The Mayor of Aurora, at public expense and in the name of the community...on the eve of Thanksgiving .... when families gather to celebrate the blessings we enjoy..... had three families among us served with notice of intent to sue ....with all the might of the municipality....with murky reference to political criticism ... for damages of six million dollars.
At the final meeting of Council .... as candidates seeking re-election .... when all other Councils have already conceded authority in principle.... while stewardship is being called to account .... Morris, MacEachern. Gaertner,Granger, Gallo and Wilson reached out and smote a vengeful blow against members of our community whose interests they had sworn an Oath to protect.
Once again, they huddled together behind a malodorous, masquerade of wronged righteousness and cloak of legal counsel, bought with taxes collected from the families being sued and the rest of us, at no time acquiesced to be used for any such purpose.
We are in the process of exercising our choice in the election of a Council to serve for the next four years.
The names Morris,MacEachern,Gaertner, Granger.Gallo and Wilson will be on the ballot.
By this final act, we know without doubt,their understanding of the authority and purpose of a Council.
It remains for new candidates to declare, without equivocation, a stance on our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the role of an elected representative to stand in its defense.
