"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

It's a Lie ,I tell you...a Brazen Falshood.

"The Hydro building needed for our purpose was transferred to use of the Federal Department of National Defense. As a result, we are now contemplating construction of a $26.9 million works yard and garage complete with an $814.000. treatment facility to remove non-existent salt from snow melting in Spring temperatures."

Again this old nugget! The building was declared surplus - if we needed it no one spoke up. You can blame the "former" all you want, but at the time the former had 3 "currents" on council as well

Among  many advantages of social media is never having to say you are sorry for reminding people of what was done,

The list grows as the term extends and people do appreciate reminders.

This poster keeps insisting the building was declared surplus and no-one  spoke up. .

That's a downright lie.

(frog  is croaking in my garden. Never heard one like that before. Maybe a different species)

The  building was never declared surplus. We had to do  that when a property is being sold.

And we did have people making inquiries about when it might be sold.

I don't know why a politician would imagine they could get away with telling a lie like that .
A declaration of surplus is just that. Coucil has to approve it.  The notice has to be posted in the media.

One of the mysteries about the former Mayor was how she was able to entice people to say things she wanted to be said, without saying them herself and  taking responsibility/

There's speculation in Town that after enticing J.Gallo into the mayoralty, she plans to jump in at the last minute  and steal it out from under.

Yes I know it's ridiculous. But old Hollywood movies were full of such plots with dire results.Joan Crawford "Mommie Dearest,"comes to mind

That  such plotting would be feverishly explored in back rooms is alas not ridiculous.

Perspective  of reality has never been sharp .Positively dim,in fact.  Totally obscure in the short run,
intermediate and long run as well.

To be totally frank. ... comprehension  has never risen above zilch , zero, nada nil  nothing and  E minus .

But it's the followers who are truly mystifying in their loyal adherence.

Like the one above....  the battery,.... ever-ready to lie to obscure the obvious/

This would be akin to 'The Night of the Living Dead"

or "Dracula's Revenge."

You can even throw in a "Wolf Man" or two.

The more I dwell on this possibility the greater will grow the list of remembered horror movies.

Nope. she will not replace Cllr Gallo. I am doubtful if she is even canvasing in Aurora for Cllr Ballard [ subject to correction if she has been to someone else's door.]
Staying strictly in Newmarket. You have to recall that the past administration was so paranoid that they had 2 locked doors preventing access to the Office of the Mayor.

I'd love for her to show up at my door. It would be lots of fun. Waiting for Gallo too.
