Spreadsheet into percentage of Hazel McCallion’s votes by Mississauga polling stations provides unique insights

November 18th, 2010  

Want to know the breakdown of Percentage Support for Hazel McCallion by polling station? Well we did!

As regular readers know, I, The Mississauga Muse, registered for the office of mayor back on January 4, 2010 as part of my research into City of Mississauga municipal governance and how it relates to the Roots of Youth Violence.

Over the last few days we’ve taken the City of Mississauga’s PDF file of the official election results and converted them into a spreadsheet. Yesterday we reported the most preliminary of preliminary findings in the Blog, “Mississauga News quotes Councillors: VOTERS’ LIST WAS A “MESS”. Why didn’t the City check its own Official Election Results?!” That Blog provided insight into how Hazel McCallion’s 107,643 votes were distributed both by ward and polling stations. These data however don’t necessarily show support for McCallion because it was possible for her to receive the highest number of votes in a polling station where she only got 40-50% of Mayor’s ballots cast—a plurality, in other words.

It was crucial then to create another spreadsheet showing McCallion’s support by polling station based on the simple equation “Votes for Hazel McCallion” divided by “Total Ballots Cast for Mayor”.  Example. There are 10 ballets cast for Mayor. 8 were for Hazel McCallion. 8/10 or 80% support at that polling station. These data would provide true insight into McCallion support “strongholds” and also pinpoint areas of dissatisfaction with the Mayor.

And that’s what we did here. This table is presented from strongest support (100% of votes at Meadowcroft Constitution, a retirement home) to lowest (39.52% at Ridgeview Public School Day 4). While 100% of 10 ballots cast for Mayor isn’t such a big deal, receiving only 39.52% out of 554 ballots cast for mayor at Ridgeview Public School is.  At first we assumed the 39.52% reflected dissatisfaction with Hazel McCallion. But examining Ridgeview Public School Day 4 polling station results for both McCallion and Councillor Eve Adams confirms something quite different is afoot.

And we’ll leave it at that!

As part of my research into the Roots of Youth Violence we’ll also create polling station breakdowns like this for all Wards. (More commentary after the table.) So. Here’s the spreadsheet.

Also, check out the Mississauga News article, “Szabo calls for end to ‘damaging’ statements” and Mississauga South MP Paul Szabo tabling Bill 596 in the House of Commons, “calling for ethical criteria for politicians regarding their privileges, immunities and powers.”

I for one, have lost faith and agree fully with the 19-year old youth who emailed me stating “The System is CORRUPT there is no way to fix it”. Freedom of Information and four years of audio/videotaping “The Best City in Canada” whose mayor claimed they “lead Canada in management” has convinced me that our lying public institutions are morally beyond redemption.

The only thing citizens can do is inform themselves in order to protect themselves from their own Federal, Provincial, and Municipal governments.

UPDATE: November 18, 2010, 9:10 pm. This morning I received an email from the City of Mississauga insisting that I remove the YouTube video “Mississauga mayoral candidate, “The Mississauga Muse” videotapes casting her vote” stating:

Please note that this is a violation of Section 49 (3) of the Municipal Elections Act which states:

No elector shall show his or her marked ballot to any person so as to reveal how he or she has voted, except in connection with obtaining assistance in voting under paragraph 4 of subsection 52 (1).

I respectfully request that you arrange to remove this video from all public sources immediately.

As a result I was forced to rework the video in order to comply with the Act. Since I was going through this trouble, I decided to provide the entire raw video from camera off to camera on in order to prove that the scrutineers knew that I had a camera, helped me find a marker and at no time informed me I was in any kind of violation. To comply with the Act in the replacement video, I BLACKED OUT my marking of the ballot and used the audio track only.

I’m quite happy about this replacement video if for no other reason than it removes all doubt that I did anything covert. So. Onto the video.

City of Mississauga emails, “Remove YouTube video. You are in violation of Municipal Elections Act” (4:20 min)
