    Hey Muse!

    Found you an interesting newswire article on FOI requests you might be interested in reading.

    Not sure if this is along the line of what you’re researching (it seems very similar in ways).

    HEY! Welcome back Commentguy! 2009 will be worse than 2008 so I won’t say Happy New Year.

    How are you doubleplus doing?

    And BOY you weren’t kidding about this being an interesting Freedom of Information article. (I typed out Freedom of Information instead of “FOI”  at first to help people who might be Googling for “Freedom of Information”. So I have to set that here before I use “FOI”).

    Canada’s Police among Worst Offenders for Freedom of Information Compliance   Audit Finds Huge Disparities in Access to Basic Information is an terriific resource that you aimed me at. Can’t thank you enough.

    “Huge Disparities in Access to Basic Information” zero surprise. I can confirm “Huge Disparities” in what I discovered just filing Freedom of Information here on the (non-police services) security practices of several Ontario municipalities.

    Zero surprise that Ontario rates D+ or lower with one exception.

    Hamilton (rated a C) is no surprise because it  has a highly active citizen-watchdog group called CATCH (Citizens AT City Hall) that I’m subscribed to. (Oh to have something like that here…)

    Ironically last Friday I filed an FOI with Peel Regional Police (PRP) on Mississauga Corporate Security (MissCorpSec )  I wasn’t gettin’ what I needed about MissCorpSec from Mississauga Freedom of Information. Quel surprise, huh…

    Got a call Thursday from the PRP FOI-guy (don’t you just love acronyms?)

    The Constable told me that he’d done an initial dig and found no records. I told him I was not surprised in the least. He then asked me for more information –what it is that I wanted/needed.

    So I let ‘er rip.

    Turned out that I was very lucky.  The Constable working this FOI used to work with Youth including those “at-risk”. And we talked story some more. I love what I heard out of him.  I have zero doubt that he will do his best because we both know that he’s not digging FOI for me.

    If he comes back with “no responsive records” I know it’ll be because there are no records and not because of “excessive secrecy”. I leave “excessive secrecy” to the MissCorpSec doubleplus ungood BB Muni-Tru recdep.

    Which reminds me. How’s your Newspeak comin’ along fellow prole?

    Love ya for this link, Commentguy! And a reminder, check out MissyNews new Blogger “The Happy Investigator” He’s so much like you at first I thought he was you under a different Net-name.

    P.S. Interesting mini-research project would be to take this article’s ratings and match them up with the powers of each provincial ombudsman. Question: Is there a correlation between A, B provinces with Ombudsman powers and the D provinces with absence of Ombudsman powers?

    We can see for example that with the exception of the City of Hamilton, Ontario SUCKED.

    Surely part of the reason is that our Ontario Ombudsman has ZERO investigative powers into the MUSH sector.

    hey hey again Missy Muse! I’m doubleplus good, but very doubleplus busy with work.

    I’m glad to hear that the link I sent you was useful. As soon as I saw that I was like “holy crap!” because I knew it would be something you’d want to see.

    I’m still reading my way through 1984 (for a second time now) making sure that I understand all the lingos and stuff..first time through was a bit of a challenge, but I think I’ll understand it better the second time around.

    Just a heads up – big navy blue empire up here is thinking on becoming big brother later this year with their installation of mini pelco devices on their MuniCityBram transportation units. Also, an interesting side note, MuniCityBram has the pelcos up and running at their transportaion unit terminals with no warnings of Big Brother watching you anywhere. You’d think that BrampCorpSec and MuniCityBram would have covered their MuniCityRumps with a sign or two advising Big Brother is watching. The only thing I could find was a sticker on the door about the size of a business card saying that BrampCorpSec is watching.

    Never confuse “want” with “need” friend.

    Now have I got a lnik for you! Our Toronto Star (who I haven’t been all that charitable about lately. In fact, I called it a “champion of small causes”)  just scored HUGE! I mean a triple slam for the home team!

    They won a victory by challenging Freedom of Information all the way to the Court of Appeal on the right to access the Toronto Police database! Here’s the irony. The article came out the same day I got back an FOI on the Mississauga Corporate Security database.

    It’s likely already too late to warn you. To people who don’t know about government, 1984 is just a scary book. To people who’ve actually met Big Brother like I have, (admittedly it’s not the BIG BROTHER who breaks knees and rib cages, but the potential is always there… ) 1984 becomes part of you.

