He isn’t on the payroll yet but City Manager designate Haassan Basit took part in the Ontario Big City Mayors AGM/Conference where former Toronto Chief Planner Jennifer Keesmat  took part as a keynote speaker.

Premier Ford was on hand for the photo op.

Ms Keesmatt will be in Burlington I May where the Mayor hopes she is a strong enough attraction to fill the 700 seat Main Theatre at the Performing Arts.

    And so he should, if he was absent from such an important meeting he would be criticized for that.

    Can our mayor wear something else for once.

    Agree with Joe and Penny. I’ve long been of the opinion that it’s all about the next election, almost everything our mayor does, every photo op, every media blast, every strategy, what gets done and what doesn’t – it’s simply campaigning, not governing. It is so tiresome. Then again we now know she doesn’t even support democracy in favour of her own power, so not surprised.

    Other than promoting incumbents, what is the purpose of this photo? Is it any wonder ordinary everyday citizens have less chance than a snowball in hell of getting elected.

  • Penny

    What happened to the rest of council?

    Seems as if Councillor Galbraith is back in the good books.
