Robust management that leads to more effective implementation of the chosen interventions, better service delivery, and, ultimately, better outcomes and enhancements associated with amenities such as the community centre, beaches, arena, soccer fields, baseball fields, tennis courts, parks and trails (including the county trail that runs through the heart of our community).

    I don’t see any reference to the Integrity Commissioner’s claim that Louis committed “the most egregious disclosure of confidential information I have ever encountered in nine years serving as an integrity commissioner.”

    I noted the comment that he does not own nor have ANY stake in any commercial property in Carleton Place so with all due respect who owns the Olympia and the 3 other addresses related and why did Louis act as the rental agent for the properties if he has no stake nor interest?

    Shocking that the integrity issues continue to arise. The Privacy commissioner’s claim is a hugely critical evaluation of the Mayor’s integrity level.

    How could anyone vote for this man after everything he has done?

    It baffles me why no one actually reads the final conclusions regarding the current council and the integrity commissioner investigations. All of the complaints in the last four years have been dismissed except two. One was against Councillor Black and one was against the Mayor.

    There are at least 100 people who know the truth about the complaint against the mayor and the so called “most egregious disclosure” comment. A woman by the name of Ms. McQueen asked the integrity commissioner directly in front of a packed house if there was actually any physical evidence or proof regarding the complaint against the mayor. The integrity commissioner said “no” there was “no proof” except the word of a dishonoured elected official from years gone by.

    And let’s call this whole integrity commissioner kangaroo stuff by its rightful name:

    The Ontario Municipal Act, 2001 provides that the “Code of Conduct” is a ‘by-law’ that cannot provide that a member who contravenes the code of conduct is guilty of any criminal offence. A violation of any code of conduct is not an “offence” under the law.

    On the other hand, the “Criminal Code” involves matters of conduct that cause harm to others and is considered to be serious enough to warrant the stigma of a criminal record and punishments that can demand confinement, restraining orders, probation, fines, and public apologies.

    In other words:

    A code of conduct violation “is not“ a violation of the law and is not deemed a crime.

    For example: The mayor’s code of conduct violation was an infringement of a set of rules set out in the code of conduct, not a violation of the criminal code or law.

    A criminal code violation “is“ a criminal act that is deemed a crime.

    For example: Councillor Black’s physical assault against the mayor last February was a criminal code violation or a ‘criminal act’ that was deemed a crime by Canadian law.
