Today’s Blog and video is dedicated to Youth —especially those deemed “at-risk” by the institutions ostensibly there to serve them.
FACT: Today Mississauga Council rubber-stamped the Corporate Report Requests for Additional Information Security Incidents at City Facilities prepared by Jamie Hillis, Manager, Security and Operations and signed by Brenda R. Breault, Commissioner of Corporate Services in 12 seconds. Not a single question from either Mayor Hazel McCallion or any of the Councillors present.
FACT: Despite the McMurtry/Curling Report on the Roots of Youth Violence and the Peel Youth Charter hanging at all City facilities, the word “youth” is not mentioned once in the report.
Here is the video complete with transcript.
