Chief Administrative Officer’s Report
Councillor Saje queried whether an In Camera conference call could be held with Council and the potential light manufacturing plant. The Chief Administrative Officer noted this may occur at a later date, with the planned conference call to include the CAO and Mayor to proceed as scheduled. Council will be updated on the outcome of the conference call.
Mayor and CAO don't want council involvement? Again!
It is becoming glaringly apparent that councillors are out of the loop on the most important things affecting our municipality and that our mayor is a one-man show needing only a compliant and subservient CAO to do his bidding, in the shadows, away from the limelight and cameras, which the mayor shares with no one but himself.
Wasn't it only last week we learned that no member of council had ever met or spoken with any member from Riversdale Resources, while this mayor and CAO claimed to have had several meetings and discussions with them over the last few months?
Based on this track record of councillors being deliberately left out of the loop begs the question. How much were they really privy to with this possibly dicey CLC-Medican company deal before voting 'unanimously' to quite possibly giving away the family farm?
UNAPPROVED COUNCIL MINUTES
JANUARY 22, 2013
BUSINESS OUT OF CAMERA
M#6748-13: Councillor Gallant moved that Council direct the Chief Administrative Officer to enter into a Sale and Construction Agreement for the Development of the former Crowsnest Centre Site with Medican General Contractors Ltd.
Did any of them do their homework/research with respect to looking into the background of this company, especially in lieu of their recent questionable and disconcerting problems in the last few years, and current precarious financial situation?
It certainly appears that our councillors serve no useful purpose other than to act as Yes Men, shepple for their master, the mayor.
They see not the problem they represent to our community for they are obviously blind and have been deliberately dumbed down to what is going on in their own backyard. How is it possible to expect due diligence from such people who see no problem in what is going on and how they are being used to further the ambitions of one man at our (and their) expense?
October cannot come soon enough!
The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem.
