We look at the four complaints levelled against Burlington’s Shawna Stolte (two upheld by the Integrity Commissioner) and ask why two of Stolte’s colleagues would have used such extreme measures to resolve a matter with a colleague, and look at the wider context of the Integrity Commissioner’s role in Ontario.
Burlington’s Ward Four Councillor Shawna Stolte has today delivered a scathing response to the actions of two of her colleagues, Ward 1 Councillor Kelvin Galbraith and Ward 3 Councillor Rory Nisan, who made a secret complaint against her to Burlington’s Integrity Commissioner earlier this year. The report was published—or made available to Burlington City Hall—last Friday, but the was not forwarded to media until Councillor Stolte herself forwarded it today.
Laura Steiner sits in for Joel as we discuss the late Hazel McCallion’s legacy for Mississauga and the 905 region. And we share some first impressions (recorded before Tuesday’s interview with Kate Graham – go and listen to it if you haven’t heard it yet) on the 40 Liberal insiders who have put their names to an attempt to co-opt Mike Schreiner from the Ontario Greens.
At 10am on Sunday former Ontario Liberal leadership hopeful Kate Graham posted an open letter on her Twitter account which certainly achieved something Ontario’s Liberals have not done too often lately–it got people talking about the Ontario Liberals.
The letter was a public invitation, signed by forty prominent Liberals, including such noteable party grandees as Greg Sorbara, Deb Matthews and Lyn McLeod, for Mike Schreiner, leader of the Ontario Green Party, to throw his hat into the ring to run for the Ontario Liberal leadership.
Kate Graham joins us today to answer these questions and more in a fascinating exclusive interview.
