Watson, Chiarelli Make New York Times

newyorktimes

Must be a slow news day in New York.

If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere …

It’s Hockey Night in Manhattan with two of our favourite politicians Mayor Jim Watson and College Councillor Rick Chiarelli starring in a New York Times article on hockey madness in Canada.

Apparently Watson is so enthralled by his place in the Times that he is thinking of running for office in Gotham in 2017.

Nussbaum’s Stock Rises

The great Sheridan takes on the issue of conflict of interest in reference to the post Declare A Conflict of Interest:

This is very frustrating, especially the damage it will do to the already jaded youth vote.

David Miller (former Toronto mayor who voted in this type of legislation) said it best: “When you allow corporate donations, what you are allowing is someone who is better off and who controls a significant resource to have far more impact on who gets elected.”

Get Out Of The Meeting, Councillor

This comment is so good from Bulldog contributor Ron Benn that it deserves better play.

Benn is referring to the Bulldog post, Declare A Conflict Of Interest.

So here it is:

To finish the thought, because we know how some elected officials like to parse ideas that they are not in favour of, once a conflict of interest is declared due to having received a contribution to any of their election campaigns, ever, not just the most recent one, the councillor MUST recuse themselves from the meeting, by getting up and leaving.

Watson Should Tackle Conflict Of Interest

Watson

Watson

Certainly Mayor Jim Watson doesn’t want to be accused of conflict of interest.

Watson has been a major proponent of ethical government, enacting much legislation on the issue.

But an area of his penchant for ethics has escaped his acute sense of right and wrong.

And that’s conflict of interest. We’re sure the mayor does not want to be accused of conflict of interest because he might vote on an issue that affects one of his campaign contributors. Because that would raise some serious ethical questions for himself and his councillors.

Declare A Conflict Of Interest

The motion at Ottawa City Councillor Wednesday to ask for jurisdiction from the province to deal with corporate and union donations lost 19-5. Not even close.

Councillors increasingly talk of getting more participation in municipal elections and then cynically defeat a move that would lead to limiting the ability of corporations and unions to have undue influence over the electoral process.

Corporations and unions don’t vote. People do.
