[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT BEGINS]

MAYOR HAZEL MCCALLION (Mississauga Council meeting, February 28, 2007):

We are so well managed in this city. Lead Canada in management.

HAZEL MCCALLION’S HANDLER (Mayor’s “I am running again” Streetsville News Conference, September 9, 2010):

Well, I’m quite excited. At 2 o’clock today I registered. A formality because for many months I’ve been saying to the People of Mississauga that I was going to offer myself to them for another four years.

It’s quite exciting actually, to look forward to the 12th term as Mayor of the Best City in Canada —Mississauga.

MAYOR HAZEL MCCALLION (Mississauga Council meeting, February 28, 2007):

We are so well managed in this city. Lead Canada in management.

PETER MANSBRIDGE (CBC News, June 1, 2010):

Now to a story backed up with some video evidence.

It shows demeaning behaviour in a municipal government workplace. Michael Chung tracked down this exclusive story. Tonight.

MICHELLE CHEUNG (CBC News, June 1, 2010):

Believe it or not, this is happening at work. Two men, with their hands, torsos and legs duct-taped together, forced to lie face-to-face on a table. It happened here at the City of Mississauga’s Transportation and Works Department.

MAYOR HAZEL MCCALLION (Mississauga Council meeting, February 28, 2007):

We are very proud of the management here and the commitment of the employees because behind every successful operation is The Staff. And we are very proud of our Staff.

HAZEL MCCALLION’S HANDLER (Mayor’s “I am running again” Streetsville News Conference, September 9, 2010):

We have many exciting plans for the future and these plans will require a strong, stable team.

MISSISSAUGWATCH into camera (Mayor’s “I am running again” Streetsville News Conference, September 9, 2010):

Here it comes.

HAZEL MCCALLION’S HANDLER (Mayor’s “I am running again” Streetsville News Conference, September 9, 2010):

Working together with the dedicated Staff that we have at the City to make things happen.

MAYOR HAZEL MCCALLION (Mississauga Audit Committee, May 11, 2009):

I’m getting a little frustrated as Mayor as we set up policies and then they’re not followed. And that’s what bothers me. I was in the business —in the private sector and we had millions of dollars in contracts. And it’s been something I’ve been promoting  —is control of the contracts. And that policy was set up because we ran into one vendor who were [sic] behind two millions dollars, I remember.

Anyway.

So now we’re going to set up one up. Fine.

Someone:

Yeah.

MAYOR HAZEL MCCALLION (Mississauga Audit Committee, May 11, 2009):

If we set one up, it better be followed. That is the key. No use setting it up if it’s not going to be followed. You know, I don’t know why there’s such a disregard for policy.

MAYOR HAZEL MCCALLION (Mississauga Council meeting, February 28, 2007):

We are so well managed in this city. Lead Canada in management.

HAZEL MCCALLION QUOTE ON STAFF NON-COMPLIANCE TO POLICIES (AUDIT COMMITTEE 090511) "There seems to be a complete disregard for policy."
