A couple years back she was championing the non-issue of the right to hang clotheslines.
This week Morris was able to get her spin machine to get a headline complete with photo in the Toronto Star:
( http://www.nowtoronto.com/news/story.cfm?content=143559 ) proving that Toronto’s draconian tree bylaw is being applied inconsistently and on a most selective basis Mayor Morris has proven that this is no different here in Aurora under her term of office. Awhile back I commented on the incredible hypocrisy that our mayor and council has shown in applying the town’s tree bylaw: http://christopherwatts.posterous.com/hypocrisy-doesnt-fall-far-from-the-tree There is no doubt in my mind that there are similar infractions that have yet to come to light, but under the non existent transparency and accountability it would most likely require filing an F.O.I. request with the town to be certain. From an Environmental standpoint Aurora has been lacking true leadership since Phyllis joined council. Leadership has to do with direction. Management has to do with the speed, coordination and logistics in going in that direction. WORKERS are no doubt chopping their way through the forest, while MANAGERS are coordinating, making sure the tools are sharp, etc. It takes a LEADER to climb a tree and shout “Wrong forest!” To which Phyllis would no doubt shout back “Be quiet! We’re making progress!”
Talk about barking up the wrong trees
