It has already been predicted that the use of an IC is turning into a weapon to get rid of people who are not willing to 'go along to get along' or to sell out their morals to people not acting in the best interest of the public.
We demand accountability and transparency from our elected leaders but what we usually get is a disgusting load of contempt.
Still, we are extremely fortunate to have video of our government in action. Video brings us a degree of transparency as never before.
Perhaps there has never before been such an example of transparency as the City of Niagara Falls, Ontario Council Meeting held on June 13, 2017.
At the 3:14 minute mark transparency starts to become abundantly clear how the use of an IC is used as a weapon against anyone who threatens to poke a stick into the spokes of the government authority's 'Gravy Train'.
Folks, after watching the video you will find no evidence of leaking closed session information let alone pointing blame directly to Councilor Carolynn Ioannoni!
However, not to be denied in their spurious attempt to 'get Ioannoni' the cabal of conspirators each took turns in reading from prepared copy supporting yet another two-bit lawyer's condemnation, without evidence, of one of their own fellow councilors.
With no proof what-so-ever, Councilor Kerrio stood in place to move that Councilor Ioannini apologize to council, to staff and to the public.
Kerrio also moved that Ioannoni be removed from all boards and committees including Hydro.
Kerrio went on to move that the Ontario Government should be asked that the Municipal act be changed so that Ioannoni could be removed from office.
Kerrio made six motions against Ioannoni predicated on the so-called Integrity Commissioner's statement that "I find, on a balance of possibilities, that Councillor Carolynn Ioannoni shared highly sensitive and confidential personnel information..." ! A balance of possibilities is neither evidence nor proof!
Since everything to do with this situation is secret, even from the targeted victim, it is evident that the Integrity Commissioner scheme is definitely more akin to the infamous Witchcraft Trials.
Once again the disgusting antics of our elected officials demonstrates pure contempt for the Citizen!
Question: Where does INTEGRITY stand on trying to destroy the Citizen's chosen representative with no evidence or proof of wrongdoing?
