombie. Is that Bonnie Crombie’s kiddie? We don’t know. Would be interesting to find out though.

And I always want to go back like that just to show that it is a computer screen and I’m working at it right now.

Going back to her 39 friends

[DIP TO WHITE]

Applin is also an important name because she credits two people with this website.

[DIP TO WHITE]
[ and reads from stopcarolynparrish.com]

Yeah. Notice? Applin, Kerry Applin. And we’re going to do him today too and buddy Tom Cahill did the programming.

And by the way what’s fun is Tom Cahill is a resident of Milton and this guy [Kerry Applin] interesting too.

Oh and “We also want to Thank [sic] Ted Woloshyn, or Woloshyn or whatever, here’s what Ted Woloshyn is like, just to give you an idea of [his] commentary at the Toronto Sun.

And Hazel’s lapdog here —this is from the Mayor’s Gala’s website. So you can, you will not be able to expect any kind of objectivity from —that guy.

[DIP TO WHITE]

Again, just going back. There’s Cheryl Glassford. We have also Councillor Pat Saito. And a reminder. We have Freedom of Information and also been videotaping Mississauga Council since oh, December 2006.

There’s only one person who deceives citizens more than Councillor Pat Saito and that is Katie Mahoney. And I should add that Councillor Pat Saito was a former City of Mississauga employee as well.

[DIP TO WHITE]

So that Cheryl Glassford then has links to both [laughs] the two worst Councillors for truth, Saito —and Mahoney

[DIP TO WHITE]

Kerry Applin. And it might just be instructive to do him really quickly.

[DIP TO WHITE]

Going back just to check, I’m not sure what the camera was aiming properly or not.

[DIP TO WHITE]

“Dramatic Graphic Net”. There’s his website. “Art and Design”. So is this the guy who helped design the “Friends of Hazel” Rally flyer? Is that possible? Hmm.

And Kerry Applin is an Oakville resident!

[DIP TO WHITE]
[Music: “Don’t crash the ambulance” Mark Knopfler]

So! The stopcarolynparrish.com site that wants to restore integrity or maintain integrity in the City of Mississauga was designed by Kerry Applin, an Oakville resident, and Tom Cahill, a Milton resident.

[laughs] Whattabuncha hacks. I love it. This is so funny.

stopcarolynparrish.com reveals a 2010 City of Mississauga employee and wife as administrators (and a Milton and Oakville resident…)

July 12th, 2011  

MISSISSAUGAWATCH Investigation Series, Volume 1, “What citizens should know about stopcarolynparrish.com” (#1)
This blog was updated at 12:55 on July 12, 2011 because it contained a factual error. Apologies.

It sure didn’t take long for the Mississauga News article,  “Parrish eyes Ward 5 seat” to come out before reader-commenter (alias) “tankerone” called for stopcarolynparrish.com.

tankerone
Jul 4, 2011 10:39 PM
Here we go again!www.stopcarolynparrish.com

  • Agree 5
  • Disagree 5
  • Offensive 3

Well. There’s no time like the present to explore exactly WHO is behind the website, stopcarolynparrish.com.

And so MISSISSAUGAWATCH will now take you on a video tour of the website created by April-to-November 2010 City of Mississauga employee, Murray Glassford and his wife, Cheryl. And the two individuals responsible for the design and programming of stopcarolynparrish.com, Oakville resident Kerry Applin and Milton resident Tom Cahill.

As a result I can now confirm that the fine folks who bring us stopcarolynparrish.com who claim to be “Dedicated to integrity & respectability in Mississauga politics” —well, you get the idea.

As is now our custom, here’s the video, complete with transcript.

stopcarolynparrish.com reveals 2010 City of Mississauga employee and wife as administrators (5:18 min)

(Click here to go directly to the clip on YouTube)

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT]
[NOTE: video is unedited, 5:18 min from camera on to camera off.]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting July 5, 2011 while surfing the net.

It is Tuesday, July the 5th, 2011 and this is what the Toronto Star looks like. Let’s see if we can do this all in one quick —take.

Here is stopcarolynparrish.com and they are saying that they’re “Dedicated to integrity & respectability in Mississauga politics”.

When you go to their Mission Statement— the “Full Disclosure“, from Cheryl Glassford is that yes, “my husband was a City of Mississauga employee for 34 years until his retirement in 2008. It has been brought up by Carolyn Parrish but I fail to see the connection to this issue.”

Something like conflict of interest, we’ve got a City employee who is being politically active when the Standard of Conduct says that employees are supposed to be seen as politically neutral.

