In yesterday’s blog, “Video: Hazel McCallion’s swanky $350.00 per ticket 90th Birthday Bash sees Sheridan Campus named after her” I shared the first in a series of Hazel-McCallion’s-90th-Birthday-Party-that’s-“not-a-party” videos.

Today, for the record, here’s our second Hazel McCallion 90th Birthday Party that’s “not a party” video —complete with transcript.

It is Saturday, February 12th, 2011 and I’m parked here in a very primo spot at the Mississauga Convention Centre. It is 5:34 pm and the reception for Hazel McCallion’s 90th birthday begins in roughly half an hour.

Now just to be clear, tickets for this particular event are $350.00 each. And yes, I’ve actually spent $350.00 to be in there tonight. And I just want to go onto the record as to why.

There’s been a lot of discussion about Mayors’ Galas both in Brampton and here in MYTHissauga. And from what I can gather and having read about the Brampton Mayor’s Gala and Hazel McCallion’s golf tournament galas and the November Galas and now this particular Gala —and what we know from the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry, I gotta go! I’ve got to go!

Because there’ll be something like, I believe, 1300 people showing up at this [sic actually 1000 were expected]. And the 90th being a big thing, I figure that if Corruption were a physical thing with Mass and Volume, it’s likely difficult to find more Corruption under any one roof in Canada today than right in that building.

And I have to see it.

I have to see all of those people who are part of the Cult of Hazel.

Announcer (Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are about to get underway. Please take your seats. Ladies and Gentlemen…

MISSISSAUGAWATCH (while videotaping Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

Okay, this is Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday Bash or party that is “not a party” over here. And the good news is this is the Media area and I was told that videotaping and Media coverage can be from this area.

And so I’m taking the opportunity right now to do some videotaping. Uh, it’s quite the celebration here. Oh, let’s take a look at that.

I’d love to stay with the Media, unfortunately I have a TABLE 68 somewhere in here. So I gotta to be there which means I have to be there and I can’t videotape anymore. But, oh, and I should point out, I had one glass of wine, took maybe three sips, went to the washroom and by the time I got back it was gone. So anyway, here it is.

[Gala video-screen displays “90TH BIRTHDAY MAYOR MCCALLION” heralded by Metro Goldwyn Mayer theme]

Now remember what Ron Starr said. It’s a party that’s “not a party”.

Announcer (Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

Ladies and Gentlemen, please stand and welcome our Guest of Honour, Mayor Hazel McCallion and this evening’s head table guests.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH (while videotaping Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

And the Media is right here. And I can’t think of a better place to be than right —or they’re pointing to, over here. Media’s here.

[Hazel McCallion and guests enter escorted by Peel Police Pipe Band]

Oh, going right by the Media here.

Sheridan Rep (Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

You can go up if you like.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH (while videotaping Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

Oh, is this where it is? No, no, I’m good.

Oh, I see, she’s going right there.

[Hazel McCallion walks up the steps followed by Jim Flaherty, William G. Davis et al]

There’s the Media. Oh, and I can see over here.

[PUSH RIGHT]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH (reporting from parking lot prior to Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

Um, I guess the other thing would be, Hazel’s Seven Councillors will be there. So expect Tovey, Fonseca, The Two Sisters Saito-and-Mahoney. Dalton McGuinty has got to be showing up. So all of the MPs and MPPs here in MYTHissauga will be here.

I expect Jim Murray to be here. Lots to say about Jim Murray, but I’ll save that for another time.

Oh yeah! You know who else I expect to be here?! David O’Brien! I also expect Michael Nobrega to be here!

Like alllllll of them. The entire Enersource Board. Ron Starr, forgot to mention him too.

Like in other words, THE BIGGEST STINKERS IN ONTARIO ARE GOING TO BE RIGHT HERE! That’s why it’s so fascinating.

Sheridan College President Dr. Jeff Zabudsky (Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Hazel McCallion Campus!

[949 out of 950 guests. Applause, cheers]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH  (while videotaping Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

Oh my Gawd!

Oh my Gawd!

[PUSH RIGHT. Camera aimed so MISSISSAUGAWATCH and Hazel McCallion are in same field of vision]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH  (while videotaping Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

What is there to say?

I still don’t quite get how this Mississauga Campus could be named Hazel McCallion Campus. It’s —George Orwell was so right in who controls the past controls the present, who controls the present controls the future [sic].

But above all, who controls the Money, who controls the Media, who controls the Communication and the Propaganda, triumphs.

And this is a Triumph here for uh —you know I’m still gob-smacked, I’m still gob-smacked, how –just how, how you can get this.

And, uh —I’m reminded of what a 19-year old wrote me in email. The System is too corrupt —there is no way to fix it. There it is back there, testimony to the fact that he’s right.

And you gotta wonder, you gotta wonder how many other politicians that we’ve learned about from Sir John A. Macdonald forward was really the truth or whether it was just revisionist history, like what we see here.

[PUSH RIGHT. Camera pans room and dance floor]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH  (while videotaping Hazel McCallion’s 90th Birthday $350.00 a ticket Party, February 12, 2011)

I gotta say that the $350-bucks I just spent, I could have spent on a camera. However, this was worth it.

I mean who would have f***in‘ thought that one of the announcements was that they were going to call this the Hazel McCallion Sheridan Campus?

The image I used in yesterday’s blog is worth repeating….

MISSISSAUGA CITY HALL (AMO, OMERS, MYTHissauga Inc) ---morally beyond redemption

…the system is CORRUPT and this is why there is youth violence this is why there are guns on the street and drugs in the hands of children the youth are fighting with the system because it is CORRUPT there is no way to fix it because the people higher up are sitting nice in their big leather chairs, driving their nice cars, living their perfect life when some people in this world have to work hard to get by and even by doing so they get nothing, and after they realize how hard they have to work to get by they break down and no longer want to live life being part of the system because they realize that living life by the rules of the system gets you no where because it is CORRUPT!

And only wish to add…
