The absolute truth regarding TAG is both better and worse than the above title indicates. They are scheduled to meet next Thursday November 5, 2015 at 6:30 pm. in Council Chambers. There are two technically competent individuals namely the Chair Dick Jackson and I believe Mr. Hofbauer is a hydrogeologist. Sebastian Seibel-Achenbach is currently in France but is a proven, honest voice. The rest are the mayor's buds including a proven pair of manipulative individuals with gross conflicts of interest.

Being a bud of the mayor is not an absolute dealbreaker. She has long practiced the politician's art of smiling and getting along with the voters. I like many others was fooled for years. It is simply interesting that she got rid of the best CPAC there had ever been simply to replace them with campaign supporters, acolytes and curling buddies. Kind of tells you exactly how much serious effort she really wants from TAG ie. zero.

Speaking of gross conflicts of interest as well as hypocrisy, I notice that all the Township meetings speak to 1. Disclosures of Pecuniary Interest rather than Disclosures of Conflict of Interest. Is this how two Tag members, MECAC (Compliance Audit Committee) and RAC members soothe their consciences? Three MECAC members at a minimum had no business making decisions, regarding mayor and regional councillor Shantz, yet they all claimed they had no Pecuniary Interests.

Appointees to boards, commissions and committees of councils are rarely the best qualified. They are political friends of friends. They can also be patronage appointments ie. payoffs for past favours with hopes for future favours. This once again is Canadian style corruption at which Woolwich Township flourishes.
