Following is a quote from a speech made by Wendell Phillips on January 28, 1852. It was sent to me by Dr. Henry Regier this morning and I think that certain Woolwich Township Councillors and Mayor need to remind themselves that holding office is not about getting their way; it is about getting both the public's way and the honest way.

Mr. Phillips was speaking to members of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society when he said:

"Eternal vigilanxce is the price of liberty; power is ever stealing from the many to the few. The manna of popular liberty must be gathered each day or it is rotten. The living sap of today outgrows the dead rind of yesterday. The hand encrusted with power becomes, either from human depravity or esprit de corps, the necessary enemy of the people. Only by continued oversight can the democrat in office be prevented from hardening into a despot; only by unintermitted agitation can a people be sufficiently awake to principle not to let liberty be smothered in material prosperity.".

This is why recently Dr. Dan Holt decided to file a request for an Audit of Councillor Scott Hahn's obviously incorrect and inaccurate Financial Statement. This is why I have vigorously attacked Mayor Shantz and Councillor Mark Bauman's indecent and dishonest attempts to smear CPAC in order to replace them with a Chemtura friendlier process and individuals.
