Viciousness of municipal politics shown in Newmarket Ontario with vile attacks on female councilor

About the only thing I like about Henry Kissinger is this quote from him:

University politics are vicious precisely because the stakes are so small

I think of it every time I see how unintelligent people react in the political arena as it sums up how small minds coalesce around small issues.

It’s easier for them to wrap their brains around tiny things than admit to themselves and others they’re clueless about solving what really matters to those who they are supposed to be representing.

And when these idiots get caught-out, they generally react the same way – lashing out at a common enemy as either a distraction or because that’s all they know what to do.

A perfect example of this is what is going on in Newmarket Ontario where one male city councilor, Tom Vegh, uses his teenage son and friends to attack a female councilor, Maddie Dimuccio. *Warning* Screen shot image contains one very nasty word:

Undeterred, Dimuccio isn’t letting these types of disgusting personal and misogynistic attacks stop her from exposing some of the devious behavior of this council who state publicly they support honouring a dead boy but then secretly vote against naming a play-field after him. (see here)

We need more politicians like Maddie Dimuccio.

    The Municipal Council broke the law by holding the meeting out of the public eye. By openly commenting on the en-camera meeting she should be credited, not censured as some think she should. By using children as proxies in a political disagreement, those councillors have demonstrated that they are pus dripping maggots.

    Here are the rules for declaring a meeting in camera in Ontario.

    Technically, the boy is an identifiable individual so that is the criteria they would have used. So while people may not like the meeting going behind closed doors, at least they were following the existing rules. The Ontario government was very short sighted in giving Municipal Councils so much leeway in declaring meetings for in camera.

    Exceptions

    (2) A meeting or part of a meeting may be closed to the public if the subject matter being considered is,

    (a) the security of the property of the municipality or local board;

    (b) personal matters about an identifiable individual, including municipal or local board employees;

    (c) a proposed or pending acquisition or disposition of land by the municipality or local board;

    (d) labour relations or employee negotiations;

    (e) litigation or potential litigation, including matters before administrative tribunals, affecting the municipality or local board;

    (f) advice that is subject to solicitor-client privilege, including communications necessary for that purpose;

    (g) a matter in respect of which a council, board, committee or other body may hold a closed meeting under another Act. 2001, c. 25, s. 239 (2).
