Mayor Hazel McCallion, “The allegations you made to me are either True or Untrue” –and a Thank You

May 13th, 2014  

This correspondence was originally sent to Mayor Hazel McCallion by email, March 17, 2014 at 8:30. It was cc’d to Crystal Greer City Clerk, Janice Baker City Manager, Gary Kent Commissioner of Corporate Services, Raj Sheth Director of Facilities and Property Management, Jason.Keddy Manager City of Mississauga Corporate Security, and Councillors Jim Tovey, Pat Mullin, Chris Fonseca, Frank Dale, Ron Starr, Nando Iannicca, Katie Mahoney, Pat Saito, Sue McFadden and George Carlson.

The complaint below in FACTUM 140317 01 against a City of Mississauga Corporate Security guard, has been used with permission and has been redacted to ensure the author’s anonymity.


 

Dear Madam Mayor,

First, hope you are well.

I already had a feeling about something positive a month ago –February 18th to be exact but I waited until today, March 17, 2014 to write and thank you.

I’ve been researching City of Mississauga municipal governance since May 2006 and I have to say that out of every single day, March 17, 2008 stands as the most important.

As it happened I attended an Audit Committee meeting that day. You, Councillors Dale, Adams and Mahoney were all in attendance.

A matter to be considered was “Proposed Corporate Policy: “Code of Conduct and Complaint Procedure for Security Staff” and part of the minutes read:

“Jamie Hillis, Manager, Security and Operations advised that the process for hiring security officers is stringent and imposes high standards. He described the cross-training provided in all positions and explained that the Training Officer is responsible for identifying training needs, including external training, i.e. police drills and report writing. Mayor McCallion stated that people hired as security officers should be sensitive to the public.”

That’s not a bad summary of the minutes, all things considered: however, Freedom of Information has drawn into question Jamie Hilllis’ claims regarding both the stringency and high standards for City of Mississauga Corporate Security (MissCorpSec) guard hiring.

For example, aside from one course with Peel Police attended by some guards, Freedom of Information could find no other evidence of “external training”.

As for MissCorpSec’s training officer being responsible for “identifying training needs” and report writing, this is the individual I’ve identified as having to share significant blame not just for the City of Mississauga Corporate Security Excel database (especially the Ethnicity field) but also for the written content entered into MissCorpSec’s Special Occurrence Reports (SORs).

But I did say that I was writing to thank you. The minutes correctly record that “Mayor McCallion stated that people hired as security officers should be sensitive to the public.”

Today marks the 7th Anniversary of you saying what I feel is the most important thing you ever said. And for that I thank you!

More specifically, video of that March 17, 2008 Audit Committee meeting shows that you turn to MissCorpSec Manager Jamie Hillis and say, “I hope that the people we hire are sensitive to the fact that we are dealing with the public and we should give them every understanding possible”.

To which Mr. Hillis responded, “Yes. Absolutely.”

Well, between me and the MissCorpSec database there was virtually no evidence of “Yes. Absolutely”.

Then to my surprise on February 18, 2014, I received an email from Raj Sheth, Director of Facilities and Property Management introducing Jason Keddy, MissCorpSec’s new Manager effective February 10, 2014.

Since the name was unfamiliar to me I knew immediately that you listened to me begging for you not to hire a new Security Manager from within. So thank you for that too!

Next. It should be no surprise that I Googled “Jason Keddy” thoroughly. I discovered that among other things he was Security Director at York University when Roy McMurtry (co-author “Roots of Youth Violence”) was appointed York’s 12th Chancellor in March 2008. I took that as a good omen.

I know it’s early but there’s a strong indication that you really did manage to deliver a Security Manager who is “sensitive to the fact that we are dealing with the public and we should give them every understanding possible”.

If Mr. Keddy is as real a deal as I hope, he will no more tolerate a goon in his Security ranks any more than I would.  Time will tell…

Last, I’m going to include an email I received just to explain the degree to which City of Mississauga Corporate Security has negatively affected people’s lives. I include it for those Councillors like Maja Prentice who believe that kids today have no problems complaining to their parents about their rights or how they’ve been treated…

FACTUM 140317 01 begins
Received via email December 14, 20…. 3:08 PM

Hello,

Today I feel compelled to email you about a family member’s personal experience in relation to a situation that has only very recently come to my attention.  And, upon performing some very rudimentary research on the subject, it didn’t take me long to find some disturbing and maddening information on the internet regarding what appears to be systemic corruption in what I thought was a first-world city, not a third-world country.  Please allow me to relay what I have learned:

My …… lived in Mississauga for … years to attend school. …… lived …………………… ……………………………… …… was a top-notch student (all instructors and school administration would easily vouch for that), and is a conscientious and law-abiding young adult.  …… no longer lives in the city, and has no desire to ever go back …………………… but, this morning (a full year after …… situation arose) …… approached me in tears because of an issue that has been bothering ……  the entire time, and which …… has only brought to my attention now.  …… would often go to …………… after spending several hours on …… schoolwork.  It was during one of these times when …… was approached by a belligerent man claiming to be a security person for the city.  ………………………… ………………… ……, when ……………  ……  was MORTIFIED.  …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… He demanded …… identification, and being completely naïve and terrified, …… obliged by giving it to him.  He told …………… was barred from …… …… for 30 days – with no evidence of any wrongdoing whatsoever!!!  The very, very unfortunate thing was that I happened to be in Mississauga visiting …… at that exact time, and had …… told me what had just happened to ……,  I would have ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… But, again, …… was terrified of what had just transpired, and was deathly afraid to mention it to anyone.

After seeing that many, many other people have been treated in the same way (by researching anecdotes on the internet, as well as coming upon your website), I regret very much that …… did not tell me immediately about this situation.  I would have been in City Hall in no time flat, lodging a formal complaint, but I believe it is futile at this time to bother.  …………, as I said, is extremely conscientious about being a model citizen, and it has been bothering …… for an entire year that …… reputation as such has been unjustly sullied.  …… also is worried that it will leave a permanent record somewhere for ……  Because …… lodged no complaint against the false accusation, I am hoping that this will not be the case.  I believe it would be futile, or even counterproductive, at this time to complain to the city administration over this as, at this point, I would not doubt that they would doctor the documents to lie even further about whatever this individual documented, just to be spiteful.  This is why I consider Mississauga city administration to be no better than some third-world corrupt establishment, when it doesn’t take rocket science to see that there is a problem with what’s going on on their city property by their employees or contracted services.

