Ontario’s anti-democratic Municipal Councils in action!!!!

Posted: May 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

Here’s how bad our local Municipalities have become in this new era of anti-democratic rule by Dalton McGuinty and Gang. This is very very important!

At a Public Meeting in Council Chambers at Adelaide-Metcalfe Township a tax paying citizen was “recording” the proceedings with a camcorder which is done throughout Ontario Council meetings across this Province. It is legal and allowed without any reprecussions whatsoever.

Allow this action to go without a serious investigation is tantamount to allowing a Dictatorship to flourish within our once FREE Society.

Videotaping=Trespassing?? : Adelaide-Metcalfe council 2012-05-07

Published on 8 May 2012 by 

At an Adelaide-Metcalfe council meeting, the mayor calls in the OPP, exercising his “power of Authority” to remove the videographer from a public/open meeting. the township did not have a bylaw that prohibited videotaping. At a previous meeting the council had discussed videotaping the meeting themselves, or asking videographers to write a letter of intent to council before a meeting that they want to tape. But no discussion was made this day. The mayor ambushed with calling the cops – no alternatives. Some democracy that is… People- don’t let your democratically elected council run your township like a dictatorship!

    well it gets worse- check out what they want o pass at the next meeting:
    13.3 Members of public must, while in attendance, maintain an appropriate level of decorum. The presiding member may, and at the request of any member of the council shall, determine the appropriateness of activities taking place in the public gallery. Activities which may be disruptive to the meeting, as determined by the presiding member, are forbidden. Persons who do not abide by direction from the Chair shall be required to leave the meeting.

    For greater certainty, the following activities are not permitted without authorization from the Chair: applause, heckling, shouting, singing and audible speech or conversations: the use of telephones, lighting, recording equipment, cameras, microphones and similar devices, displays of written or printed material, whether worn or affixed to other personal items, consuming food or beverages other than water, except as provided by the municipality

    False Authority!! Bow to false Authority and you lose.
    Citizens have the right record a public meeting of council of which the public pays for. The police are now doing the bidding of councils and corporations. Both police and municipalities are corporations……you aren’t
    It’s called Fascism!! Don’t back down until we have our country back. Then we send these treasonous dogs to jail……where they belong!

    • Municipal Councils are now being challenged by otherwise “non-political” citizens because of their rampant disregard for the real reasons they were “elected”!
      Councils are SERVANTS of the people, not Dictators! These malcontent’s had better get their act together. They can’t “hide” under the cloak of silence like our Provincial leaders can. They are part of the townships they represent and had better get back to to the roots of Democracy they were “hired” to uphold.
