This question is the MISSISSAUGAWATCH Sniff Test for all Ontario municipal Mayors and Councillors:

Do you support asking the Ontario government to extend the investigative authority of the Ontario Ombudsman to include municipalities?

If the answer is not an UNQUALIFIED "Yes!", ask "Why not?" and proceed with extreme caution.

Vandals damage golf course

Peel Regional Police are on the hunt for the vandals who broke into Mississauga’s BraeBen Golf Course last night and trashed the place.

Officers from the 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau received a call from golf course staff just after 6:30 a.m. today reporting the crime.

Peel Cst. Wayne Patterson said the intruders cut the locks to gain entry to the Terry Fox Way premises sometime overnight.

Nestled in the centre of Mississauga’s Heartltand community, BraeBen Golf Course was designed more than 30 years ago to be true to the Scottish Highlands. The course includes an 18-hole championship course and a nine-hole par-three teaching course as well as full banquet and dining facilities.

And ah, what the heck, might as well toss in my City of Mississauga BraeBen Golf Course video surveillance showing that at the time of the August 25, 2009 break-in Braeben’s video surveillance cams failed to comply to Privacy Guidelines.

Guess who had to force the City of MYTHissauga to finally be “compliant” at BraeBen?

UPDATE May 16, 2010 12:52 PM. It didn’t take long for YouTubers to comment. Check this beaut out:

So MISSISSAUGAWATCH responded with:

@thebigbender Uh, you wrote, “video survellance didnt fail there jus there for the real crime ya hurd”

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE VIEW THAT GRAFFITI ISN’T A CRIME!

UPDATE MAY 16, 2010 7:26 PM. This just in from Twitter. While I’m not sure I agree I thought it would be useful to share.
