Mary Fragedakis voting early. A conflict of interest?

March 11, 2014

Agnes Macphail’s annual Public Speaking Contest was held at the East York Civic Centre this year. Where young students get an opportunity to try out their oratory stills, and win inkjet certificates acknowledging their participation. On the judging list this year was none other than Ward 29 Councillor Mary Fragedakis.

Students in grades 6, 7, and 8 headed down to the Davidson Council Chambers at the East York Civic Centre and expressed their right to stand on a soap box. Yet when Mary Fragedakis is appointed Judge Dredd over the proceedings one can hardly expect a fair debate.

Was it any wonder out of the boatloads of students speaking that day, Councillor Fragedakis picked a politically biased Ford bashing speech about the mayor’s private life as the winner? Of all of the speeches Mary Fragedakis had to judge that day, how many other students were ignored for the grand prize based solely on Councillor Fragedakis’ hatred against accountable government?

The argument that every single minute of politician’s private life is of utmost importance for media scrutiny, only ever seems to count with fiscal conservatives who rattle Councillor Fragedakis’ crony quo. When is the last time the front covers of newspapers were splash daily with lefty’s indiscretions? For some short examples: MPP George Smitherman’s five year addiction to narcotic party drugs, Jack Layton cheating on his wife in a brothel that hired underage Asian prostitutes, or Councillor Paul Ainslie driving drunk.

At least Ford still gets up in the morning, goes to his job everyday and works for the taxpaying Torontonian… which is more then all the other socialist councillors, the chief of police or the deputy mayor could ever pretend to promise. $1.2 million dollars later with a once secret Toronto Police Service Cessna spy plane, and 24/7 surveillance… all Bill Blair or Robyn Doolittle could prove after months was that Rob Ford drank a 1/2 bottle of vodka in a dark park late at night and pissed on a tree. Whoopty Freakin’ Doo!

    As usual, an extremely poorly written piece of shit. Does anyone at Ward News have any grasp at all of grammar, language and tenses? A QUALIFIED EDITOR is SORELY MISSING!
    Here is a hint: QUIT WHILE YOU’RE BEHIND.