    And yes, so does the vocabulary.

    I got a bigger heads up. I suspect as a cost-saving measure, those mini-Pelcos are the ones that engage only when there’s an incident. Like an collision (I’m ok with that) or driver-activated (HUGE problem).

    I know with Freedom of Information certainty the degree to which Mississauga Big Brother is “selective” about its use of video surveillance. If it doesn’t help his cause, he won’t use it. Or will use only part of the surveillance footage.

    Driver-activated surveillance cam opens the possibility to a driver being abusive to a passenger, even provoking and then activate the cam only when the passenger retaliates.  Passenger is doubleplus screwed in what looks to be unprovoked and driver looks like an angel.

    And you BET it will happen.

    Sure, put mini-Pelcos in the buses but they should be on the entire time. Screw the selective reporting. I’ve seen what happens with selective Employee reporting in Mississauga.

    Plus I’ve talked to a couple of Transit people and they say they prefer warm bodies (mobilel guards that they can call). People are delusional if they think a cam is going to help them when the shit hits the fan.

    Oversized hoodie, sunglasses, huge scarf and I mean seriously that’s what the cam would record.

    Yes, I know that BramCorpSec has video surveillance signs the size of a business card. But that’s still more warning than MissCorpSec ever gave people even as they were bragging about their Video Surveillance Policy and how compliant they were with it.

    By the way, I have Freedom of Information showing BramCorpSec’s original siz …hmmmm, let me get back to you because I might be confusing that with T.O.CorpSec.

    Freedom of Information reveals that BramCorpSec is still very new as an entity. Unlike MissCorpSec, BramCorpSec actually keeps minutes of meetings so I can safely assume that the BramCorpSec team actually meets.

    I’ve been wanthing to check out BramCorpSec bus terminals but been too tripleplus busy with the MissCorpSec and their Database_from_Helllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll. (I’d laugh except real people fall victims to the thing.)

    I got my Freedom of Information results back from Peel Regional Police about MissCorpSec and the Contstable phoned me today and said, “Now this is either good news or bad but we couldn’t find any records. Nothing.”

    And I said that was good.

    MissCorpSec and Peel Police are not “community partners” let me tell you. Unless breathing the same municipal air counts. As a SCUBA diver, I’m reminded of the diver-buddy joke.

    The kind of buddy system that isn’t and invites tragedy.  Same Day. Same Ocean.

    I can tell you this.

  5. Commentguy on January 16th, 2009 9:22 am

    Ok. Here’s the scoop on the transit terminals. If you want more info, let me know and I’ll see what I can find.

    All the terminals except Heart Lake have two pelco’s, and a large number of those silly dome cameras. Some even right next to each other. Not sure what the thinking was putting those up if the Pelco is twenty feet away, but whatever. That’s MuniCityBram thinking.

    The Guards at all the terminals,except Heart Lake, are Primary Response. These guys couldn’t catch a cold. It seems that they have put the most incapable people there to guard the terminals…so if you come for a visit, they’ll probl’y just watch you but not say anything. Most of the time they hang out in the bus driver’s breakroom watching television anyways. So youth are safe. The rather large guard at the City Centre hits up women for their cell phone numbers and dates. How professional eh?

    The only signs I found relating to cameras were of course, that business card sized warning. The only warning that cameras are in the area, is under the “Bram Cams” that say that the area is being monitored by webcam, which, interstingly, are being phased out.

    There were six cameras and they are now down to three, with one more disappearing every couple of months. There’s still on at Ching Park, watching the skaterkids though, which I’m sure is also monitored by the cops. The camera is directly pointed at the skatepark. Talk about being watched.

    As for the book – the second time around, it’s scaring me. This book should be required reading. It’s crazy when I read it, that I see literally, a mirror image of Big Yellow.

  6. Commentguy on January 16th, 2009 9:23 am

    Hey Muse (again!)

    Sorry for the second post – I thought I lost this one and it magically re-appeared… I meant to add this to the previous post …

    Downtown terminal – There’s two pelco’s and approximately 10 – 12 of the small minidome cameras mounted on the walls both inside and outside of the buildings. Pelco 1 is located on the west side of the terminal near the taxi stand – Pelco 2 on the east side by the GO bus stands. As far as I can tell, it just takes snapshots while rotating the camera lense every second to the next spot in rotation.

