Pity Party



What are we to make of the 'pity party' as painted in the article ‘Inspiring people to take action’ where Mayor Sendzik intimated that Niagara Citizens are such  a bunch of low life buffoons that they call our political leaders ugly names simply because they are political leaders?

Mayor Sendzik’s comments become extraordinary and telling when he fails to mention the cause of some of the hatred. His one sided lament rings hollow when we know why some people are over-reacting.

You need thick skin if you have political aspirations.
But if you can tolerate the verbal abuse from some people who “feel they can call you whatever they want,” local mayors say it’s a way to work towards positive changes in the community.
“The amount of people that can shout at you, that can poke at you, that can get at you is much more. It’s greater than it ever has been,” said St. Catharines Mayor Walter Sendzik.
Using social media, people have called him “a moron, I’ve been called an a--hole, I’ve been called dumb” and much worse, he said.
“Those are just the kind words,” he told about 36 members of the Leadership Niagara program during a meeting last Friday at Brock University.
“My kids get to read it so its kind of discouraging as a parent to see what other people in the community feel they have a right to call you. People feel they can call you whatever they want,” he said, adding he usually mutes the most offensive posts.
“You develop a veneer — a thick skin — to deal with it, but that’s the bad side of being in politics.”

“Those are just the kind words,” he told about 36 members of the Leadership Niagara program during a meeting last Friday at Brock University. Did anyone bother to ask what the 'Pity Party' just what they thought the 'Niagara Buffoons' where reacting too?

Perhaps Mayor Senszik could explain his muting of Mr. And Mrs Camilleri's years long cry for help regarding the flooding of their property. A couple who never once disparaged the Mayor even while being forced to flee their decades-long home.

Then again he could explain his broken promise to help his St. Catharines Citizen Willie Wakulich who was being viciously and improperly attacked by the NPCA. Though the Mayor decided to throw Mr. Wakulich under the NPCA corruption-laden- bus Mr. Wakulich never called the mayor by any derogatory name.

Then you have Mayor 'Tax & Spend' Augustyn who claims that HE is being bullied because people are demanding answers as to how their hard earned taxpayer dollars are spent.

It could be just as easily said that it is the Citizen who must develop a veneer — a thick skin — to deal with bad side of politics.”

The Cunning Mr. Litigious



That’s right blame the media


The CAO of the Niagara Regional Government, Carmen D `Angelo known in some circles as the violent Mr. Litigious who tried to cover his theft of media notes and equipment, without color of right, by repeatedly classifying ‘News Alert Niagara’ as merely a BLOG. 

Mr. Litigious earned the title because he threatened Haskell with litigation and violent because he physically assaulted Haskell and made false accusations. 

It is our pleasure to inform the violent Mr. Litigious that ‘News Alert Niagara’ has surpassed Two Hundred and Twenty-Seven Thousand Page-views (227K)  averaging over Fifteen Thousand Page-views (15K) per Article of direct News and Information. 

 It could also be that Mr. Litigious is unaware of decades-long ‘The Mirror online’ , which switched from old fashioned newsprint in 2006.

Mr. Litigious, the Chair and every Regional Councilor knows Media Person Preston Haskell of ‘News Alert Niagara’ and The Mirror online’ yet Mr. Litigious ordered the notes and equipment to be stolen without color of right!


Why couldn't these brainiacs simply remove the notes-recorder from the Chamber as they did with the scarf, hat, coat, cell phone and camera until they could determine the situation
 

A question arises as to why Mr. Litigious et al didn’t turn the notes-recorder over to the police immediately when the police were summoned and attended? What was Mr. Litigious et al doing with the stolen notes-recorder for several days?

Mr. Litigious et al are hanging their hat on a known liar who said he found the notes-recorder under a hat. Did the Liar notice if the cell-phone was recording? Did the Liar notice if the Camera was recording? 

This disgusting hat lie will be addressed after the Police and Ombudsman reports are released in February, 2018.

A Study in Elected Corruption (Update #5)


This study is the culmination of years of observation and through the effort of many organizations and a small army of dedicated Citizens in the face of absolute secrecy.

