The stress and strain of creating the The Culham Brief has been great but support from the public has been greater but for this campaign to be successful many more people need to become aware of the facts, tell others and take action.
The media can not be counted on to help grass roots groups and especially when it involves certain politicians who, like Hazel McCallion, are considered off limits when it comes to telling the full extent of their political deeds.
The Culham Brief was written as fast as it could be but still needed to be rushed to make it ready and submitted for the deadline of submissions regarding the OMB review. So the work was not completely made into a computer document. The enclosures were manually pieced together and not yet made into a document page that is easy to print from disk. This is being worked on and some of the news articles are yet to be scanned. We are still looking for help.
None-the-less The Culham Brief is a very
document and has details of the inter workings of Ontario government
politics, shown in a level of detail that is almost never done by the
It is very educational for any one trying to fight for the environment

Questions & Evidence Concerning
Conflict of Interest
OMB File.# PL030312 & PL030441
In the City of Mississauga.
!!!! NOTICE !!!!
This survey / brief is the general media and public version that
not contain all the noted
Some documents are copyrighted to their author.
The full version has only been sent to Minister of the Attorney
This version does not some of the items from Peel Heritage
Complex as well.
You can do something about it!
That can help save the Cawthra Bush & our Democratic rights!
Canadians are sick of politicians/government with its one law for their rich friends and one law for the poor taxpayers. You can help us do something about this by using the time honored methods of grassroots movements. This survey is set up for you to be the judge, with the facts the media and government would never give you access to, to form your opinion with. Fill out the survey and send it in, so we can post on the Internet how many people feel this OMB Appeal reeks of something rotten. A letter to the Premier with a copy to us is very important as the government figures that for everyone who writes, there are at least 400 people who feel the same way!
Tell your friends! By getting people talking about this injustice, we can make things happen.
This brief can be improved so if you know an editor who is willing to help redraft this brief so it is shorter and more effective (and maybe help with the copyright issues), please let them know. If you know someone who has video equipment to make better copies then we can and put it on CD, we can use that help to. We can write the final chapter of this affair and for the benefit of our communities!

Yes [ ] or No [ ]
3). Do you feel that the concerns regarding Conflict of Interest are legitimate, even if they do not fit a very narrow definition (that some may use) of direct financial gain?

Yes [ ] or No [ ]
6). Do you feel that the general history of political interference, questionable moral behaviour by Mississauga's politicians and the confrontational nature of politics in Mississauga shown in this Survey/Brief, is the main reason for Mississaugans lack of success in protecting both the Cawthra Bush and the Northmount community?

RE: Ontario Municipal Board
member Mr. David J. Culham, issues regarding
Dear Sir: Aug. 30, 2004
A key issue noted in this brief is the local hydrology - how the Cawthra wetlands are being drained toward the Canadian National (C.N.) railway corridor, a busy rail corridor often used by GO trains, through a residential area. Mr. Culham has played a key role in aiding the City of Mississauga in covering-up this matter, which would help it escape any blame or legal liability from any damages that could occur by neglecting to fully discover the facts and neglecting to take appropriate actions.
This brief is to make the case that the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) member, Mr. David J. Culham, should not have judged the noted case, that his decision should not stand and the process should therefore be restarted. The basis for this is what can be considered a Conflict of Interest and concerns about Bias. The facts regarding Mr. Culham's past involvement as Councillor for the City of Mississauga, his current and future connection to sites in Mississauga that the City has control over and his conduct as judge of this matter, especially at the OMB Hearing where the public was invited to give testimony, are such that a reasonable lay person made aware of these facts would likely come to the conclusion that there was at least a "reasonable apprehension of bias".
- 1 - ....2
- 2 -
Regarding the question or appearance of Bias, there would be two parts to consider. First, given Mr. Culham 's background before he sat as judge of this matter, was he a satiable choice? Secondly, given the nature of Mr. Culham's behaviour as judge of this matter and the content of his written decision is there any appearance of Bias?
There are significant legal rulings regarding those in Conflict of Interest and/or exhibiting Bias or even the "reasonable apprehension of bias". The law uses the general standard of what a lay person, an uniformed, unBiased member of the community, who becomes informed as to the facts of the matter, would come to believe and members of the FCB & CRRA are perfect examples of that principal. This submission is about what we have come to know, how we came to know it and what we see taking place.
Mr. Culham's appearance as the single judge for this matter was shocking as he is the only OMB member, who, that in the minds of most informed people, would be automatically considered in some kind of Conflict of Interest or likely to have a Bias (even if unconsciously). This is made even more significant as the original OMB member sitting as the judge stepped aside, allowing Mr. Culham, an Ex-City of Mississauga Councillor to take over. This happened after the OMB received the Nov. 27/03 letter regarding the City of Mississauga's "unlawful methods"  being used to keep people out of the Planning & OMB Hearing process. Alarming as that is, the case for him being in a Conflict of Interest that creates a "reasonable apprehension of bias" is clear to most reasonable persons but there are also the examples of what can be considered Bias openly displayed at the Feb. 10/04 Hearing.
Other items noted in the City of Mississauga's "unlawful methods", which the OMB was made aware of, are the noted in that letter. The City has over the years shut the public out of the Planning process by refusing to recognize our ratepayer group the CRRA. Because of the level of harassment by the City towards those who stood up for the Cawthra Bush (which is very environmentally significant ) the community was unable to fully or properly participate in the Planning process when the last Official Plan and Lakeview District Policies (where the Northmount community is located) were in the public process. The City's manipulation of the Freedom Of Information Appeal process, in order to deny those who would wish to be informed about the Cawthra Bush and the Northmount community, is another example of the lengths the City has been willing to go to shut the public out, undermining our Democratic public process. This is something City Councillors helped the Mayor accomplish.
Conflict of Interest in this case has its root in Mr. Culham's many years as a City Councillor for Ward 6. From this position on City Council he worked many years to create his legacy, the monument that bears his name, The "Culham Trail". The "Culham Trail" is an on going construction project that the City (the Mayor) has much control over and could be used as leverage to motivate Mr. Culham. He would know a judgement against the City would anger the Mayor, Hazel McCallion. He would also know she is the kind of person to put his namesake trail on the back burner, maybe even cancel parts so they are not built, or worse, if he displeased her. There are many other sites in Mississauga where he has done tree planting and other community improvements, all of which need ongoing maintenance by the City to keep them from decline, which the Mayor controls. There are other ways that the Mayor can be in control of something Mr. Culham could want, due to her long years in office and power in the business community.

