For context, 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.

So what does Hazel McCallion tell the Toronto Star?

“One (Toronto) councillor made the comment that the staff must do what the mayor says … that’s not the way it’s done here. We do not tell the staff what to bring forward in a report,”

"One (Toronto) councillor made the comment that the staff must do what the mayor says ... that’s not the way it’s done here. We do not tell the staff what to bring forward in a report," Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion said during a Wednesday council discussion of the politically motivated firing of TTC chief Gary Webster.

Carmen Corbasson: Eulogy by Councillor Nando Iannicca. Trinity Anglican Church, Port Credit

March 18th, 2012  

 

‘Ike aku, ‘ike mai, kokua aku kokua mai; pela iho la ka nohana ‘ohana.
Translation: Recognize others, be recognized, help others, be helped; such is a family relationship.

 

And for the record, like Councillor Iannicca, Councillor Corbasson is Family to me.

This blog is dedicated to Councillor Carmen Corbasson. Special thanks to Councillor Nando Iannicca.

Note, this transcript contains numerous [inaudible] notations. I did this rather than guess at what Councillor Iannicca may have said.

Carmen Corbasson: Eulogy by Councillor Nando Iannicca. Trinity Anglican Church, Port Credit (9:00 min)

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


[TRANSCRIPT BEGINS]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH parked opposite Trinity Anglican Church, Port Credit/Mississauga, March 16, 2012

It is Friday, March the 16th, 2012 and I’m parked here opposite Trinity Anglican Church in Port Credit.

And the services have been completed for Councillor Carmen Corbasson.

And I won’t give a complete run-down of everything that happened and everything that I witnessed. I think what I’d rather do at this point is just introduce the eulogy given by Councillor Corbasson’s close friend and colleague, Councillor Nando Iannicca.

Councillor Iannicca gave a superb, superb speech —and good-bye. And —beautifully summarized —just to perfection, what Councillor Corbasson represented.

He basically said it was just the best that we as citizens could hope for in someone who represents us.

[DIP TO BLACK[

Councillor Nando Iannicca about Carmen Corbasson, Trinity Anglican Church, Port Credit/Mississauga, March 16, 2012

—Judy, thank you.

My thanks also to Lisa, Julie, Sebastion and the family. And I’ve been given a handful of privileges in my life but none greater than the one I have now. [inaudible] all of my Council colleagues to express some thoughts about my friend, Carmen Corbasson.

Was Kind. Compassionate. Caring. Comforting. Consoling. Civil. Sympathetic.

Emphatic.

Loyal. Selfless. Proper. Classy.

Dedicated. Hard-working. Committed. Respectful. Humble. Intelligent. Wise. Forgiving. Grateful.

Vibrant.

Humane. Nurturing. Loving.

And if you’re like me, you’re going over the list that I missed! Because that described Carmen Corbasson. The Carmen that we all knew.

I remember first meeting Carmen in 1988 when I was elected a very, very young member of Council. And amongst the many blessings in my life two of them were my executive assistant Brenda Robertson and Carmen, who worked as executive assistants at the time. Carmen, of course, worked for Harold Kennedy.

And they were both caring, compassionate and they were the older sisters that I’ve never had.

They were a real tempering influence. And you need people like Carmen and her tempering influence when some of the other people around the table are [inaudible]. And she does that. She was our steady hand at Council.

I remember one of the endearing traits was any time you met Carmen her first question was, “How’s your family?” “How’s everybody doing?” And she meant it sincerely.

She took on a great fondness for my wife, Ann-Marie, who also loved her dearly, and would remark that I married very well in life. And I agree.

And it was interesting to me that Carmen had some of the attributes that my wife has as well. She also had some French descent in her. I don’t think you knew that. And she also had some Russian descent in her.

And she reminds me of another character that lived in my ward, the Grand Duchess Olga, who was part of the Russian royal family who lived in Ward 7 on Camilla Road.

And the reason she brings Carmen to mind is that she had that same noble pedigree, but a very humble demeanour.

[video-left: Councillor Corbasson at re-opening of Memorial Park, Port Credit September 16, 2006
video-right: Carmen Corbasson at October 4, 2006 Lakeview Ratepayers Association meeting]

And that was our Carmen.

