Gallery of Weasels……….AW(And certainly, not AL)

A Gallery of Weasels..Welcome to Woodstocks Gallery Project

So council reversed its decision of last month and is now fast-tracking the feasibility study for the art gallery. For those of you who came late to the party, His Specialness had more pressing matters to attend to so he missed last months meeting.

He didn’t approve of the way council voted on the gallery study in his absence so he pulled some quasi-legal strings (probably threatened to hold his breath ’till he turned blue) and had the vote held again. This time he showed up and tipped the scales in favour of rushing the process for his buddies on the gallery committee.

In future maybe they should just let him phone in his vote and save us all the fuss and bother of watching him weasel around to get what he wants.We’re talking about a highly questionable project with a projected budget of 5.8 Million Dollars here folks.

Why are they in such a hurry? Why are they not following established procedures? What are they hoping we won’t notice, other than the obvious fact that this monument to the self-importance of a few local art fanciers is a complete waste of our tax dollars?

It’s the golf course all over again. His Wonderfulness is trying to work the system to slide goodies to his buddies, at our expense. He has the support of the usual suspects; Lauder, Talbot and Gerrie. Remember those names in 2010 and vote for someone else. We need more dead cats.

    It is a bad idea that he would make this happen.I am not from Woodstock-London, but I would appeal to the sensibilities of the city residents and your ward representatives.Did he appoint the board of the gallery? Many mayors have the ability to appoint all board of directors. These appointments are as a generalization favours for debts incurred.Did those mayoral appointees support him politically or financially for his election?
    It looks very non-democratic.I question his ethical standards.

    In response to your direct questions:

    1 yes
    2 yes

    You question his ethical standards???? In order to question them you would first have to find them.

    Come to think of it that first yes could be incorrect. The “Friends of the Gallery” may be a local self-appointed lobby group as opposed to an appointed committee. I’ll have to check. They certainly supported the mayor in his election campaign though. Hell, for 5.8 Million I might have supported him. 🙂

    How much more precision would you like? Should we include a postal code??

    Why are we paying for six councilors when Mayor Harding get’s his way by hook or by crook anyway? He must have been a Puppet master at one time as Talbot/Lauder and Gerrie can’t say NO and have their hand up immediately when directed do so. Mr. Sobeski must still be a puppet in training as he isn’t too consistent yet. Ms. Tait and Mr. Northcott are going to cost us a WSIB claim for stress related problems for Mayor Harding as they never follow his Lordship’s orders. We might as well save a few bucks and just let his Royal Highness, Ms.Gartshore and Paul Bryan-Pulham run the show as they do it the way THEY want now anyway. Just another soul living in Harding’s DICTATORSHIP

    It’s not a dictatorship. Harding would just be a pathetic joke without the willing support of at least three councillors. This is a group effort.

    “So it would be no fun without his puppets eh.”

    Oh no. It would be great fun without his puppets. He couldn’t do any damage without them. He’d just be a performing seal, comic relief until the next election when we could elect a real mayor.

    Get rid of either Talbot, Lauder or Gerrie and he’s toast. They are the ones that enable him. Why is anyone’s guess. I lean toward the dumb, dumber and crooked theory myself.

    The current recall poll supports the theory. 🙂