    As for the mini dome cameras on the walls and roofs, I can’t tell if those are active or not because there are so many of them. I wouldn’t put it past BramCorpSec to just put up dummy cameras, considering that in some locations there are two domes right next to each other.

    Heart Lake – No cameras as far as I can tell. No Pelco’s dangling or those mini domes.

    Shoppers World – Pelco City. Two Pelco’s covering an area smaller than Westwood Mall’s bus terminal. There are the mini domes too. Shoppers World is Brampton’s equivalent of Westwood Mall. Lots of youth and tonnes of problems (if you believe the city).

    Bramalea City Centre – 2 pelco’s and a bunch of mini domes scattered throughout the buuilding, but not platforms.

    Trinity Mall Bus Station – 2 pelco’s and a bunch of mini domes scattered throughout the building, but not the platforms.

    Hye again Commentguy, fellow Prole!

    EXCELLENT INFO, HOLY DOUBLEPLUS JUMPIN’! You’re gettin’ into this Big Brother video surveillance thing doubleplus bigtime.

    Just want to point out that City of Brampton Corporate Security keeps excellent records of each of their camera installations. By contrast, Freedom of Information shows that Mississauga Corporate Security Big Brother knobs kept “no responsive records”.

    Rmemeber, video surveillance is an irreplaceable enforcement tool.  I really believe that. The problem is when unaccountable KNOBS are in charge of them.

    It”s just past 1 pm here and I’ve got to get to Big Yellow to pick up some FOI results and then cover an even for the Peel Youth Violence Prevention Network. So I can only comment on one of your important points.

    You wrote:

    Thanks for that observation. Now imagine researching Big Yellow’s Big Brother through Freedom of Information so you actually READ the emails that Big Brother never expected would see the light of day.

    Perhaps you can understand why I say that reading the book isn’t enough by a long shot. It would appear that at the municipal level, I’m the only one of my kind of actually SEE/KNOW Mississauga Big Brother. Unless you know about the Real Big Brother World, Orwell’s 1984 still can’t drive it home no matter how often you read it.

    I’ve said all along that I’m living inside my own novel. I’m not writing —this all writes itself.

    And I despair because of something I already know.

    I’ve been sentenced to Life by Mississauga Big Brother. LIFE.

    Because of what I know, I have to always, for the rest of my life WATCH BIG BROTHER. Because the negligent Province of Ontario doesn’t care enough about the public and especially Youth to do something to help them.

    Sentenced to a LIFE of MISSISSAUGA BIG KNOB BROTHER!


    Later, fellow Crimethinker-Prole and treasure your Ownlife!

    Missy Muse, found out some more information. The transit cameras are going to be positioned with several per bus, so that the entire bus will be able to be monitored constantly. However, MuniCityBram is stating that only authorised people will have access to those images recorded.

    Intersting side note with the pelcos at the terminals – they can be monitored by BramCorpSec as well as Transit Control if need be. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Peelers had access to them too (which for that, I wouldn’t mind, they do an amazing excellent job keeping us all safe – The Peelers that is…)

    Did you see the latest on the MT Transit Squad? They kicked off an old lady with a dog from the bus, wearing, get this, RUBBER GLOVES! Shameful. I wonder if she’ll make it into the MissCorpSecNonDatabaseThatDoesntExistButReallyDoesButTheyCantFindAnythingInItForFOIRequestsWhereThePublicWantsThemHeldAccountable.

  9. The Mississauga Muse on January 17th, 2009 2:14 pm

    Hey Commentguy,

    I feel badly, fellow Prole. Here I finally have someone whose taken to Orwell’s 1984 and standing up to Big Brother to the degree that I have and I can’t give your comments the time they deserve (I have to turn my attention to Enersource to prepare for Thursday).

    You wrote:

    Be extremely careful with wording, friend “so that the entire bus will be able to be monitored constantly” is NOT THE SAME thing as those cams are recording constantly! The cheap route that municipalities take are cams that record only 40 secondswhen triggered by an incident! 20 seconds prior and 20 after.

    That kicks open the door to abuse (a bus driver could sucker in a rider he wants banned. Easily.)

