Councillor Jim Tovey mocks Federal employees during Mississauga Council telecast –ignores City Staff’s DUCT TAPE fest

December 19th, 2012  

It’s a good thing for Councillor Jim Tovey that the Mississauga Council Code of Conduct’s Rule No. 13 doesn’t apply to Federal employees!

Rule No. 13

Conduct Respecting Staff:

4. No Member shall maliciously or falsely impugn or injure the professional or ethical
reputation or the prospects or practice of staff, and all Members shall show respect for the
professional capacities of the staff of the City.

Here’s video of Tovey, Chair of the City’s Governance Committee, mocking the professional capacities of Ottawa’s Federal employees. And conveniently forgetting City of Mississauga employees’ love for duct tape bondage fests.

As always, the video, complete with video transcript.

Mississauga Councillor Jim Tovey

When I was in Ottawa two weeks ago —I was walking over to Parliament Hill for a meeting.

And there was a back hoe operator, because they were doing some trench work in the front of Parliament Hill. And he was lowering down the shoring supports.

And there was [sic] eight Federal workers standing on [sic] the fence —like this. Just leaning over and watching the trench.

I have never seen any City of Mississauga workers do that.

And if somebody has, please, send me an email and let me know.

I don’t think our Staff —quite sure our Staff won’t be doing anything like that.

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.

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

CBC News has also confirmed with other employees who declined to go on camera for fear of reprisals, these kinds of incidents would sometimes happen two to three times a week.

Have you seen City of Mississauga employees “do that”? Here’s Councillor Jim Tovey’s email address:  jim.tovey@mississauga.ca

Just a warning. City of Mississauga Staff lie. That’s not allegation —it’s fact.

So a simple email to Councillor Tovey detailing what you saw will not be enough. All City Staff have to do is deny and it’s your word against theirs and (I have this admission on audiotape…) in a You-Said/They-Said scenario, citizens lose 100% of the time.

Take it from someone who’s an expert at being on the receiving end of City of Mississauga Staff denies and lies, videotape —continuous raw videotape makes the best witness.

Again, Councillor Jim Tovey’s email address:  jim.tovey@mississauga.ca
