|Bos, Neil||Maybe||I've been a student of the Parliamentary process, rules, protocols and tradition for more than 30 years, and I look forward to my time on Hamilton city council.
When I was on council at the Township of Flamborough, I always treated my colleagues as the mature, sincere, hard-working and constructive councillors they were, and they did the same for me.
My character won't change overnight. I will be respectful, generally speaking. But if somebody behaves in a manner that is hurtful, bullying and ignorant, you will come to hear them say, when there is a crass comment, "Neil's up!" Meaning: sparks are going to fly!
|Gaspar, Brian||Yes||Mayor and councillors have been chosen by their communities they serve as role models to the communities. They consist of different ethnic backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs. As representatives of our communities, they should act in a professional manner because they are our leaders. They need exemplify care in how they present themselves. These men and woman have been chosen because they will fight for what their community believes in and their best interests. There are times that the frustration causes some erratical behaviour but this is politics as long as we are not swinging microphones, sticks throwing or repetitively getting peeped this is politics. Perhaps come up with a merit plan that awards individuals for good behaviour.|