I remember another day when we were sitting at Council Chamber, and much to a lot of people’s surprise —there in Council, any special announcements and Councillor Kennedy said “Yes, [inaudible] I will not be seeking public office again.”

When it concluded, I marched up the stairs and I went right to Carmen’s office. And I said, “Carmen [inaudible]. What a wonderful opportunity for you.”

She was befuddled! She was shocked!

As opposed to the politics that we’re used to today. “Where is Opportunity? What can I get out of this?”, she was “What can I possibly bring?”, “How can I serve?”, “Am I worthy?”

[video-left: March 28, 2007 video of Councillor Corbasson defending the Port Credit Library
video-right: Carmen Corbasson supporting the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry, October 28, 2010]

And she carried it for all her years as a public official.

She really was in many ways an anomaly of public life because she is what people would hope politicians aspire to be [inaudible].

MISSISSAUGAWATCH, Trinity Anglican Church, Port Credit/Mississauga, March 16, 2012

[whispering into audio recorder] Iannicca nailed that dead-on. He’s absolutely right.

[video-left: May8, 2007 video of Councillor Corbasson, Enersource debate
video-right: Carmen Corbasson supporting the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry, October 28, 2010]

Councillor Nando Iannicca about Carmen Corbasson, Trinity Anglican Church, Port Credit/Mississauga, March 16, 2012

I think George Carlson said it very well when he said, “She was a dove in a sea of hawks.”

[inaudible] tell me if you can picture this. [inaudible] Councillor Carlson, but my view is that, regrettably at times, politics is a combative blood sport. She was our Florence Nightingale.

She was the kindest, most loving nurse you could hope for that said, “There may be a war, but can we have peace as well?” And it’s what she brought to the table more than anything.

In that regard I have another interesting anecdote for you.

It was remarkable to think that I was given the privilege to be a pall bearer. And as I was performing that service, [inaudible] in comes Brad Butt and ex-husband Bill. You know it’s remarkable, they say if you want to test the measure of a woman or a man upon their death, have their foes or their enemies speak to them. To their character.

We would but we can’t find any.

So it is that former political adversaries and an ex-husband are pall-bearers at your funeral. You don’t see that on Reality Television very much.

In terms of moving forward, the last thought that I’d leave with you —a couple of thoughts.

[video-left: May 8, 2007 video of Councillor Corbasson, Enersource debate
video-right: Carmen Corbasson debate regarding Integrity Commissioner, September, 2010]

I remember just before Christmas, Carmen and I were having lunch —amongst others, and she knew that this surgery was coming forward. Had been pending, let’s say, for a while.

And to Julie, to Lisa, to Sebastion —I’ve never told you this but I will share it with you now.

All she could think about was none of the surgery in and of itself as it related to her. It was “I hope it all works out. I hope I come out one hundred percent —for my girls. For Sebastion. For my grandchildren. Nando, that’s what I’m really concerned about.”

[video-left: May 23, 2007 video of Councillor Corbasson, Power Plants debate
video-right: Carmen Corbasson debate regarding Integrity Commissioner, September, 2010]

And of course, I answered, you will be fine.

And even in that moment, where most of us would be wondering what the operation looks like, and you have every right to be selfish, she was not. She thought of others.

My final words, I hope are some words of comfort to a dear friend.

You know it’s interesting [inaudible] that I [inaudible] Sebastion and Carmen longer than anybody here in the room. And in fact I’ll take some credit I think for having introduced them. Sebastion is one of my very dear friends along with Carlo who’s here today and [inaudible] who became known as The Three Amigos during her first election campaign.

And Carmen struck up quite a relationship. And Carmen, as you know Sebastion, was your soul-mate, was your partner.

In trying to comfort Sebastion, Ann-Marie and I had him over to the house with some of his friends. And you can appreciate the first thoughts are shock —that we all had.

Then we turned [inaudible] and Sebastion said something very interesting.

He said, “Wouldn’t the world be a better place if everybody had a little bit of Carmen in them?” [inaudible] question.

[inaudible] and say, “Why? Why does God take the Good?” [inaudible]

In looking back at that, the thought that I leave with you, Sebastion is I think —and this isn’t politics and it isn’t the rhetoric of a politician— the thought that I leave you with and all of you with is let’s take that point and say, “What a blessing that we had her.” Many others did not. And will never have a friend like that.

