VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

MISSISSAUGAWATCH (Mississauga Council Public Question Period, May 28, 2007):

The reason why I felt my question was important is that I was at Monday’s Audit Committee and the three Councillors who were there in 2006, because I sat in on the last two, were wiped clean. Councillor Iannicca wasn’t on it. I believe Councillors Corbasson and Mullin weren’t on it.

And when I back over the minutes —five years worth of minutes of the Audit Committee, there was a sort of a clean slate of individuals year after year after year. Including Monday brand new people at the councillor-level.

And I want to say that it’s also important to have continuity on the Audit Committee for the Corporation of the City of Mississauga.

That’s all I want to say. So thank you.

MISSISSAUGA MAYOR, HAZEL MCCALLION (Mississauga Council Public Question Period, May 28, 2007):

Thank you. I would like to address that.

Continuity is one thing, yes. The point is the process we use for appointments of Councillors to the Audit Committee is to make sure that all members of Council have the privilege of sitting on the Audit Committee and learning from the process.

That’s the reason for it.

MISSISSAUGA COUNCILLOR, PAT SAITO, CHAIR AUDIT COMMITTEE (Audit Committee November 26, 2007):

“It’s been a few years I guess. Is it every few years we’re on the Audit Committee? Pretty well. Pretty well, See then you start to tend to forget what was in the reports that you’re actually working on.”