I don’t know if your “Mississauga Watch” still exists, or if you are still observing this situation there but, as I said, I felt compelled to convey my …… experience with what I believe to be a serious issue of abuse of authority.  My view of the city had degraded during the time my …… spent there as it was, but this has sealed my disgust with …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… evidence existed to support such an accusation, by third-world wanna-be cops. ………………………

FACTUM 110427: Exchange between Mayor Hazel McCallion and MISSISSAUGAWATCH during April 27, 2011 General Committee meeting. MISSISSAUGAWATCH: white. McCallion: aqua.

Mayor Hazel McCallion to MISSISSAUGAWATCH "the allegations you made to me are either True or Untrue" --April 27, 2011

FACTUM 070507: April 16, 2007 email from Mayor Hazel McCallion states emphatically, “it is because the City does not discriminate on the basis of age and ethnicity that there are no records to be found based on those categories. During Emergency Preparedness Week May 2007, MISSISSAUGAWATCH gets first easy access to City of Mississauga Corporate Security vehicles and displays.

Out of curiosity, we went to the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database secured in 2012 to examine the bans/arrests, City guards issued during Emergency Preparedness Week May 2007. The results? Total 6 bans. 5 non-white —4 of which we black. One “black ban” from all facilities was issued for 10 years by a security guard too stupid to spell “harassment” and too lazy to look it up in a dictionary just to be sure. Imagine. A 10-year ban from all facilities, with no legitimate public complaints system to appeal that ban —and you still get to pay taxes…

Emergency Preparedness Week 2007: City of Mississauga's Ethnicity/Age ban stats that week...

FACTUM 051226: City of Mississauga Corporate Security guard “HyJynx” bragged online about physically abusing “a client” along with two other security guards. So not only did City of Mississauga Security bosses lie about keeping race/ethnicity records, they dismissed the MISSISSAUGAWATCH complaint about “HyJynx” as unverifiable. Freedom of Information however, did manage to locate another abusive incident “HyJynx” bragged about and dredged up security guard name, Mike Keter.

Emergency Preparedness Week May 2007. No wonder City of Mississauga Corporate Security guards weren't happy with their first-ever scrutiny!

Signed,

MISSISSAUGAWATCH

HAZEL MCCALLION QUOTE ON STAFF NON-COMPLIANCE TO POLICIES (AUDIT COMMITTEE 090511) "There seems to be a complete disregard for policy."

City of Mississauga Security scuttles Hazel McCallion’s reputation for “running a tight ship” [Freedom of Information]

February 15th, 2014  

Yesterday was February 14, 2014, Hazel McCallion’s 93rd birthday. As expected the Mississauga News is full-flow-gushing this annual event.

Today we’re going back in the day, February 14, 2007 when Rogers Cable 10 telecast a fascinating and so ironic Mississauga Council debate. The Mayor and Councillors were falling all over themselves because of an error made by City Staff in a by-law that potentially caused “hardship” to people. As we know, in Mississauga, “hardship” means Money Matters.

But we challenge you to view this video through a different lens. Imagine if back on February 14, 2007 Mississauga Council took our complaints about City of Mississauga Corporate Security as seriously as Money Matters. Imagine then, instead, that they were talking about “expeditiously” dealing with the lies and denies of their own Security operation. Seven years ago… What a difference that would have made!

So here’s our Mississauga Council Valentine’s Day 2007 dedicated to ALL those at the City who not only did Nothing, but actively engaged in fabrication and cover up. (Complete with video transcript.)

Dedicated to City of Mississauga Corporate Security bosses Ken Owen, Jamie Hillis, Cathie Evans and Joe Cairney.

City of Mississauga Security scuttles Hazel McCallion’s reputation for “running a tight ship”

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

Mayor Hazel McCallion, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

My advice to Staff, and I’m going to give some advice –that reports need to be more complete.  And I think we should be aware of discussions that take place on a very important change in the by-law.

It’s not just changing a simple policy, folks. It’s changing a by-law.

Yes. We made a mistake. And obviously we all admit we didn’t do our homework. On it. So I think we should learn from our experiences.

Paul Mitcham, Commissioner of Community Services, February 14, 2007

Madam Mayor? Madam Mayor, if I might as well request if there are any individual situations where there is hardship, that they be brought to my attention—

Mayor Hazel McCallion, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

Very good.

Paul Mitcham, Commissioner of Community Services, February 14, 2007

—and I will address them.

Mayor Hazel McCallion, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

You will.

Paul Mitcham, Commissioner of Community Services, February 14, 2007

Ah, secondly, we w-I would appreciate really an opportunity to talk to Staff before we commit to a timeline. But then we will certainly expedite it at your request.

Mayor Hazel McCallion, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

Thank you.

[Dip to White]

Councillor Pat Mullin, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

There’s nothing underhanded about this.

Mayor Hazel McCallion, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

No.

Councillor Pat Mullin, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

This is simply—

Mayor Hazel McCallion, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

I didn’t say that.

Councillor Pat Mullin, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

—something that in my view we did not look at carefully. And people are being hit.

It’s important as Councillor Carlson says, is to do the right thing as quickly as possible. So I ask—

Mayor Hazel McCallion, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

And we will do the right thing.

Councillor Pat Mullin, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

—and I would ask, I would ask that there would not be a delay in this. That this would come forward as quickly as possible.

[Dip to White]

Mayor Hazel McCallion, Mississauga Council, February 14, 2007

We will deal with it expeditiously. And we will make sure that nobody is harmed by it. That, Paul Mitcham, the Commissioner, has assured us. And we will have it back as —uh.

It’s unfortunate it got by us. And we apologize for it. There is nothing underhanded about it. But I really believe that the Council has made the right decision by deferring it for more debate, more understanding.

I think it’s important that the eleven members around this Council understand the implications of any actions we take. And so that is extremely important.

Councillor Parrish….

Contract Security: City of Mississauga Security “CSIS” database reveals disturbing Failure-to-Mention in Corporate Reports

January 9th, 2014  

Our last blog was December 25th, 2013 which included a December 29, 2013 update. It’s now January 9, 2014… Only three blogs in December, none in November, just one in October.

And yet we are so busy! We continue to analyze the City of Mississauga Corporate Security “CSIS” database and I for one, am finally comfortable enough using Excel to be confident navigating it. What this means is I am now taking over 150 “tags” (Notice Prohibiting Entry) that I secured from the City of Brampton back in 2008 and transferring them into a modified version of the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database. It’s as close to comparing Security-apples with Security-apples as I’m ever going to get.

The thing is this transfer from paper to electronic spreadsheet takes time. And before I even begin any analysis I have to check, double and triple-check to ensure that each entry is correct first.

But the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database has revealed something so troubling that I can’t in good conscience sit on this information until I’m ready. “Ready” defined as all the Freedom of Information that I have yet to file is returned and examined as part of the data. This has to go up now.

I’ve already mentioned the April 16, 2007 email that I received from Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion denying that City of Mississauga Corporate Security (MissCorpSec) keep records on Age and Ethnicity.

She wrote:

“Contrary to your allegations, it is because the City does not discriminate on the basis of age and ethnicity that there are no records to be found based on such categories.”

Confirmed now as a lie, possibly out of ignorance.

In a March 19, 2007 email the Mayor also insisted that the City treats all residents fairly. Here are her exact words:

“You have made references to two quotations in the Canadian Security Magazine article, alleging concerns that you have with respect to the new Canadians and the number of security incidents last year.  I cannot see anything that substantiates your concerns.  In any event, please be advised that the City treats all its residents fairly regardless of language or ethnicity.”

And so I present the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database —this time severed to include only those incidents involving bans issued by “Contract Security”. Contract Security would be private security guards hired by City of Mississauga Corporate Security on contract.

City of Mississauga Corporate Security's "Contract Security" record of bans and arrests. Why did Hillis-Evans Corporate Reports make no mention of ethnicity or private security?
Original size can be found here:   www.flickr.com/photos/43172810@N00/11820600953/sizes/o

City of Mississauga Corporate Security bosses Jamie Hillis and Cathie Evans provided several Corporate Reports to Mississauga Council regarding incidents at City facilities (bans, arrests etc). As I’ve said since early 2008, it’s what City of Mississauga (and Corporate Security) fail to mention that the public needs to know the most. In their Corporate Reports, there was never any mention of ethnicity. Of the degree to which security guards (and even City bosses themselves) fail to record vital information into the Security database. Of the baffling “Complexion” categories and even more bizarre “Age Ranges”…

Both Hillis and Evans failed to mention MissCorpSec’s “Contract Security” records. And also failed to mention:

The next step is compare these data with City of Brampton Primary Response Contract Security…

That’s it, except I’ll leave you with this:

“With respect to your first question, ultimately I am responsible for the design and evaluation of the database.”

“CSIS” database confirms City of Mississauga Corporate Security’s Reign of Error after Error after Error after Error after Error after

December 16th, 2013  

It’s been a long time since I wrote a blog. Wow, last one was December 2, 2013. Right now I’m heavily into analyzing the City of Mississauga Corporate Security (MissCorpSec) database and in the process I have to learn Excel. The database is a record of 5,381 incidents of bans and arrests courtesy of City of Mississauga Corporate Security guards, Contract Security guards, City of Mississauga Corporate Security Area Managers (SAMs) as well as those issued by Security Manager, Jamie Hillis.

In an email, Ken Owen, Director of MissCorpSec once referred to the database as “non-robust”. Such classic MYTHissaugaspeak from that individual! “Non-robust”…

Tell you what. YOU decide about “non-robust”. Take a peek at the City of Mississauga Corporate Security “CSIS” database (below). But first, some background.

As a way of familiarizing myself with the MissCorpSec database, I began a colour-coding exercise: Red for failure to record key information like “Complexion” (aka Race/Ethnicity) or omitting two related pieces of information like Date of Birth and AgeRangeID so the person receiving the ban could be an 8 year old —or 88.

8 or 88… Think that’s preposterous? Well City of Mississauga Corporate Security has banned someone as young as 8 and as old at 89!

The difficulty for me is figuring out how to analyze what Director Ken Owen calls a “non-robust” database and what I call a total piece of disgrace-to-public-service-piece-of-shit.

By our count over 1,700 of 5,381 Security incidents contained either errors or omissions. That’s over 30% of all entries for the “Trust Quality Excellence” “Best City in Canada” whose Mayor brags that they “Lead Canada in management”.

Sometimes while the Date of Birth is missing, at least City of Mississauga Security guards entered the AgeRangeID. The problem was there were numerous circumstances where 15 year olds were assigned the 16 – 20 AgeRange. Or a 16 year old was assigned 11 – 15. Or 26 – 30. You get the idea.

So even when the Date of Birth was missing, you could draw little confidence from a MissCorpSec guard filling in the AgeRange. And it isn’t just that. With Date of Birth missing what use is the AgeRange 16 – 20? Was that person a minor or a 19 – 20 year old?

Seriously. How do you go about analyzing such a piece of crap? How could anyone be confident in drawing any conclusions from it? Have Hazel McCallion and her Councillors been lying to us since at least May 2006—or just not paying attention? You can’t look at the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database and believe City of Mississauga Staff are accountable. If the Mayor and Council even remotely expected some oversight and consequences from senior Staff, we would not be wading through the shitterie that is their “CSIS” database.

We will be responding to all Corporate Reports authored by Security Manager Jamie Hillis and Security Area Manager, Cathie Evans from Spring 2010 to current. In these semi-annual reports they summarized bans, arrests and even “trends” of this database…

Imagine. Hillis and Evans provided no caveats about the “non-robust”ness of this database. (Most telling) not one word about “Complexion”!…

I will say this. When I warned Hazel McCallion and Councillors about City of Mississauga Corporate Security —about the lying, about the chronic disregard for Policy, about behaviour that confirmed Security bosses saw themselves as untouchable to any accountability, a rogue force and Law Unto Themselves— the City of Mississauga Corporate Security database still took me by surprise at just how bad it really was….

So here in its Full-Callous-Disregard-for-Policy are the over 1,700 incidents containing errors, omissions or just stinks of plain stupid.

Letters to Hazel McCallion: “Urging that the City of Mississauga MUST NOT fill their Manager, Security position internally. ”

This document was sent to Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion on November 24, 2013 and a corrected version was emailed today. We provide it here for the record.

City of Mississauga Corporate Security LETTERS TO HAZEL MCCALLION logo

Hi Madam Mayor,

I hope that you are well.

Please forgive my haste and know that the supporting evidence (Freedom of Information and audio/video) can be prepared and brought forth in good time, but right now it is more important to bring this urgent request to your attention before a decision is made.

On November 12, 2013, as a result of receiving an email advising me that the City could not reveal the name of a City of Mississauga Corporate Security (MissCorpSec) Area Manager, I went to your website at mississauga.ca to see if I could find a name that way.

As is my practice I checked your Jobs and Careers page.

Imagine my SHOCK finding the job, “Manager, Security” posted the very same day!

“I hope that the people we hire are sensitive to the fact that we are dealing with the public and we should give them every understanding possible.”

Madam Mayor, you, Council, and the City Manager, MUST NOT fill the Manager, Security position internally.

I remind you of an instruction you gave to Staff (and especially Jamie Hillis) at the March 17, 2008 Audit Committee meeting. Recall that you were reviewing the first-ever Security public complaints procedure and you said how important this document was.

And then, you pointedly told all there, “I hope that the people we hire are sensitive to the fact that we are dealing with the public and we should give them every understanding possible.”

To which Jamie Hillis responded, “Yes. Absolutely.”  It takes the most cursory of looks at City of Mississauga Corporate Security’s “CSIS” database to confirm that “Yes. Absolutely.” was a lie.

Hazel McCallion quote: “I hope that the people we hire are sensitive to the fact that we are dealing with the public and we should give them every understanding possible.” --Mayor Hazel McCallion at the March 17, 2008 Audit Committee
Another lie was that the City does not collect records on Ethnicity.

Your April 16, 2007 email to me states:

“Contrary to your allegations, it is because the City does not discriminate on the basis of age and ethnicity that there are no records to be found based on such categories.”
I know you didn’t write that Madam Mayor, but someone on Staff turned you into a liar. That’s why I wanted a name. I still want the name of the individual who made that statement. It’s a blatant lie — a lie that extends all the way back to at least January 2006. Corporate Security collected a lot more personal information on citizens than just Age and Ethnicity.

And ready for this? Remember that 9/10 year old girl that Security banned for 30 days from three facilities at once? Turns out she wasn’t the youngest! The MissCorpSec “CSIS” database confirms they banned an 8 year old boy for 30 days as well.

So much for the Peel Youth Charter…

I’m asking that you, Madam Mayor, personally oversee the hiring of the new Manager of City of Mississauga Corporate Security. There is not enough time right now to explain why all MissCorpSec’s SAMs (Security Area Managers) need to be replaced, and for that matter, Supervisors as well.

One step at a time, and the very best thing you can do for youth/citizens is to poach a new Security Manager who is “sensitive to the fact that we are dealing with the public” and “will give them every understanding possible.”

This implies that the candidate would have a high standard of ethics and would be willing, and ideally eager, to submit to the Province’s public complaints procedure under Bill 159.

Ministry of Community Safety Correctional Services Private Security Investigative Public Complaints
In his book “Her Worship: Hazel McCallion and the Development of Mississauga”, author Tom Urbaniak implied that when you go fishing, Madam Mayor, it isn’t just for salmon. You’ve been known to “poach” for City Staff.

On page 4 in his book, Urbaniak states that you have “spared few efforts to recruit seasoned top bureaucrats, sometimes even poaching respected senior provincial public servants.”

Madam Mayor, I urge you to poach and ensure we get a new Security Manager “who is sensitive to the fact that he is dealing with the public and should give them every understanding possible”.

I’ve been documenting City of Toronto Corporate Security during Toronto Council meetings (November 13 and 18, 2013). That might be a good place to start…

Respectfully,
MISSISSAUGAWATCH

In an April 16, 2007 email, Hazel McCallion denies that City of Mississauga Corporate Security keeps records on Age and Ethnicity. Who at the City of Mississauga is responsible for the Mayor's VERY false statement?
EXHIBIT 131124 02 Print screen of City of Mississauga Corporate Security “CSIS” database.

Despite heated, chronic denials by the City, Freedom of Information eventually confirmed that City of Mississauga Security also kept records on ethnicity in Column “R” under the heading “Complexion”.

Not only that but since January 1, 2006 the “CSIS” database had Caucasian spelled “Caucasion” and it would seem City of Mississauga Corporate Security also thinks that European is a complexion.

City of Mississauga Corporate Security "CSIS" database classifies European as a complexion

“In any event, please be advised that the City treats all its residents fairly regardless of language or ethnicity.”

The fact is, the City does NOT treat “residents fairly regardless of language or ethnicity”.

For example, if you are banned or arrested by “Contract Security” on City property (see below), you can file a complaint with the province under Bill 159. Not so if you’re unfortunate enough meet up with a City of Mississauga Corporate Security guard. You are then denied that route and can only “complain” through the City’s Staff-drafted public complaints process –where the Security bosses “investigate” –a Freedom of Information confirmed Road to Nowhere.

City of Mississauga's confirmed use of "Contract Security" turns residents into Haves and Have Nots.

City of Mississauga Corporate Security LETTERS TO HAZEL MCCALLION logo

[I REQUEST THAT THIS COMMUNICATION BE INCLUDED AS CORRESPONDENCE IN THE OCTOBER 9, 2013 COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES AND OCTOBER 21, 2013 GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE MINUTES]

Dear Madam Mayor,

I’m sitting on the floor outside the Security Office as Crime Awareness Day 2013 is happening all around me. I can think of no more fitting way to finally deliver on my February 2010 promise to meet with you to discuss my concerns relating to the City’s governance in general, and your Corporate Security “force” in particular.

Please remember that I requested permission to document our meeting on video and you responded with “anything you want”. I also understand that at best, I might be able to get an hour of your time. I propose that we meet on Monday, October 6, 2014 –just over a year from now. I chose this date for three reasons.

First I’ve attended enough court sessions to know that to make the most efficient use of time, lawyers exchange factums. I propose to do that as well –provide you a series of factums over the course of a year, to be included in Council and Governance Committee minutes. These factums will be Freedom of Information documents, and audio/video evidence (ie: Staff
interviews, meetings, speeches etc).

The Oxford dictionary defines “factum” as:

factum

noun (pluralfactums /-təmz/ or facta /-tə/) Law chiefly Canadiana
statement of the facts of a case.

I’m sure you’ll agree that if I state something supported with Freedom of Information, audio, or video evidence, then the factum will indeed be “facts of a case”. Your Staff can review each and respond where they see I might be in error. Or not.

Second, I propose meeting a year from now because by the time of our meeting I will be 65 and officially a senior.

My third and final reason for waiting a year is that I know that nothing I say or do will actually have any effect on anything, other than setting the record straight and finally answering your question.

What question?

You asked it during the October 16, 2008 Peel Police Homicide Information Session at Peel Regional Council. Frustrated by the spike in homicides that year, you’d asked Chief Metcalfe and Peel Regional Council, “We’re spending a lot of money on programs. What is missing?”

You asked “What is missing?” five years ago. I submit that the answer to your “What is missing?” goes a long way to explain what is missing in the McMurtry/Curling Review of the Roots of Youth Violence report.

The City’s 2013 Crime Awareness day is a rainy, gray affair and I’ve taken enough time sitting on the floor of the Great Hall.

So please slot a time for me for Monday, October 6, 2014 (or later). I look forward to a productive hour of your time.

You have my very best wishes,

Ursula

Subject: Question regarding my February 2007 FOI request

Hi Ms. McEwan,I’ve just finished an email to Ken Owen clarifying what I would like for an update on the list of bans, trespasses and arrests (BTA’s) that I first requested as in FOI back in February 2007. Back then you may recall I told you that I was concerned about MissCorpSec’s banning practices and wanted to analyze their BTA records especially as it related to facility, ethnicity and age.If you were in Council back in December 2006 (yes, that long ago) it was the first time I tried to give a deputation on MissCorpSec practices.McCallion and Bench intmidated me so much that I chickened out and aborted.It’s been that long that I’ve been emailing The Corporation, trying to get McCallion et al to analyze the bans/trepasses/arrests of MissCorpSec especially as it pertained to “at-risk youth”. The Mayor’s subsequent December 2006 email-refusal to investigate and assurance that the city “treated all citizens fairly” led me to Freedom of Information.I came to you and FOI for MissCorpSec banning records.I know that in our talks about what I wanted in that first ban/trespass/arrest printout, I told you that I was worred about how MissCorpSec dealt with Youth and especially visible minority youth.I also informed you that I wished to analyze any trends based on facilities, age and even ethnicity of those banned, arrested etc. I requested records for a decade.You may recall that when you told me that MissCorpSec only began keeping computer records since January 2006. I hope that you can recall that you also said, that the only data MissCorpSec kept were  “two fields”.I’ve posted that FOI list to the Net long ago and allow me to aim you at just as an example. Please take a look.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/43172810@N00/448642308/sizes/o/in/set-72157600092315322/

As you can see Freedom of Information provided me with just two fields. “Date of Issue” and “Cause of Ban”.

You may recall that I was incredulous. I asked you how Mayor McCallion could assure me in email that Mississauga treated citizens fairly if MissCorpSec only kept those two fields and that therefore it was impossible to analyze and back up such an assurance.

You may recall the massive effort I expended to secure the original “tags” in order to snare more details like facility name, age etc even if it were just the arrests. You know that I even headed out to Burnamthorpe Court House for those tags. I even emailed McCallion again asking for an estimate of how much it would cost to find the “shadows” (the people banned, trespass, arrested) and tags.

Yet Brampton Corporate Security gave me the info (date, ban/tresp/arrest, cause, facility, age, ethnicity –even security guard name) right away (first time asking) –including a vast list of other security-related queries for $420. A true bargain (especially a Time bargain).

My prupose for writing. Question.

Who at MissCorpSec back in early 2007 (when I made that first printout request) told you that MissCorpSec only kep records of those two fields and that that would all I would ever be able to get?

Thanks.

Hi,

Me again. I’ve just did a quick check and have a new question.

You say that “the incident in question did not show up because it was related to a ban from all facilities while the search criteria that were driven by the FOI request was specific to Burnhamthorpe.”

To be clear, the incident in question was an “all community centres” ban originating from  Burnhamthorpe Archery Group.

I’ve just checked the Malton CC MissCorp/sec database printouts. They’re from the same FOI batch as the Burnhamthorpe one –stats from for all major community centres up to September 20, 2008.

So I’d assume that there’d be a  Burnhamthorpe-specific search, a McKechnie-specific search, a Malton-specific search, a RiverGrove one etc etc.

I’ve confirmed that so far three “all community centres” and “all facilities” bans show up DO for the Malton-specific FOI search..

So why not Burnhamthorpe?

So who at MissCorpSec confirmed your suspicions that the reason the Youth didn’t show was because the printout was for a facility-specific search. Because that’s simply wrong.

Or, I ask that he explain why “all community centres” “all City facilities” bans do show up in the Malton-specific searches arriving in the same batch as the Burnhamthorpe one.

The question that I have sir is this. Way back in December 2006 I alerted Hazel McCallion about concerns that I had re: treatment of at-risk youth and visible minorities at the nds of MissCorpSec.

Here’s what she wrote back.

“In any event, please be advised that the City treats all its residents fairly regardless of language or ethnicity.”

What data/stats did Madam Mayor use to make that assertion? Serious question.

Thanks

I’ve confirmed my suspicion that the incident in question did not show up because it was related to a ban from all facilities while the search criteria that were driven by the FOI request was specific to Burnhamthorpe.  The list provided to you with the decision letter is complete relative to the requested search criteria.

To Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion “I’m sitting on the floor outside the Security Office as Crime Awareness Day is happening all around me.”

September 23rd, 2013  

For the record, what follows is video of me reading an email written to Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion during Saturday’s Mississauga Crime Awareness Day as well as a transcript of the actual letter.

City of Mississauga Corporate Security, Peel Regional Police: “What is missing?” –Hazel McCallion


Video transcript of the actual letter.

[I REQUEST THAT THIS COMMUNICATION BE INCLUDED AS CORRESPONDENCE IN THE OCTOBER 9, 2013 COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES AND OCTOBER 21, 2013 GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE MINUTES]

Dear Madam Mayor,

I’m sitting on the floor outside the Security Office as Crime Awareness Day 2013 is happening all around me. I can think of no more fitting way to finally deliver on my February 2010 promise to meet with you to discuss my concerns relating to the City’s governance in general, and your Corporate Security “force” in particular.

Please remember that I requested permission to document our meeting on video and you responded with “anything you want”. I also understand that at best, I might be able to get an hour of your time. I propose that we meet on Monday, October 6, 2014 –just over a year from now. I chose this date for three reasons.

First I’ve attended enough court sessions to know that to make the most efficient use of time, lawyers exchange factums. I propose to do that as well –provide you a series of factums over the course of a year, to be included in Council and Governance Committee minutes. These factums will be Freedom of Information documents, and audio/video evidence (ie: Staff
interviews, meetings, speeches etc).

The Oxford dictionary defines “factum” as:

factum

noun (pluralfactums /-təmz/ or facta /-tə/) Law chiefly Canadiana
statement of the facts of a case.

I’m sure you’ll agree that if I state something supported with Freedom of Information, audio, or video evidence, then the factum will indeed be “facts of a case”. Your Staff can review each and respond where they see I might be in error. Or not.

Second, I propose meeting a year from now because by the time of our meeting I will be 65 and officially a senior.

My third and final reason for waiting a year is that I know that nothing I say or do will actually have any effect on anything, other than setting the record straight and finally answering your question.

What question?

You asked it during the October 16, 2008 Peel Police Homicide Information Session at Peel Regional Council. Frustrated by the spike in homicides that year, you’d asked Chief Metcalfe and Peel Regional Council, “We’re spending a lot of money on programs. What is missing?”

You asked “What is missing?” five years ago. I submit that the answer to your “What is missing?” goes a long way to explain what is missing in the McMurtry/Curling Review of the Roots of Youth Violence report.

The City’s 2013 Crime Awareness day is a rainy, gray affair and I’ve taken enough time sitting on the floor of the Great Hall.

So please slot a time for me for Monday, October 6, 2014 (or later). I look forward to a productive hour of your time.

You have my very best wishes,

Ursula

HAZEL MCCALLION QUOTE ON STAFF NON-COMPLIANCE TO POLICIES (AUDIT COMMITTEE 090511) "There seems to be a complete disregard for policy."

MISSISSAUGAWATCH tripped up by Peel Police while covering brief hearing that saw charges dropped against Carolyn Parrish,

December 22nd, 2012  

On November 20, 2012, the Mississauga News reported that “Charges levied against former councillor Carolyn Parrish that she violated the Ontario Municipal Elections Act by overspending during last year’s Ward 5 by-election have been withdrawn by a Crown prosecutor.”

I actually showed up at Burnhamthorpe Courthouse to file a report and hopefully even get an interview with Carolyn Parrish. Turns out the report I actually filed was not the one I expected!

As always, the video, complete with video transcript.

 [VIDEO TRANSCRIPT BEGINS]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH walking towards Mississauga Burnhamthorpe Courthouse November 20, 2012

It is Tuesday, November the 20th, 2012 and I’m here at the City of Mississauga courthouse. It is my understanding that there’s going to be a court —I’m not sure if it’s an appearance or what.

The problem, of course, is that I forgot an audio-recorder and I’m here on City of Mississauga property. So, this is the only way that I can protect myself. And I have to do this, again for the record, because City of Mississauga Staff lie.

And also there’s no accountability of Staff. So in other words if you complain about lying to the elected officials, they can’t directly investigate whether what you say about City Staff is true.

[VIDEO INSERT]

Councillor Pat Saito, Mississauga Governance Committee meeting, April 16, 2012

That is a Staff responsibility. It’s a Senior Staff —Commissioner/Director-level responsibility, or City-Manager-level responsibility.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH walking towards Mississauga Burnhamthorpe Courthouse November 20, 2012

That is, that the City Manager, Janice Baker provides this impenetrable barrier between City of Mississauga Staff and elected officials.

[At the door of the courthouse] Anyway, I’ll turn this off [close lens cap] and I’ll see. At the very least what I’m going to do is turn the camera off [close lens cap] at this point right here.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH following Carolyn Parrish out of Mississauga Burnhamthorpe Courthouse November 20, 2012

So here I’m officially out. And Parrish and Company.

This was very very very very brief. It was my understanding that the Crown dropped the charges.

Actually the most interesting thing that happened was —I was called by police and prosecution lawyer, basically telling me that I couldn’t videotape inside Burnhamthorpe courthouse. And I said I wasn’t.

That I was only using the video camera as an audio-recorder. And then the police officer said I couldn’t do that either.

And I carefully read the rules on the door which said that you can’t audio-record the hearing.

So I told the police officer that I was only protecting myself because of [sic] City of Mississauga Corporate Security are liars.

Here’s the deal.

His response was that I had a personal vendetta —personal vendetta versus a legitimate complaint and that they really are liars. And it’s just so typical  —so typical of law enforcement to stick together.

This kind of Blue Line —oh, they [City of Mississauga Security] can’t possibly be liars, even though Peel Police —what was it, three of four of their police officers were found to the lying in court as part of testimony.   [Note, the Toronto Star reported that it was actually five Peel Police officers lying in court]

Toronto Star "Peel officers who 'lied under oath' won't face charges" October 19, 2012

And as I told the police officer, I have to always always have an audio-recorder going when I’m on City of Mississauga property because City of Mississauga Staff —they lie! And this is a way of protecting myself. End of Story.

Like why is it so difficult that police officers can’t accept the fact that City of Mississauga Staff —and especially their security guards lie? Like, what’s so hard about that, especially given the fact that Peel Police themselves were found to be lying in court?

Like. What the Hell!

Alzheimer’s Month, the impending Alzheimer’s Tsunami –and a “salute” for old time’s sake.

September 12th, 2012  

Last blog was August 27th, 2012 —never has so much time gone by between entries.

We’ve had an emergency and are now dealing with the fallout.

My husband and I were supposed to be on Maui until September 6th but were forced to grab a flight back to Canada two weeks early. We were literally ripped from Sun and Ocean without our annual ritual of long-longing last looks and good-byes.

There was absolutely no transition from Maui’s Brilliant Blues and Gentle Greens to Mississauga’s Smog-Browns and Concrete-Grays.

Since arriving in Mississauga my time has been dominated by elder care almost 24/7. And when I do get relieved, my brain either wants to sleep or bugger-off-play. I simply can’t concentrate on one thing for any length of time.

It’s like my brain wants out!

Since 2009 as caregivers, we have had to battle cataracts, glaucoma, prostate cancer, hip replacement, colon cancer, wet macular degeneration (to a point of being legally blind), falls after falls after falls —and that’s just from the top of my head.

Now Alzheimer’s has kicked down both our doors.

And Alzheimer’s is a battle we won’t win.

I recall our family doctor warning us about Alzheimer’s —warned us that we all had to grow a thick skin and steel ourselves— steel ourselves because “in the end there’s only Tragedy.”

“In the end”? There’s fucking Tragedy now!

Over the last year I’ve made it a goal to learn all I can about Alzheimer’s. So let me help you. There is no better Alzheimer’s resource on the Internet than Bob DeMarco’s Alzheimer’s Reading Room at: www.alzheimersreadingroom.com. You need to go.

If you’re a quick study, DeMarco’s Alzheimer’s Reading Room is the website to start your research —and the place to stay! DeMarco isn’t just about conveying Knowledge about Alzheimer’s. He and his late mother Dotty have inspired and touched the hearts of thousands of his reader-caregivers.

I confess that when I’m at a total loss —emotional wreck, I visit Bob DeMarco’s mum, Dotty. I watch videos of her. You know, to remember what’s Important.

95 Year Old Dotty at the Pool March 18 (by Bob DeMarco)
*note: Dotty died just over a month later May 25, 2012 at 5 AM

In a recent report a Johns Hopkins psychiatrist stated that Alzheimer’s is now ahead of cancer as the most feared disease. When you are sucked deep into Alzheimer’s World you too will understand why.

September is World Alzheimer’s Month. The statistics are grim. The Alzheimer’s Association website states that “worldwide, 35 million people and their families are affected by dementia”.  That’s now.

Just imagine what happens when us-Boomers hit “prime time”…

Last, for readers expecting something political from me, I’ve got nothing.

No. Wait. Have enough energy for this cut-and-paste.

HEY HEY MISSCORPSEC!
WHAT DO YOU SAY?
HOW MANY LIES
DID YOU LIE TODAY?