During Mr. Culham's years as a member of the City Urban Forest Management Advisory Committee (UFMAC) a number of very questionable actions and inactions on his part occurred regarding the City's efforts to protect the Cawthra Bush and during the process that created the Cawthra Woods Management plan. He played a key role trying to cover-up the surreptitious draining of the Cawthra wetlands towards a Canadian National railway corridor, 3 sets of tracks through a residential area and new subdivision. Mr. Culham does not come to judge the Northmount community with an open mind or fresh eyes but with years of prior knowledge, past judgements, significant involvement and prejudices. The law is clear and in no uncertain terms states that a person should not be the judge of their own work or cause.
Councillor Culham sat on City Council when the Official Plans for Mississauga were being approved, which are the foundation of the issue before the OMB. Would not a reasonable person believe that Ex-City Councillor Culham would still be inclined to see his vision of how development in Mississauga should occur? As a single OMB member sitting as the judge at an OMB Hearing, that responding as he did to being challenged regarding his Conflict of Interest by threatening to call the police, was this not inappropriate? This behaviour is typical for a City of Mississauga Councillor but totally out of line with the OMB's Code of Conduct.
Other items of concern regarding the OMB Appeal/decision include OMB member Culham's statement about how putting the children's play area right beside the garbage dump is "in a good location"; the Mayor's statement on Jan. 12/04 about how the OMB would approve the matter well before the OMB Hearing or the OMB had heard from the public, (sounded like the fix was in). Lastly, even though the Chair of the OMB was informed there was reason to believe Mr. Culham should not be judging this matter, because of her not responding to the letters that noted this concern or take other actions, effectively gave OMB member Culham permission to use the OMB as his soap box, to be vindictive towards me and unjust to the Northmount community.
There is a deep well from which to draw examples as to why Mr. Culham would be in a Conflict of Interest and likely to display Bias in this case. This brief presents only some of the supporting records/circumstances. One of the most important is that I spoke to him after he suddenly resigned as a City Councillor, he stated he would never be the OMB judge for any matter involving the City of Mississauga. Given the fact that the OMB Code of Conduct was created to avoid even the whiff of scandal and that "Members should not only be unbiased, but also appear to be so.", it is astonishing that he replaced the original OMB Chair to solely judge this matter. It is my observation that Mr. Culham does not pass the smell test regarding this issue and in general. This brief should be regarded as an effort at blowing the whistle on injustice.
The OMB would be wise to fully investigate and profile the character
of Mr. Culham and the

Some items are noted as from the Peel Heritage (Archives) Complex, Brampton. As the photocopies are stamped for research and private study copies will only be given to those in government/politics, who would need to see the items in question to properly consider this matter and not to the media or general public. Concerns about third party personal information and if they there is a copyright on Archives records, currently limit their release. However, one item is such a smoking gun that it must be included, Doc. 66, Councillor Culham's Memorandum to City staff. Parts are blocked out as they are part of the political smear campaign against me, although I can prove that, it would take far more effort and paper work than can be mustered right now. It is a common method to label a person with inflammatory claims about them to avoid dealing with the issues, kill the messenger or calling a person a witch, etc. The Mayor has impresses me as a person who parades herself in public claiming to be the victim of some fictitious injury in order to use the law against those who have done nothing wrong, just tried to be apart of the Democratic process. That she expects those under her to do the same or else!
Some letters or other documents are the same as in the Peel Archives - Culham collection but they were obtained from other sources over the years. Personal information is removed due to legitimate concerns of harassment and retaliation from the City of Mississauga or other involved parties.
Although some of Peter's letters are unsigned, I received them from him that way and have no reason to believe that they are not true copies of the letters sent to Councillor Culham and are the letters refered to by Councillor Culham in his letters. His letters were presented to me as part of our group effort to make public and be involved in government decision making.
Not all of some letters/items are enclosed to reduce the size of this work and its copying costs. The number in () is the number of pages enclosed.
This brief should not be shared with anyone who could or would forward it to anyone who works at the City of Mississauga and especially not to any of the elected officials there. If they want a copy they should make arrangements with me directly.
Original material is not kept at my residence.
