Low Budget Humour

shane_jolleyReaders who are slightly older than I may remember a TV show from the ‘70s called The Gong Show. It was a celebrity variety show complete with bad (sometimes crass) humour, silly stunts, a jeering, hooting audience and as with all bad comedy, plenty of contrived applause.

New Meeting Structure Just Isn't Working

MeBWmediaBack in December I raised some concerns about the proposed revisions to the Procedural Bylaw which outlined how Meaford council meetings would be conducted for the coming term.


My feeling was that overall the document was a very good one that was filled with some positive changes, however my concerns at the time focused on the new 3 o'clock start time for the monthly Committee of the Whole meetings, and the elimination of public question period from the council agenda.

What Should Really Be Asked About Blogger Issue


My poor computer was practically smoking today with the sudden burst of email that arrived after an article in the Sun Times informed readers that the municipality has backed off on its pledge to name the anonymous blogger who authored a website that was highly critical of Meaford Mayor Francis Richardson and some members of staff during the recent municipal election campaign.


Many of the comments from readers suggested that residents should band together and demand that the municipality reveal the name of the blogger now that they have confirmed the identity.
