if you are going to BLOG a candidate, let them BLOG us to, to fair.
*****************************
There are two things that need to be mentioned and Mr. Streward hates to hear, no matter how true they are. That he works at a “Newspaper” that is often called the “Missing News” and that Mississauga’s really miss the way he used to report the News - years ago.

The key elements to the age of the CURRENT Mayor issue is how much it would cost to hold a by-election any time between now and the end of the 4 year term for the next Mayor. City hall has told me it is $1,000,000.00!!! And Mr. Streward was told that a few times. He was also told many times that she need not die, she could lose her mind and he has been repeatedly given many examples of how she loses it and even thinks there is a “coup” out to get her.

Is it not reasonable to ask for a full doctors report about this 85 year old candidate's physical and mental state before we invest a vote in her? By the way - the take home pay for Mississauga's politicians is about 1/2 a million dollars for their term! Also there is the matter of her lack of a platform does that not say no vision by a person of her age? I am out going door to door, why is Hazel not up to that? Maybe because certain persons in the media do her work for her?

Further more, all the people I have talked agree 85 is too old and they are not willing to gamble on her and why does she want to stay in office anyways? If she wants to be remembered and have a good legacy then she should do as other leaders do, works of charity etc., staying in power as she is just an act of ego. When people know the facts they see the wisdom of putting Betsy out to pasture - after all how does it serve Mississauga to have a Mayor die in office? Unless it is just another Hazel on centre stage performance that we are to applaud to.

Remember history we just us and it will not have it eyes clouded by a cult personally that over shadows the truly great issues in this election.

This election is like a horse race and we are being asked to bet on the oldest horse.
And if she loses, if she crashes and burns in any way, we all pay. How much day care will $1,000,000.00 buy?

So get with it John - get the whole story out - even if it means people will ask why did you not tells us this before. Mississauga deserved better - don’t we?

John, you wrote:

"Barber, of course, is cast as Sisyphus, forced to roll the rock up the mountain eternally, check to see if the Queen is still sitting on her throne and then watch the rock roll down before he starts his uphill struggle all over again."

That's the thing I respect about Don Barber. Really. He knows he can't win against The Hazel or The Evil Empire.

His struggle is every bit as futile and unrewarding as those of Sisyphus (dead-on call casting Barber as Sisyphus, John).

He's fighting a fight he can't win and yet he's fighting and Will Not Give Up. Odds of Zero, Barber's got. They've even laid charges on him.

He Will Not Bow Down to Them. They can twist and wrench his fingers back but he Will Not Bow Down to The Evil Empire.

(Oops. Make that Hypocritical Evil Empire.)

"Sisyphus" defines himself not in winning --but in his perpetual struggle against a soulless utterly unaccountable corporation --soulless, John, bleak and soulless.

His cause is hopeless hopeless hopeless --and yet Barber will.

(Yes. I meant to end my sentence with "will")

Signed,
The Mississauga Muse
