Sept. 6/2000 - Bob Hunter from CITY - TV comes out to cover the Cawthra Bush being declared at Provincially Significant Wetland Complex, story and City staff show up to harass & intimidate us!
That is right the City strikes BACK!
The interview went very well and this was the third time City TV has covered the Cawthra Bush story.
City TV - 57
John Lohuis, Director of Recreation
and Parks, City of Mississauga;
1 minute and 33 seconds.
Before the City TV crew showed up, a man drives and started to act very strangely. The picture below shows him parking in the entrance way of a parking lot, requiring the City TV van to drive around him to enter. This person with unnaturally over blown muscles was wearing a City of Mississauga tee shirt but refused to identify himself or even say if he is on duty and was heard to yell a slanderous insult at me! To name a little of what he did that day. Then Sept. 13, I drop into the Cawthra Community Centre and the next thing I know he is calling the cops on me and will not say why! His superior informs the police that a City memo is the reason behind his unprofessional behaviour !!!!
There will be more follow up to this as City staff are taking this to dangerous level of conformation. It would appear that this latest victory has City Hall very upset and they do not want to suffer my presence any longer. Our Mayor told the City Freedom of Information Co-ordinator to stop me from getting City records that were shared with taxpayers. The FOI Co-ordinator did so by falsifying records to serve the Mayor and to hell with Canadian law! This latest event is part of a plan to keep me off City property and out of the Cawthra Bush. My efforts have found the rare and threatened species at Cawthra and the City hates me for it. It is getting to the point where the City doesn't care how they stop me, legal or other wise.
WARNING !!!!! - When you talk to City staff do not tell them you are with a group that trying to save the Cawthra Bush or not agreeing with the City or its politicians. Even if the conversation appears to have been a normal one, there is no telling what can be written by City staff afterwards. City staff will write false reports to discredit both the members of our group and their efforts.
Why would the City be upset that the Cawthra Bush is declared a Provincially Significant Wetland Complex?
A). This is Hazel's town and she hates it when an another level of government is putting their fingers into her pie. The significance's of the word provincial in "Provincially Significant Wetland Complex" means the province now has an interest and say in what can or can not be done in or around the Cawthra Bush.
City's plans call for a dry park, not a wetlands and wetlands take more
effort to keep a wetland. If the public didn't fight so hard for
a wetlands evaluation, petition and letters, it would never been done.
In the words of David Culham, ex-City Councillor, to me about the
The City is now in the embarrassing position of the public being in the
right (especially Mr. Barber), and the City being in the wrong, AGAIN.
The Mayor has made it known that she is very concerned about what I say
when I go to the local schools (the facts madam, nothing but the facts).
It would be one of her main political goals to create a reason to use,
to keep me out of the local schools.
