The Mayor Fontana Dilema


The fact that Mayor Fontana has the legal right to not have to step down does not negate the negative impact he is having on the city of London. He would likely be the first to tell us that he went into politics to “serve the fine people of London”, however, in refusing to step aside until the allegations against him are dealt with in the courts , makes it very hard to see who he is serving other than himself. The honourable, the sacrificing, serving thing to do is to move out of the harm of city.

The fact that law doesn’t require Mayor Fontana to step aside shines a very bright light on the archaic nature of our governing systems born at a time of the royals who lauded their power over the disenfranchised peasants, and the stench of those paternal times of being above accountability still lingers in the air today.

(Mayor Fontana looking in the wrong direction.)

The Mayor is only one man, who of course has chosen to vest his interest in his own prestige, position and pay. But we, the hundreds of thousands of Londoners, what of our interests? When will get our Democracy, our say and our right to accountability? If we have no say, then there is still no Democracy for us. The Mayor has made evidence of that.

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen
