That's right you read it here. Woolwich Council did NOT break the law. Once in a row. Good for them. Their unscheduled(?), private, non-transparent "one on one discussions", "with a quorum present" were perfectly legal according to Ontario's new Ombudsman. I wonder if the old Ombudsman, Andre Marin, would have come to the same conclusion. Or even done an "investigation" without, after the initial written complaints, having interviewed/asked questions of the two persons closest to the action namely Dr. Holt and myself.

Yesterday's Waterloo Region Record carried the following story titled "Woolwich Council didn't break law" with the sub heading of "Ombudsman finds unscheduled meeting was legal". Regardless of whether Woolwich Council once again broke the Municipal Act they most certainly behaved atrociously and all of Waterloo Region and beyond are aware of it. They flatly refused to let Dr. Dan Holt speak even though he was a properly registered Delegate and on the Agenda. Only his backbone and willingness to simultaneously take on the entire Council (less Patrick M.) in open, public debate saved the day. Dr. Dan can be a pitbull when provoked and those idiots on Council certainly did that.

The main issue of course was Council's pathetic discrimination against longtime Woolwich volunteers who served honourably and with the full support of the prior Council who had appointed them onto CPAC (Chemtura Public Advisory Committee). CPAC were incredibly effective and too functional for both Chemtura and the Ontario M.O.E. who suddenly the instant a new Council more to their liking were elected began to boycott public CPAC meetings. This was a manufactured crisis courtesy of Sandy and Mark who needed some flimsy excuse to not reappoint the ongoing CPAC members to the incoming CPAC term. Council were so biased against these strong and professional CPAC members that they even threw out the original Applications in which all CPAC and SWAT (CPAC sub-committee) had applied along with Sandy's two buddies Pat Mclean and Susan Bryant. The problem was that even though there were more than enough applicants they weren't the "right" ones to suit Chemtura, M.O.E., Sandy or Mark B.. So they even went so far as to rig the Applications for CPAC specifically to remove the old members.

That folks is the moral and ethical background of most of Woolwich Council. Why are you then surprised to learn that they routinely violate the Municpal Act and Election Financing Laws? Not to mention whatever we haven't discovered as yet.