Another thing is, of course, that this is supposed to be “Full Disclosure“, failed to disclose that her husband worked at the City of Mississauga during an election year.

Here is Murray Glassford’s Facebook page as seen on November, or-ah-yeah, November 26, 2010.

There he is, kind of blurry picture but what can you do?

And he says that yes, he’s retired, he was a former manager of Parks Operations —I have a lot of information, Freedom of Information on City of Mississauga Parks and Rec managers.

And you see that he’s a temporary labourer at the City of Mississauga BraeBen Golf Course in the 2010 season. So so much for “Full Disclosure” here. And then on top of it, stopcarolynparrish.com —I think under “News”, sorry, likely it’s under “News”, uh-yeah.

They want to thank two people, Kerry Applin but also Tom Cahill for their help in the programming [sic] of stopcarolynparrish.com.

When you go and Google “Tom Cahill”, you get to his Facebook page  —pardon me. Sorry. You get to his Flickr page. And it looks like that.

You can actually do a— there’s Tom Cahill.

And what you do then is you see some pictures here. Tom Cahill’s photostream. And it looks like there was this Mother’s Day. Here. Mother’s Day 2009.

And it looks like they may have gone to Toronto here with Murray. And a reminder that this is what his Facebook page looks like. And there’s also pictures of Murray Glassford as a Mississauga Manager.

And so there’s Murray Glassford of stopcarolynparrish.com. This is Megan —not sure what relationship, likely daughter.

This is a picture here of Murray by himself. And close-up.

And finally a picture of —we know this to be Megan. And here is Cheryl Glassford. So Cheryl Glassford of stopcarolynparrish.com. There’s Murray Glassford and Tom Cahill —let’s see if we can get Tom Cahill. Can we get a picture of him? No, this is as big as we can get, although I suspect that every photographer has a portrait.

Let’s see what his Sets are.

Weddings. Self [sic] Portrait. Continuing. Is there a self-portrait of him? Yeah, “Self Portrait”. Again, this is Tom Cahill’s photostream and as you go down, and, that’s what he looks like. There.

These are the people of stopcarolynparrish.com.

There. Murray Glassford and Cheryl.

Turning camera off.

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT ENDS]

Also for background, Cheryl and Murray Glassford helped organize the December 2, 2009 Friends of Hazel Rally opposing the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry. And it looks to me as I might have accidentally captured Murray Glassford’s image when I took this photo at that Friends of Hazel Rally.

FRIENDS OF HAZEL RALLY (December 2, 2009). Organizers did their all to prevent Mississauga residents from learning about Hazel McCallion's wheelings and dealings on behalf of her son --and "her people"

Murray and Cheryl Glassford also played a big part in the Cancel the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry Now Petition.

Both are truly committed to ensuring keeping MYTHissauga goings-on vewy vewy quiet. You can see Cheryl Glassford signing the” Cancel the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry Petition” as #2 and husband Murray as #4. Tom Cahill, (a Milton resident who programmed stopcarolynparrish.com) signed as #618.

In the original version of this blog I’d stated that Oakville resident Tom Cahill, programmer of the stopcarolynparrish.com website had removed the tag “Murray” from his Flickr page as well as the Glassford photographs. This is incorrect, it simply didn’t show in Cahill’s top 150 tags. Apologies for the error.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH issues challenge to Mississaugans. Please match our donation of $250.00 to The Mississauga Food Bank Concert Fund.

July 7th, 2011  

From the Mississauga News,

Rockin’ the house for food bank

Joseph Chin Jul 07, 2011 – 11:05 AM

More than a thousand people packed the Living Arts Centre last night for a concert marking the 25th anniversary of the Mississauga Food Bank.
Although a final tally isn’t in yet, event organizer Carolyn Parrish said the show grossed $105,600. After expenses are paid, she expects the concert to reach its goal of raising $50,000 for the food bank and $10,000 for the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra (MSO).

Parrish was overwhelmed by the generosity of the crowd when a hat was passed around during the intermission. Some $2,800 was collected.

“There were $100 bills in the collection. People were donating by Visa in the lobby,” she told The News this morning.

A reader-commenter at the Mississauga News who attended the concert reports that:

Eve Adams and Brad Butt were asked to hold the baskets for donations at intermission.

Now we’re passing the hat!

MISSISSAUGAWATCH issues a challenge to Mississaugans.  We ask that you match our donation of $250.00 to The Mississauga Food Bank —or donate what you can.