Study of the Niagara Peninsula Corruption Authority

Following Mr. Ed Smith’s pointed presentation at the (45:00 Minute Mark) to the NPCA Board of Directors meeting September 20, 2017 the board members sat in sullen silence without so much as asking Smith a single question.


As an example Smith picked his ‘smallest case’ concerning the overcharge of ($800.00) for a so-called ‘Freedom of Information’ (FOI) request.

Expanding on Mr. Smith’s example we offer some of the outrageous behavior foisted on innocent Niagara Citizens at the hands of the Niagara Peninsula Corruption Authority all with the approval of the NPCA Board of Directors.

The above members of the NPCA Board of Directors has authorized some of the most unbelievable attacks of private property and home owners including ‘A Travesty of Justice’, ‘Smoking Gun’ and many more.

Most egregious is the NPCA’s corrupt practice of charging private property owners and even ‘judge shopping’ over so-called environmental transgressions, while ignoring the same transgressions perpetrated by developers and friends. Thundering waters being the most significant example! 

The same NPCA Board Members allowed their staff to promote their ‘Bovine Waste’ of ‘Bio-diversity off-setting’ scheme in a specious effort to destroy The ‘Thundering Waters’ Provincially Significant Wetlands slough forest in favor of development.

Never in the history of Canada have so many been deceived by so few!

Our present system breeds corruption. We need to be able to hold all politicians accountable for their actions, by way of suing them personally, of their own money. It would not stop all corruption, but at least it would drop the level of corruption we are witnessing in today's society. The democracy we have right now has no deterrent built into the system to stop corruption. If we sue a politician, it costs us tens of thousands of dollars to hire a lawyer. It costs the politician nothing, he gets to use our tax dollars to pay for his lawyer. If we win, the monies we receive comes from the taxpayers too. If we lose, we must pay the politicians legal fees too. No wonder few people sue these days, it's unaffordable for most people and the risk is too high. Our inaction gives our politicians a sense of increased power and entitlement to continue with 'their ways'. I believe this is why corruption has reached an all time high. Your thoughts?

In the mid 1800's, Sir John Dalberg-Acton, 8th Baronet likely said it best "Power Corrupts and absolute Power Corrupts absolutely....." and to this day, nothing has changed. I find that all Conservation Authorities have too much power not just the NPCA - just some are a little more dishonest than others...Dick Brady

$Millions here $Millions there



Multi $Millions everywhere and only taxpayers to foot the bill!
When does the taxpayer hear about it?
 
 KINGDOM CONSTRUCTION LIMITED v. REGIONAL MUNICIPALITY OF NIAGARA



17      The termination of an agreement is a very serious matter. It is the cessation of a legal relationship between two parties which most often leads to costly legal actions, such as this one, in order to settle the differences between them. A notice, therefore, which is the commencement of the termination procedure must be one which brings home to the party to be charged the purpose thereof so that it may be said that there was no doubt that the defendant realized the serious consequences of his inaction. The letter of April 13 is not such a notice. No proper notice having been given to the defendant, it follows that the 90-day period never began to run and, therefore, the plaintiff's termination was a wrongful one.
Disposition
[151]      On the basis of the foregoing, judgment shall issue requiring the defendant Region to pay to the plaintiff Kingdom damages in the sum of $2,100,000 plus HST thereon, totalling in all the sum of $2,373,000, being the quantification of the plaintiff’s damages agreed to by the parties.
            Costs
[152]      The parties are encouraged to agree upon costs. If they are unable to do so, the plaintiff may make written submissions as to costs within twenty-one (21) days of the release of these Reasons for Judgment. The defendant has fourteen (14) days after receipt of the plaintiff’s submissions to respond. All such written submissions shall not exceed five (5) double-spaced pages, exclusive of Costs Outlines or Bills of Costs, Offers to Settle and Authorities, and are to be forwarded to me at my chambers at 85 Frederick Street, 7th Floor, Kitchener, Ontario N2H 0A7.  If no submissions are received within this timeframe, the parties will be deemed to have settled the issue of costs as between themselves.
