Welcome to the twilight zone

Instead of actually releasing the 400 City Hall Square audit, we get a new media protocol.

What of our elected representatives? Their silence on issues such as this is telling.

With regard to the audits being stalled by the City, we might as well forget about them. By the time they are released they'll be so washed and spun dry as to be devoid of any value.

The real battle facing citizens will be over the creation and appointment of the City's Auditor General. First we must demand that this position be created before the next election. Second, we must be vigilant in ensuring that when this position is created it is truly an independent auditor, free of political control and influence.

This situation fits in nicely with the City's new "We Can" campaign. Council seems to be of the belief that "we can do anything we want and get away with it".

Positive thinking, Windsor style.