You know, a cut-and-paste —to remember what’s Important

 

UPDATE 12/09/13  Yesterday I experienced the most intense case of “sundowning” yet.

For those unfamiliar with the term, the Mayo Clinic states that sundowning “refers to a state of confusion at the end of the day and into the night. Sundowning isn’t a disease, but a symptom that often occurs in people with dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease. The cause isn’t known.”

I suspect the sundowning trigger yesterday was a live-broadcast German vs Austria soccer game. It wasn’t long after it finished that my Alzheimer’s Elder called for his shoes and announced he had to go Home. Announce is usually all he does –call for us to pack up and talk about Home.

Usually I’m able to distract and redirect his attentions. Not this time.

Despite a left leg still injured from a fall, he put on his shoes, slowly “walker-ed” to the bedroom, put on a jacket, removed that to put on a nicer jacket, returned to the living-room and called for his cap. Throughout I followed right behind him making sure he was safe from another fall.

Cap on his head, he then sat down and demanded he be driven Home.

I asked if he wanted a chocolate cookie. He waved that off. That’s how bad this sundowning was.

So I turned on TV as a distraction. Flipping channels.

“TV is shit,” he said. I sure wasn’t about to argue that proclamation. Flipping through more I found a face I recognized —the CEO of Credit Valley Hospital (CVH) and she was talking about the merger of CVH with Trillium Health Care Centre.

“Oh, look! It’s Credit Valley Hospital on TV!” I said. “Remember what a terrific hospital it is? Boy are we lucky to live in a place that is so close to Credit Valley Hospital!”

Then there were vignettes featuring Credit Valley and Trillium staff talking about their programs and how they care for people.

“And Trillium Hospital fixed your shoulder when you fell from the tree, remember?” I offered.

“Boy are we lucky to live in a place that’s even closer to Trillium Hospital, huh? Two great hospitals so close together.”

Silence.

The Sundowning Storm had passed.

By dinner, he was still in his shoes and jacket.

I told him he could wear his special jacket at the table because this was his home and he could bloody do whatever he wanted. But just to be careful not to spill anything on it. Without a word he removed it. And of course I assisted…

He had an excellent start this morning. Said he slept “very good” last night. Both are napping now.

For those new to sundowning, I’ve read that Alzheimer’s caregivers even go as far as driving the Sundowner around for a while and then return home.

What follows is a video —not because it will change how the City of Mississauga does business, it’s just for the record.

The video includes an audio excerpt from a March 26, 2012 interview with Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities and Property Management (aka Director City of Mississauga Corporate Security) wherein I proclaim, “City Staff lie.”

My one regret about this interview is that I couldn’t muster the courage to also tell Ken Owen that his Security Staff are abusive hacks that

1. fabricate evidence

and:

2. conduct biased, fraudulent investigations.

I’ll leave those two for another time….

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 26, 2012

So, what can I do for you today?

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 2012

Okay, just some things.

As you know I’m researching Security and stuff like that, okay, through Freedom of Information. And I just want to talk about some of the incident reports and also the public complaints system.

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 26, 2012

Okay.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 201

I have a video camera here. Would you be comfortable if I videotaped myself doi— okay. Would I, could I at least use this video sur- video camera as a second—

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 26, 2012

No. Is that a tape recorder going there?

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 2012

Yeah.

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 26, 2012

That’s fine.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 2012

Yeah, but I mean I can use this as a tape recorder by not having the lens on. Just as a back-up.

[permission denied]

No? Okay. That’s fine.

[fast forward]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 2012

Remember, I’m asking you for an interview. And I’d actually wanted to discuss the Council Code of Conduct and Staff investigating people.

I completely was blown away by realizing that there’s [sic] informal investigations that can go on. If—

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 26, 2012

I don’t know why keep saying that. Like it’s some nefarious thing.

If somebody brings to my—

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 2012

Okay—

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 26, 2012

—attention, an allegation of misconduct on the part of my Staff, whether it’s a formal complaint or not, then I’m going to make inquiries about what went on. I want to know the details.

I want to know the other side of the story.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 2012

And I don’t blame you.

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 26, 2012

If you call that an investigation then, I, you know, it’s an investigation. I call—

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 2012

Actually you called it an investigation.

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 28, 2012

I call it informal inquiries into the details of a matter.

MISSISSAUGAWATCH interview with Ken Owen, March 26, 2012

Okay, but what happens though is that the public is not privy to what the people say. I —right?

Like you actually do informal queries to the people who are being complained about. And don’t contact, or the public may not know at all that this has happened. And—

Ken Owen, Director, City of Mississauga Facilities/Property Management and Corporate Security, March 28, 2012

I’m not sure why that matters, but, okay.

[long pause as I summon the courage to tell it like it is.]

BEWARE of TRAPS in Mississauga Code of Conduct if filing complaint with integrity commissioner

December 7th, 2011  

Once again, apologies for taking so long to write a new blog.

For the record, currently I’m in a protracted research phase —doing a lot of reading, studying actually. Also doing a lot of videotaping while reviewing five years worth of audio and videotape relating to City of Mississauga municipal government. And throughout all this, I’ve also have to scour Freedom of Information documents going all the way back to January 2007.

Not fun.

Also, I’m preparing a 3-part video on the Mississauga Judicial Inquiry’s recommendations as they relate the City of Mississauga’s Council Code of Conduct, hiring of an integrity commissioner and other MYTHissauga window-dressing “ethics” initiatives.

Today, the Mississauga News came out with article, Politicians to blame for voter apathy: study.

Some highlights:

The politically disengaged are not as apathetic or ignorant of politics as previously thought — they opt out because they feel the political system has failed them, says a survey of Canadians across the country, including a focus group from Mississauga.

• less engaged Canadians overwhelmingly describe themselves as outsiders. They do not feel they have a voice or any ownership stake in the political system
• Canadians’ dislike for politics seems closely related to a perceived gap between the ideals of democracy and the reality of how they are represented politically
• Disengagement is, in fact, a response to people’s personal interaction with politics and government

“A common theme across the focus groups was that the political system has failed many Canadians in clear and tangible ways,” said Alison Loat, Samara’s co-founder and executive director. “Consequently, political disengagement is a learned response — this is a far cry from the conventional wisdom that assumes the disengaged simply do not care.”

Kendall Anderson, Samara’s communications and project manager, says the research shows most disengaged non-voters start off wanting to be part of the system, but a series of unpleasant experiences ultimately turns them into non-voters.

