Hazel McCallion secures her Legacy adding Bonnie Crombie to MYTHissauga’s stable of puppet-councillors.
September 19th, 2011
With Bonnie Crombie now added to Hazel McCallion’s existing stable of six puppet-councillors, Mississauga Council now has unfettered license to fabricate, deceive and lie to the public. All in the best interests of the City, of course.
With Crombie there are now Seven: Tovey, Mullin, Fonseca, Crombie, Starr, Mahoney and Saito.
Cronyism (so rife and so Out There in MYTHissauga) is having one joyous field day.
I’m reminded of Hazel McCallion’s September 8, 2010 speech when she announced she’d run for a 12th term.
“And I’m not going to conduct a campaign. I am not going to raise money. I’m not going to have signs— because I’ll tell you anyone that wants to donate money to a Mayor’s campaign, I plead with you, to donate it to all the charitable organizations, whose under pressure second-to-none. The Food Bank. The Children’s Aid— the Salvation Army and all those that are struggling, struggling today to look after the people. The Poverty that’s in our city. The Unemployed that are in our city.
So how can I, as Mayor, waste money on signs and literature?”
A year later you find she’s got the Mississauga Board of Trade and the Mississauga Chinese Business Association campaigning for her and she’s not just backed by millions and millions but she has her own ROGERS Cable 10 TV station as well!
Funny how the Mississauga News never mentioned that… or any other media for that matter.
The Mississauga News had to know the millions and millions of dollars greasing McCallion’s campaign machinery. Ron Lenyk sure did. Mississauga Board of Trade. Mississauga Chinese Business Association. Shipp, Kaneff, Nobrega, O’Brien, Starr, Murray… MYTHissauga Inc’s Secret Society.

Just 241 votes separated Parrish from Crombie. To gauge how HUGE Eve and Peter Adams played in Crombie’s win check out his 1,347 votes… Parrish sure could have used them.
And let’s not forget to factor in McCallion’s Brazil “trade mission” engineered to delay the release of the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry report until after the Ward 5 by-election.
Seriously. With Hazel McCallion’s solid wall of puppet councillors, does anyone remotely believe the Inquiry report even matters? There will be nothing in the Inquiry report’s contents that a couple of hastily drafted and pro-forma’d Corporate By-Laws can’t cure! And McCallion can count on her Seven Rubber Stamps to rubber-stamp them.
Orwell again: ‘Who controls the past,’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’
F*** me. The Inquiry Commission Counsel even let McCallion control the report!
“This is the way the world ends: This is the way the world ends: This is the way the world ends: Not with a bang but a whimper.”

Get ready for a perpetually-smiling Barbie Doll former public relations hack sitting in the Ward 5 chair.
Hmmm. This just in.
Quote from Hazel McCallion:
“I hope the one that finished close to her will forget any attempts to be on the council of the great City of Mississauga.”
And I hope that public servants who lie to “maintain” the public trust spend Eternity straddling the fifth-lowest rung in Hell.