    You wrote:

    And I believe them because the $1,000 worth of Freedom of Information that I’ve gotten about BrampCorpSec allows me to give them benefit of the doubt. However, I invite you to write MissCorpSec and MissCorpSec Big Brother will tell you the same thing, “only authorised people will have access to those images recorded.”

    Another $1,000 worth of Freedom of Information results from the MissCorpSec Big Brother and Commentguy not only have I ZERO confidence in that assertion, MissCorpSec is the Poster Child for why muncipalities shouldn’t be trusted with Security (guards, cameras and all other accoutrements) at all. Security should be the exclusive supervisory domain of Police!

    Commentguy you wrote:

    Yes, I know. The Pelco-feeds go into the Terminals proper but also to a central CCTV control room likely right inside your Brampton City Hall.  Where Security is handled ethically, I’d find live monitoring like that reassuring.

    And no, our Peelers don’t have access to municipal live CCTV Pelco-feeds, trust me on this.  In addition, the Freedom of Information I got back just this week that I filed with Peel Regional Police suggests our Peelers are left in the dark about the conduct/operations of their municipal “community partners”.

    No way do live-feeds to go some Peeler CCTV base. However should there be an incident, yes, our Peelers would be given access to the security footage. And a good tihng. Video surveillance is an invaluable tool for law enforcement —irreplaceable.

    Yes, also agree with our Peelers “amazing excellent job keeping us all safe”. I can only imagine the kind of job they’d do if they weren’t hobbled by their Municipal “community partner” KNOBS.

    The relationship between our Peelers and MIssCorpSec is the same as SDUBA divers who think dive buddies can be so out-of-sight of each other that “Same Day. Same Ocean” is a viable divng strategy.

    The exchange of information between MissCorpSec (and likely BramCorpSec) and our Peelers is “Same Day. Same Ocean” or “Same Municipality. Same Air”. I’m  convinced the secretiveness and shadowiness of certainly MissCorpSec makes the job of our Peelers much more difficult. Can’t say about BramCorpSec because to be honest, I just can’t afford more FOI search/severance fees over there.

    Yes, I did, Commentguy. And I went in there to defend the Mississauga Transit Enforcement team but then saw this last part and went total ape****.

    “I’m not one to provoke a confrontation,” she said. “But I really felt I had to stand up for myself.” 
    Marinoff said the complaint will be dealt with.
    “Once we get everybody’s story, if we think somebody did something inappropriate, we will take corrective action,” he said.

    That’s the Mississauga Complaints Procedure talkin’ and I just took that “improved” MissCorpSec ClusterCRAP Complaints procedure for a test drive and those were the exact words I got fed too.

    The Public needs to know that: “appropriate” “inappropriate” means FOR THE INTERESTS OF THE CORPORATION and not the Public.

    “appropriate” “inappropriate” are Mississauga code words.

    You’ve read 1984 twice now, so you understand Big Brother “code words” like MiniTrue or Ministry of Truth which was really Big Brother’s propaganda department.

    “appropriate” “inappropriate” are tossed out there for the Public to project that an “appropriate” investigation will be conducted and that something “inappropriate” be discovered Miississauga will take the “appropriate” steps.

    Nothing can be doubleplus further from the Truth.

    Every. Single. Thing. Mississauga. Does. Is. Examined, Through. The. Lens. of.  WHAT. IS. BEST. FOR. THE. CORPORATION.

    And that is how “appropriate” “inappropriate” is also defined.

    Time for me to repeat that I respect those Missy Enfs. You try dealing with a crabby public and then try dealing with a crabby public freezing their asses off with the bus 10 minutes late when they’ve already been waiting 30.

    It’s so easy for the Public to accuse. I really want to late-night shadow with those Missy Enfs in the “302” car but I know the evil empire wouldn’t let me.

    But they’re managed and supervised by Unaccountables who have demonstated as only they know how that they can’t be trusted with Security operations because they operate exclusively as “CORPORATION UBER ALLES” and couldn’t care less about fairness to the Public and especially Youth (and yes, confirmed through Freedom of Information). And those above whose job it is to look in on them don’t either (or approve of what is done/not done —which would even be worse than not looking in).

    Peel Regional Police has to take charge of those Missy Enfs! Fact is, at this point, I see it as a kind of Police “rescue”. I’m convinced the Enfs are worthy of being tucked under the umbrella of Police Services.