If you wish to donate online to the 25th anniversary of the Mississauga Food Bank, when prompted with “Motivation for giving” simply write “Concert Fund”.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH challenges others match $250.00 Mississauga Food Bank Concert Donation --or whatever you can give.

Video: Maui, Hawaii Firefighters and Police respond to Lahaina July 4th blaze that destroys house

July 6th, 2011  

From the Maui News, “Residents escape when blaze destroys house”

LAHAINA – Fire destroyed a single-family home on Kelawea Street in Lahaina early Monday evening, but residents were able escape the structure without injury, said Lee Mainaga, fire services chief and spokesman for the Maui Fire Department.

“Everybody got out,” Mainaga said, adding that the fire did not spread to other residences.

The fire was reported at 6:20 p.m. and declared under control at 8:15 p.m., he said.

The fire’s cause was under investigation, Mainaga said.

Firefighters responding to the blaze came from Lahaina, Napili and Kahului stations, he said.

One firefighter suffered heat exhaustion and was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center for observation, he said. The firefighter’s condition was not considered life-threatening.

Here’s our video of Maui Emergency Services in action and as is our custom, complete with video transcript.

Maui, Hawaii Firefighters and Police respond to Lahaina July 4th blaze that destroys house (9:01 min)

(Click here to go directly to the clip on YouTube)

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH (reporting from house fire, Lahaina Maui, July 4, 2011)

It is July the 4th, 2011, Independence Day. We’re here in Lahaina, Maui.

I was going to go to the fireworks display down in Lahaina and noticed two fire engines and two police cars hurrying along really quickly and decided to check it out.

[DIP TO WHITE]

It’s a rare opportunity to see these beautiful Maui police cruisers. Usually they’re at their station.

[CROSS FADE]

But to actually see these heroes, because that’s what they are, in action—

[CROSS FADE]

Let’s take this opportunity to admire this Maui police cruiser. Fairly new. Police Interceptor —maybe not. Or.

Maui Police have a handsome logo.

[DIP TO WHITE]

This is the view, July the 4th, 2011.

Mauka, you can see the “L” here for “Lahaina” [sic] that grads at Lahainaluna High School put in every year.

[DIP TO WHITE]

Looks like they might have put the fire out. Now it’s the only problem is over in this area right here.

[CROSS FADE]

Firefighters are such heroes. Mississauga firefighters too, but first chance to get the opportunity to see Maui, Lahaina firefighters. There they go.

[CROSS FADE]

I bet he’s thirsty.

DIP TO WHITE]

This firefighter is keeping an eye on these kind of belligerent flames that are still hanging tough.

[CROSS FADE]

Well, over in that direction is Lahaina. It’s makai. And there’s fireworks that’s going to start at 8 o’clock. That’s really what I came here for.

[CROSS FADE]

Hey. Look at this! There’s something coming up there. He’s moving it somehow. At least I thought he was. Hm. Cool. See that? Oh yeah, of course, in order to illuminate the scene.

[CROSS FADE]

Just to have an idea, if you look, it’s just past sunset now, and the police have pretty much finished, including the fire department here. And I happen to know exactly where they’re going to go once they’re finished their duty here.

Because I’ve videotaped both the Lahaina Fire Department and Police Department.

So I think the story isn’t so much fireworks on the Fourth of July but these people, Emergency Services here putting out a fire.

And I fully expect these people —well, certainly the Fire Department, not necessarily the Police to return to the top of the hill. And I might as well watch the Fourth of July from there.

[CROSS FADE]

So this is Maui Emergency Services. Medical Response. So this is the scene.

But there’s a smell almost like rubber tires that have been burned. Gasp!

This is a Maui Police cruiser. Boy that’s beautiful. We’ll be seeing these shortly. You can bet on it.

Now do I remember where I parked the car? Nope. Oh, I can hear firecrackers going off. A reminder this is the Fourth of July and I was coming to Lahaina to take in the fireworks. Little did I know, look at this.

What I do want to do is go and —up to the hill. You know you make a decision sometimes to cover things and I felt it far more important to cover the —this thing. With so many police cars here and what with me having documented both the Lahaina Fire Department and the Lahaina Police Department.

They’ve been so kind —so open in letting me videotape their cars and their department —their headquarters up on the hill there. So let’s go and watch the fireworks from there.

[CROSS FADE]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH (watching fireworks from hill aside the Lahaina Fire Department and Police Department, July 4, 2011)

Next to the Lahaina Police Department right here. And the Lahaina Fire Department over here. And the first trucks and some of the police officers are busy attending to a fire right now. And I don’t expect them back right away. They had a lot of cleaning up—