And to you, Sebastion, you are the man you are because of her.

To her daughters, the legacy that she leaves behind —the children.

So let’s rejoice in her life. God wants good people. He just took one. And let’s hope, and trust, that she quite deservedly rests in peace.

Carmen Corbasson fought for the Port Credit Library, “made the right decision —and left a wonderful legacy in Port Credit”

March 11th, 2012  

Yesterday’s Blog, Councillor Carmen Corbasson, Mississauga’s Finestkind Councillor –Champion of The Library was written entirely by her friend, Irene Gabon, a Ward 1 resident of the Sherway community for 50 years.

Today it’s my turn —and time to let Councillor Corbasson speak.

What follows is yesterday’s video, complete with transcript. Dedicated to Councillor Corbasson with love and unreserved respect.

Councillor Carmen Corbasson, Mississauga’s Finestkind Councillor –Champion of The Library (8:39 min)

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

Please note. In this video I state that the day is Sunday, March 10, 2012 when it was actually Saturday. Next, the Mississauga News reported Councillor Corbasson’s age as 62 which is correct. I then stated, “And just for context, she was 62, I’m 63.” Apologies once again. Councillor Corbasson was born on December 3rd, 1949. I was born in October 1949 and that also makes me 62! This also means I skipped being 61…

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH parked beside Toronto General Hospital, March 10, 2012

It is Sunday [sic], March the 10th, 2012. [long pause]

And I’m here at [long pause] and I’m here at Toronto General Hospital.

I got an email this morning —that Councillor Carmen Corbasson died after surgery. And —a bit later, the Toronto S-the Mississauga News came out with a —an article.

Can’t believe I’m reading this. But I have to.

Carmen Corbasson dies after surgery

[crying]

By Alex Consiglio

March 12th, 2000-no—

March 10, 2012

Former longtime Ward 1 Councillor Carmen Corbasson has died this morning after complications arose during surgery last night.
Corbasson, 62, lived and worked in Mississauga most of her life and was first elected to City Council in 1994.

And just for context, she was 62, I’m 63.  [long pause]

She has two daughters, Lisa and Julie, and two grandchildren, Summer and Gabriel.

Mississauga-Streetsville MP Brad Butt knew Corbasson well and said everyone is in shock over her death after what was supposed to be routine surgery.

And that’s what I was told too. [long pause] “Routine surgery”. [long pause]

“She was the most giving person,” said Butt. “She always put the community first, she was so selfless.”

Butt said that’s how Corbasson would want to be remembered, as always putting other people, and her community, first.

Judy Imerson, the former Director of the Editorial— try that again.

Judy Imerson, the former Director of Editorial for The Mississauga News who was a close friend of Corbasson, remembers her as the most “wonderful, honest, hard-working person who cared about everybody.”

MISSISSAUGAWATCH driving west on Lakeshore to the Port Credit Library, March 10, 2012

I’m right here in Port Credit. Hurontario and Lakeshore Road.

And I’m just going to— redo a drive that I did back in March 2007.

And there was a threat that the Gray House was going down over here. And I was driving this way towards the Port Credit library.

And I’m dedicating this to Councillor Carmen Corbasson.

[2nd video Councillor Carmen Corbasson fighting to save Port Credit Library, Mississauga Council meeting March 28, 2007]

Carmen Corbasson, Port Credit Library debate, Mississauga Council meeting March 28, 2007

Thank you, Madam Mayor. Just-just a couple of very brief comments now that I’ve heard from my colleagues. I-I hope that you’re not insinuating that I don’t have the City’s best interests at heart.

And I-I’m sure you’re not. Sure you’re not, because you referred to me as “the Ward Councillor” and how you feel that’s the way I need to vote.

I do have the City’s best interests at heart and I certainly have Port Credit’s best interests at heart.

Again, for all the reasons I’d outlined at the last week’s committee meeting, I feel very very strongly that the Library should remain where it is.

And it’s not just because of the overwhelming support from the community for that decision.

Yes, they are key stakeholders. And they are a very large piece of the puzzle.