Love that “perceived gap between the ideals of democracy and the reality of how they are represented politically”. Recall how I warn people about the “vast yawning gap between what Mississauga trumpets versus the behind-the-scenes Reality.” The perceptive reader will see that “vast yawning gap between what Mississauga trumpets versus the behind-the-scenes Reality” simply means “lie”.

Quite convenient for the Mississauga News to come out with their citizen-disengagement article today. Leads in quite nicely to the theme of this video: Our Lying, Deceptive Governments. And how integrity commissioners are just a waste of taxpayers’ dollars. A reminder that I truly believe that “The System is CORRUPT, there is no way to fix it.”

So. The video, complete with transcript.

BEWARE of TRAPS in Mississauga Code of Conduct if filing complaint with integrity commissioner (7:34 min)

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT BEGINS]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting from Cooksville 5 & 10 intersection. December 5, 2011

It is Monday, December the 5th, 2011 and I’m parked here at Highway 5 and 10. And I just want to report a little bit, to provide a little bit of an update for you regarding what’s been going on in Mississauga.

There’s so many competing issues for me right now that the best way for me to describe what’s happening is that I feel mired in all kinds of conflicting issues. And mired to the point of paralysis.

And it’s not just conflicting and competing but there’s also this important kind of thinking that I have to do.

It isn’t enough just reading this book, “REPORT ON THE MISSISSAUGA JUDICIAL INQUIRY Updating the Ethical Infrastructure“. You need to think about it. You need to think what the implications are.

So, one of the things that I’m doing is I’m reading this [Mississauga Council Code of Conduct April 2011]. Not just reading but understanding the rules —almost to the point of committing certain things to memory.

And then I go back and I read in here [REPORT ON THE MISSISSAUGA JUDICIAL INQUIRY Updating the Ethical Infrastructure] what Commissioner Cunningham recommended for improving the Mississauga Code of Conduct.

And it’s taken a lot of time, and a lot of pondering —a lot of thinking.

I’m also filing at least one —at least one complaint with the integrity commissioner.

And it’s got to be done right. It’s got to be done right because I got really tripped up in a complaint that I filed against City of Mississauga Corporate Security.

And I need to refer you to the series on nursing homes by the Toronto Star. And they were reporting on some of the horrid abuses at nursing homes including one where a male nurse raped one of the women in his care.

The Toronto Star in that particular article also said that when they reviewed the investigation letters in nursing homes, the actual letter, the resolution letter, was sanitized. And that’s the word that they used: “sanitized“.

And so sanitized that they really couldn’t tell what the complaint was about. Or what they were investigating.

So, they couldn’t for example, determine from the letters whether something dealt with sexual abuse —or physical abuse.

I can tell you the City of Mississauga Corporate Security do the same thing. They sanitize their resolution letters so badly, when you read the resolution letter and then read what the actual public complaint was about, they’re two different things.

And just a little bit of background.

I’d sent an email asking a question through publicinfo@mississauga.ca. And I got a response that I considered rude enough that I asked for the identity of the individual who sent me the comment. And I repeated my request, for that person to identify himself, over a period of three months.

So I gave the person almost three months to come clean, and identify himself. When he didn’t I filed a complaint.

The individual confessed and by “confessing”, this person knew that he could stop the investigation and that was it. Basically I got a resolution letter that said, yes, the person was rude, he had been spoken with and I’m to consider the matter closed.

The point is, that again, when somebody reads the letter, oh, a person was being rude, it’s been taken care of.

No! No. The individual refused to identify himself!

And when I filed Freedom of Information asking them to follow the trail of where my email was sent, up across the top it said, “Jamie Hillis” —who is the Manager of Corporate Security.

So there’s every evidence, that the person who was hiding anonymously in email was actually the Manager, Jamie Hillis, who’s charged, by the way, with implementing the public complaints process! And the policy.

By the way, I fought that all the way to the IPC, Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commission. And they sided with allowing this individual his anonymity.

It was a mistake that I made —well, first of all, the biggest mistake was I felt now that they had a formal complaints procedure that it would be somehow legitimate. Clearly it wasn’t.

And I keep saying that the City of Mississauga has infinite capacity to pervert. They have infinite capacity to pervert policies, procedures, guidelines, provincial legislation and anything else.

And it’s the same here [with the Mississauga Council Code of Conduct April 2011]. I know for a fact, just because of prior behaviour, that if I don’t file the complaint with the integrity commissioner absolutely according to this [Mississauga Council Code of Conduct April 2011] document —it too will be perverted.

Also just for the record, I don’t believe for a minute that when I do file the complaint —or complaints, with the integrity commissioner, that it’s even going to matter.

Again. The City of Mississauga has infinite capacity to pervert.

And something else. I’ve been talking about McCallion-backed councillors. Tovey, Mullin, Fonseca, Crombie, Starr, Mahoney and Saito. Seven of them.

And just a reminder that [Councillor] Nando Iannicca basically said to all the councillors —and he stood by this. And he said, if you did not vote for the Inquiry, you’re not fit for public service.

[Video Insert begins]

Councillor Nando Iannicca, Mississauga General Committee, November 2, 2011

If you did not vote for the Inquiry. If you do not agree with its findings. And if you are not appalled at what happened, you are not fit for public service.

Acting Chair, McCallion-backed loyalist Councillor Katie Mahoney, Mississauga General Committee, November 2, 2011

Councillor Iannicca, I am going to cut this deba—

[Video Insert ends]

MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting from Cooksville 5 & 10 intersection. December 5, 2011

So you understand [laughs] that three of the four councillors who are going to be “working” on this Code of Conduct and in possibly hiring and making recommendations for Mississauga’s next integrity commissioner are, according to Nando Iannicca, “not fit for public service”.

So that gives me a lot of confidence here!

[Music: Caspian & Grafhic – Matrix Shit]

This thing here with the integrity commissioner —and preparing a complaint, just believe me when I say, it’s got to be done in the right order. And you have to make sure as a citizen that you don’t fall into the traps that are inherent in this [Mississauga Council Code of Conduct April 2011] document.

And here’s an allegation. They were put here on purpose. On purpose.

[DIP TO BLACK]

Councillor Nando Iannicca, Mississauga General Committee, November 2, 2011

If you did not vote for the Inquiry. If you do not agree with its findings. And if you are not appalled at what happened, you are not fit for public service.

Councillor Iannicca, I am going to cut—

[VIDEO TRANSCRIPT ENDS]

Example of SANITIZED City of Mississauga Corporate Security resolution letter.

Can you tell what the complaint was about?
Can you tell this complaint was against a Security BOSS?
Can you tell from this letter that contrary to Policy, a Security underling “investigated” a superior —and cleared him?

City Mississauga Corporate Security public complaints resolution letter heavily SANITIZED.
