There’s some naughty news coming out of the City of Trees in western Ontario. London’s mayor is stepping aside following some inappropriate activity with the city’s deputy mayor. Both are married.
Seems the deputy might opt for seclusion from city hall as well until both politicians sort things out with the individual families.
Less news worthy closer to home decades ago there was the water pitcher throwing incident with water flying across a council table, provoked by a glass of water being thrown at a councillor by a fellow councillor or were they called aldermen back then. Then there a was the case of a member of council breaking into a home, stealing a shot-gun and scaring the heck out of his estranged wife by firing a blast into the ceiling of the residence where she had been staying.
Since first moving here in 1960 and reporting the news radio, TV and newspaper for decades, one doesn’t recall any romantic wink, wink, nudge, nudge around Midland’s council table. The occasional rip roaring angry loud voice, naughty word and single finger sign gesture have popped up on a number of occasions but they seemed well rationed.
Even the media got singled out a few times by a politician or two accusing the press of being dishonest and misquoting them. Meanwhile these cannot be the happiest of times in London, popular Western Fair or not!