But this is a decision that we, as a Council, as a community, as a Ward Councillor are able to make in and of itself. I don’t have to worry about land use, heights, density, the Ontario Municipal Board overruling me.

This is a decision that I strongly believe that I will look back on and know I made the right decision —and left a wonderful legacy in Port Credit, with our branch library being located in Port Credit Memorial Park.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH pulling into the Port Credit Library, Memorial Park, March 10, 2012

Take a look. Take a look at what a beautiful place —for a library.

And there’s actually —I’m going to drive here —right to the corner there. You can actually see people. And I don’t want to get too close cuz you don’t want to invade privacy.

But they’re sitting there in orange sofas. Reading —one’s reading the newspaper. Couple others are talking-story.

And over, maybe you can see it, there’s the Credit River, to the right there.

And isn’t it just beautiful.

FADE TO BLACK and TRIBUTE

She was a person of integrity who said, ‘if it’s right, it’s right’ and ‘if it’s wrong, it’s wrong,’

She lived by the principles she believed in, She always did her homework, even though
she isn’t one of the outspoken ones on council.

But when she said something, it was meaningful, She was a straight shooter and probably
the best councillor we ever had.

From the MINUTES SESSION 5 

THE COUNCIL OF
THE CORPORATION OF THE CITY OF MISSISSAUGA
(www.mississauga.ca)
MINUTES SESSION 5  WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2007, 9:00 A.M.

(f) Port Credit Branch Library (Ward 1)

Frank Giannone, President of FRAM Building Group appeared before Council to
express appreciation to all those involved in the issue of the relocation of the Port
Credit Branch Library. Mr. Giannone advised that he does not have an alternate
use for the Grey House within the development and would continue to work with
the City regarding the development.

Council – 6 – March 28, 2007

Councillor Frank Dale advised that he had been misquoted in the Mississauga
News as supporting the staff recommendation to relocate the Port Credit Branch
Library when, in fact, he was opposed to the relocation.
Mayor McCallion circulated a copy of her briefing notes on her position regarding
the relocation of the Port Credit Branch Library and asked that these notes be
recorded for future reference. She advised that she reviewed the comments from
the residents who are in favour of relocating the library and that she agreed with
many of the reasons. The Mayor advised that she still felt strongly that the library
should be relocated. The Mayor reviewed her briefing notes and touched on the
following reasons for the relocation:

• The new branch would be within comfortable walking distance (800
metres or one-half mile) of 1558 households (50% more than existing.)
• Growth is expected along the Hurontario corridor due to intensification,
providing good access to even more households.
• The new location is closer to 15% more users based on a sample of library
books in circulation.
• Better access to transit. Hurontario is served by over three times as many
buses as Lakeshore. Proximity to the Port Credit GO Train Station.
Future direct access to proposed light rail transit (LRT).
• Four schools are within 800 metres of the new location.
• Linkage to library provides sustainable adaptive reuse of the Gray House.
• Proposal to relocate Lions Hall on second floor above the branch. Use
library staff to manage and program the hall and library meeting rooms.
• Additional parkland to be gratuitously dedicated to the City valued in
excess of $500,000.
• By relocating the Lions Hall, the pool change rooms can be renovated in a
manner that would be “sympathetic” to the park.
• New branch will have a longer life expectancy.
• Direct access to underground parking.
• New branch will have optimum internal layout.

Reasons to avoid renovating the existing branch:

• The branch was constructed almost 50 years ago on a landfill site,
although the methane gas problems are under control.
• Existing branch blocks view to Memorial Park.
• Potential exists to build a parking structure on the municipal parking lot,
creating a physical conflict between the branch and the new structure.

The Ward Councillor Carmen Corbasson reiterated her comments made at
General Committee on March 21, 2007, and the reasons why the library should
remain in its present location. Councillor Corbasson agreed that there are
residents who do support the relocation; however, the majority of the residents in
Port Credit support that the library remain where is it. Members of Council
provided their views regarding the relocation of the Port Credit Branch Library.

Council – 7 – March 28, 2007

Councillor Corbasson asked that the General Committee Recommendation GC-
0123-2007 be brought forward. A recorded vote was requested regarding this
issue with the following results:

1. That the respective deputations by the following individuals to General
Committee at its meeting on March 21, 2007, expressing their concerns
regarding the relocation of the Port Credit Branch library, be received for
information:

March 10th, 2012  

 

 

A prayer for Carmen and about Carmen
Prayer of St. Francis

 

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.