    BTW: Was driving and saw two elderly women waiting for a bus. The elder’s face was a red as her flimsy mittens. Last winter freeze I drove by two seniors waiting for a bus. This time I stopped and offered them a ride to wherever they wanted to go. Took them to Metro at Meadowvale Town Center.

    The 87 year old said she’d been waiting for 15 minutes and her chin was already freezing. The 70-plus year old who’d joined her in the wait absolutely had to go shopping as well. Both said Saturday buses run 40 minutes in between.

    The 87-year old had been a Streetsville resident since ’51.

    If I were the Mississauga bus driver and saw the dog, I’d have made sure I wouldn’t “see” the dog. You know the expression, “I wouldn’t send a dog out on a night like this?”

    As for your uber-off-the-page-lengthy:

    I wonder if she’ll make it into the MissCorpSecNonDatabaseThatDoesntExistButReallyDoesButTheyCantFindAnythingInItForFOIRequestsWhereThePublicWantsThemHeldAccountable.

    Cracked me up. Tsk tsk. Such acidic wit. They must LOVE you in Brampton.

    Believe this, friend. You won’t HAVE to “wonder”. Because I know nothing will be done about MissCorpSec that means I am condemned to a Life Sentence with MissCorpSec Big Brother.

    Just believe that I feel two new FOI’s comin’ up on the  (love it!) MissCorpSecNonDatabaseThatDoesntExistButReallyDoesButTheyCantFindAnythingInItForFOIRequestsWhereThePublicWantsThemHeldAccountable MissCorpSec database!

    Hey Muse… I know you’re busy, so I don’t expect replies right away :) I tend to check every three days or so for a reply.

    As for Brampton LOVING me… well lets just say it’s a love-hate relationship. They love to hate me. I’m not exactly welcome at City Hall with all the questions I ask. They don’t need to tell me. I can just tell in their responses that they wish I’d just leave them alone when I question things. Someone has to ask the questions that need answers.

    I’m honoured, btw, that you are adding my lengthy verbiage to the MississaugaWatch Database! :)

    Ok. I think I have been learning something. Tell me if this makes sense or if I used the words in a doubleplusbadway:

    Hey Commentguy! Fellow Prole, great to hear from you again!

    GREAT COMMENTS, Dude!

    You wrote:

    Actually, I’ve a video online, Donald Barber’s December 2007 deputation in front of Mississauga Council. It was his call for “a broad disclosure of the conduct and operations of Mississauga Corporate Security.

    re: not exactly welcome at City Hall… Quote:

    “There are prople in MIssissauga who indeed fear, not only expressing their feelings but even entering City Hall.”

    Every time I step into Big Yellow (audio recorder going the whole time and all, I feel like Frodo entering Mordor.

    And WOW, I hit Barber’s second statement and more than a year’s (and hundreds of dollars worth of Freedom of Information) confirm just how right Barber was when he then said:

    “City Securty lacks adequate record-keeping to ensure quality and accountability  to Mississauga’s taxpayers.”

    Wow again… neither he or I knew when he said that, the degree to which MissCorpSec “lacks adequate record-keeping to ensure quality and accountability  to Mississauga’s taxpayers.”

    I watch Barber now, what with all my Freedom of Information MissCorpSec database results, and realize just how he/we had UNDER-stated the problems back then! Of course that’s because back then I’d only had nine months of Freedom of Information results and didn’t have a clue about how to word my queries properly.

    This is all my way of saying that Brampton City Hall has nothing on MIssiissauga City Hall when it comes to prodigious turds bobbing to the surface.

    How do I know?

    Through Freedom of Information, I secured the records of all bans, trespass, arrests issued by City of Brampton and City of Mississauga for comparative purposes. I can tell you this. Here’s what I’d love to do because Freedom of Information has confirmed that I’d be justified.

    Go to each City of Mississauga community centre/facility, and RIP DOWN the Peel Youth Charter hanging there. And I’d frikkin’ start with the Peel Youth Charter at the Malton Community Centre!

    Then I’d take all of them down to Big Yellow’s Civic Square on July 1, 2009 and BURN THE LOT! BURN EVERY City of Mississauga Peel Youth Charter. I can’t think of a more (there’s that word again) appropriate way to celebrate Canada Day.

