Re: June 4, 2013 Council Agenda (Craig’s 3-16)

The pdf version of the full agenda package is at:

An Html version is at:

I have no particular concerns about any agenda item. (That’s a first.)

There are however a few items of interest.

Agenda item 8.5 MLEO06-2013 Power of Entry

The staff recommendation is:

“Pass By-Law as presented to allow Officers to perform their lawful duty to enter and to inspect in order to confirm or deny any alleged infraction of Town by-laws.”

I believe this by-law is necessary. I hope the privilege of entry will not be abused or used for ulterior or improper purpose. No power of entry by-law can permit fishing trips. You need reasonable grounds to go on a property.

Agenda item 7.2 3:00 pm Victoria Serda, Community Foundation Grey Bruce-Eva Leflar Memorial Tree Planting Grant

Everyone wants money from the treasury. Council needs to be reminded that the money in the treasury is not theirs. It belongs to the residents.

Council should respond accordingly.

Closed session agenda item 4.5 Litigation or potential litigation, including matters before administrative tribunals, affecting the municipality or local board AND Advice that is subject to solicitor client privilege, including communications necessary for that purpose (Litigation Update)

On November 20, 2012 a resolution was passed banning me from town hall property. The pretext for the ban was the false allegations that I had commenced legal proceedings (plural) against the town and that I had deliberately and willfully tried to record a closed session.

I immediately applied to the superior court of justice to have the illegal resolution quashed.

On May 23rd Judge Clayton Conlan of the Superior Court of Justice issued an order that I am to be permitted to attend council meetings again.  So I will attend the June 4 council meeting.

I expect the court order is at least part of the “litigation update” closed agenda item.

    Good job Craig….but what kind of response can we expect from Council or their hopeless non-worthy Leader. We were hoping that with a clean slate @ last Election we would have a contributing group that could think “outside the box”….but with the exception of one or perhaps 2…..they don’t even know that there IS a box. GMM.

    P.S….matter of fact….they seem to relate the “Box” to staff and think they can go there and pull out the “Answer”……when in H– are we ever going to get some Leadership.

    P.P.S…..the Airport issue is not just a joke…’s a tragedy!!