Where there is injury, pardon.

Where there is doubt, faith.

Where there is despair, hope.

Where there is darkness, light.

Where there is sadness, joy.

 

O Divine Master,

grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;

to be understood, as to understand;

to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive.

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Amen.

Bonnie Crombie, Cyber-stalking –and the Truth about “ForTheTruth”

March 9th, 2012  

Something really weird happened to me at the February 7, 2012 Mississauga Election Campaign Finances Committee hearing.

What follows is my video report complete with transcript.

It is what it is…

Bonnie Crombie, Cyber-stalking and the Mississauga Elections Finance Committee hearing  (7:51 min)

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


[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT BEGINS]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH parked at northern entrance of Mississauga City Hall, February 9, 2012

It is Thursday, February the 9th, 2012.

Just want to file a report. And I just want to talk about what happened on Tuesday, February the 7th.

There was a hearing right here at Mississauga City Hall of the Elections Finance Committee. And it dealt with allegations brought against Councillor Bonnie Crombie by Mark Cashin and Cecil Young.

And I was fortunate enough to witness it and videotape the whole thing. And I mean the whole thing.

Now because I have videotape, I don’t have to give my impressions of the actual hearing.

What I do want to document today is something absolutely bizarre. I mean just Twilight Zoney, that happened during one of the recesses in the hearing.

At one point, Councillor Crombie’s son, Jonathan, just out of the blue, came up to me, smiled, introduced his friend —and then just started to talk me up.

And seemed nice enough.

And I’m not sure what happened. Why it happened. But, smiled at me, said he liked my blog and certainly his demeanor, his smile —the way he looked me in the eyes, was of somebody who genuinely meant what he said!

And for the life of me, it would be like meeting someone at a party over hors d’oeuvres or something. Exchanging the most —the warmest of pleasantries.

And it’s almost like this sort of separation of mind and body because my mind recoiled and was asking, “What’s going on here?”. Because it being February the 7th, it wasn’t even three months before that his mother had accused me of “cyber-stalking” her children —including her youngest daughter!

“Cyber-stalking”!

And cyber-stalking is a criminal offense!

And it wasn’t just that Councillor Crombie accused me of this —out of the blue, she did this in front of Mississauga Council in front of Rogers Cable 10 TV.

Accused me of “cyber-stalking” her kids and her young daughter!

It was devastating! Absolutely devastating!

So imagine, less than three months later, let’s see, November, December, January, February, yeah. Less than three months later one of her children is walking up to me, friendly like none of this ever happened.

That these “cyber-stalking” allegations didn’t make it on Rogers Cable 10 and, in several newspapers across the country.

And, let’s not forget that not only did she accuse me of “cyber-stalking” but also of being “ForTheTruth”.

“ForTheTruth” is an alias that’s used for an online commenter at the Mississauga News. “ForTheTruth” also “FTT” —same thing.

Councillor Bonnie Crombie, Mississauga Council, November 9, 2011

Thank you. I don’t know who you’re here [sic] who you are today. Are you Ursula? Are you The Muse? The “FTT”? “ForTheTruth”?

MISSISSAUGAWATCH parked at northern entrance of Mississauga City Hall, February 9, 2012

I am not “ForTheTruth”! I am not that individual at all.

I only go on as “MISSISSAUGAWATCH” and “The Mississauga Muse”. Both are identifiable individuals —me!

So that was a reckless allegation made by his mother less that three months prior that was devastating!

No one has hurt me as badly as Bonnie Crombie —ever.

And now her son is going up to me as if he was [sic] a fan of mine.

And not just that.

He then asked if he —if I minded having a picture taken with him and his friend. So he wanted me to be in a photograph with him and his friend!

What?!

That’s what I meant by Twilight Zoney. I don’t understand any of it.

You know it’s not the behaviour of somebody who believes that I was cyber-stalking!

And the other thing is, I’m not too bright. It sometimes takes me a while to play something through my head to really understand the implications. And worse, sometimes it takes me years! [laughs] Only, yeah, really, years to understand the implications of something that I witnessed or videotaped.