    Here’s what MIssCorpSec is in violation of in the Peel Youth Charter (identified in bold RED):

    We believe that young people are valuable members of the Region of Peel. Young people bring a unique, diverse set of ideas, perspectives and skills, and make a valuable and significant contribution to our community. They deserve the same respect, dignity and human rights as all members of the community.

    We believe all Peel youth have the right to:

    Safe and supportive environments at home, in school, in workplaces and throughout the community.

    Be served by governments which acknowledge their responsibility to improve the safety of young people, and to work cooperatively with the community to ensure adequate and equitable funding for youth violence prevention programs.

    Have access to relevant, youth-centric health supports that help build a foundation of respect for healthy personal choices throughout the lifespan.

    The best efforts by the community-at-large in creating career employment opportunities for young people.

    The availability of recreational and leisure activities in the form of play, creative expression or skill development opportunities.

    Access to a region-wide network of information and resources to support youth.

    Be supported and encouraged to be active citizens regarding issues that concern them.

    Be involved in policy, program and service development an issues that affect young people.

    Advocate, or to be advocated for on their behalf, on issues that affect young people.

    These rights will apply without discrimination or prejudice to all youth in Peel.

    Yeah, tons of red. That’s the difference between CoM Munitrue prolefeed feeds the Public —and what Freedom of Information reveals about What Actually Is.

    Talk about an Orwellian Dystopic Fantasy, huh, fellow Prole…

    I can just tell in their responses that they wish I’d just leave them alone when I question things. Someone has to ask the questions that need answers.

    Yes, and municipal security guards refer to them/us as “shit disturbers” who are “stirring the pot”. How do I know?  Online security guard “conversations”.

    As if shit disturbing a bad thing. (I know! Let’s pretend that it’s in the best interest of Democracy to let City Hall shit PILE, PILE, PILE UP!)

    As for “stirring the pot“, that security guard comment telegraphs how City Hall Prole truly feels about legitimate public input.

    I’ve been forced to the conclusion that many a municipal security guard is a closet-fascist.   I’ve developed one remarkable theory about what type of individual makes the “best” in-house security guard for a corrupt Ontario municipality. I say “remarkable” because of just how doubleplus Orwellian Muni-BB turns out to be.

    And trust me on this, Commentguy, BramCorpSec BB ain’t got nothin’ compared to MissCorpSec BB.  (Just this week I got the (incomplete) Mississauga Civic Centre bans/trespass/arrests records. I say “incomplete” because not all bans and arrests make it into the MIssCorpSec database. For example, Donald Barber’s June 7, 2006 arrest isn’t there!

    I tell you, I’ve  got a fairly decent imagination but no way, could I ever make up a story or novel set in Ontario, Canada this twisted that I’m curre… we’re currently experiencing.

    I’m honoured, btw, that you are adding my lengthy verbiage to the MississaugaWatch Database!

    “lengthy”?! The sucker is so long it breaches the Blog boundaries, bleeds right off the page and destroys my husband’s MISSISSAUGAWATCH formatting! KUDOS! That’s why I was impressed with it!

    I mean look at it! It’s a thing of beauty!

    Back to you:

    Ok. I think I have been learning something. Tell me if this makes sense or if I used the words in a doubleplusbadway:

    MissMuse beware of the joycamp of MuniMiss whose sole purpose in the recdep is to create ficdip and malreport.

    As a result of my investigation into Donald Barber’s arrest (the unannounced change during the 2006 Municipal Election year, in Public Question Period  to limit questions to items on the agenda was politically-motivated and primarily targeted Mr. Barber) Don and I’ve become friends.

    However, you reading 1984 twice now, you already writing that well in Newspeak signals to me that you’re the only person who bellyfeel understands what citizens face when they try stand up to their Ontario municipal evil empires and above all, their Ontario municipal evil empire Big Brother

    BramCmtguy, Correct. FOI cnfrm MissCorpSec (MCS) recdep malreport. + MissCorpSec recdep nonreport & FICreport. FOI cnfirm MissCorpSec nonrep/noncnsult PRP. Peel-CorpSec-doubleplus ungood esp: for Youth.

    Third cup of coffee down… I’m all woked up… now to review my *groan* hours of videotape on Mississauga Council talking about *doubleplus-groan* Enersource.


    Keep on keepin’ on on behalf of our Peel Fellow Proles!
