Stupid is as Stupid Does
Well, the Mayor of Halifax – Peter Kelly- has done it again. Recently he was in the news for absent-mindedly picking up a 9mm bullet on a daily walk and trying to get through airport security with it in his briefcase. Now, he has written a memo (and has been accused of leaking it to the media) to his councilors, regarding unsubstantiated claims of certain councilors abuse of alcohol and driving under the influence.
Has this man been swimming in Halifax Harbour once to often? Is sewer sludge starting to eat away at his brain? Mr. Kelly, there is such a thing as having “in camera” discussions with council, or having a private meeting with each one. You don’t start firing memos around, blasting everyone without some thought before hand. If this is an ongoing problem, then you single out the offender and either threaten them with sanction or criminal action. You don’t tar and feather everyone in public; Especially when you say that you have “heard complaints”, but there is nothing specific.
I think Mayor Kelly might have been hit in the head with a “floatable” on one of his swims. If it does exist, this is a serious issue and has to be handled in a serious manner. Come on.
Until then, I remain,
A Sour Kraut