The other thing that I only think about now is, if he was a regular reader, if he read my blog, why wasn’t he upset at my recent entries about City Security and their fraudulent complaints system? And how they abuse kids.

And how something as simple as, well, sitting in the wrong place gets you threats of being “taken down” and arrested.

Why isn’t Jonathan, a “Liberal” upset about that? Why isn’t he saying, look, you know I read your blog and why doesn’t he take me aside and say, you know, it bothers me that you’ve got this Freedom of Information on City Security, tell me more about it.

No, it was, “Can I have a picture with you?”

What?!

You know when things don’t make sense to me, it’s like my brain just kind of stops, seizes, and ——goes into some kind of —arrest. And doesn’t process information for a while. And there’s this delay.

And it’s part of the reason why I’m not really a good public speaker or good on my feet. Because when-when, something —it’s quite easy to discombobulate me.

And it’s usually something illogical. And this was —illogical. No idea why it happened. No idea.

And I can’t bear Jonathan ill. Because —I can’t rule out, the possibility, that he was genuine.

And I always like to give people the benefit of the doubt. Believe it or not. Believe it or not.

[Grabs camera and aims it up through the car’s sunroof and at Mississauga City Hall’s yellow bricks]

Let me see what have I got here. Oops. Forgot you can pull open the windows. Ah yes.

See those bricks?

Each one of those bricks represents a Lie.

How many Lies —lie in those bricks and mortars?

Turning camera off.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH during break, Mississauga Elections Finance Committee hearing, February 7, 2012

You know you always find that an Act or piece of legislation, to a reasonable person, looks fine. You know, you read it and everything else.

It’s when you try to apply it, that you always —you always get screwed over.

You always find out that somewhere there’s a loophole.

You know, I mean, I really respect Cashin and Young for even bringing this forward like they did. But you know, when you’re going against an industrial-strength lawyer and the —assets, and I mean like this (signalling money) that Crombie can bring to this, you’re screwed.

Like I don’t believe for a second that they’re going to go with an audit.

I think the lawyers won. Again.

However, that said, I’m really impressed with the Chair of this Committee. He did a good job all the way through and gave both sides a really fair hearing.

So, we’ll see what happens. But —I’m not hopeful.

Gonna turn the camera this way

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT ENDS as Committee re-enter the room]

Yes. That’s it. Short blog today. Simply for the record.

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT BEGINS]

Rick Mercer Rick’s Rant for February 28, 2012.

I have always loved politics. Politics has always been my baseball.

I love the competition. I love the ideas. I love the brilliance, the pomposity and the idiocy and some of the great characters that practise the art.

And I have always believed it’s an art worth practising.

Now I understand, in Canadian politics, the bar is very low.

Let’s face it, you’ve got to get on your stomach and crawl to fit under there. But there has always been a little bit of sunshine. There’s always been a little bit of light.

This past week, I’m not so sure.

Robocalls.

We now know that in the last Federal election, hundreds of thousands of calls came out of Edmonton to Liberal and NDP voters in eighteen different ridings, claiming that they were calling from Elections Canada. Lying. Sending people to voting booths that didn’t exist.

And what’s really freaking me out —is that I’m not angry. Which is very bad sign, because anger is my cardio.

I think I may be disappointed. Either that or I’m having a stroke.

Now I understand, in politics there have always been dirty tricks. But this is not some drunks tearing down some posters. This is not even a negative ad campaign.

This is Big Money and Technology targeting people who want to vote and trying to physically stop them.

We can’t have this!

You put ten Canadian in a room, they’ll disagree on ten things. Fine. But we have always agreed that voting is a fundamental right!

This is not a Left or a Right thing. This is just a Thing.

If we don’t believe in that, what else do we have to believe in?

If stopping people who want to vote from doing so becomes the new normal we will have hit a new low in the sewer that is Canadian politics.

Keep this up and we’ll need a snorkel to get under that bar. Any deeper? We all drown.


[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT ENDS]

Actually, I don’t agree with Rick Mercer about his “We all drown” part.

As Mercer had already pointed out in his rant, “This is Big Money and Technology targeting people who want to vote and trying to physically stop them.”

So, no, we don’t all drown.

Big Money prevails!
