I'm with Phyllis on this one, as I'm sure you would expect I would be.

Why you choose to go after Phyllis for answering an honest question with an honest answer is beyond me when you know that there are much bigger fish to fry, including the investigation now underway at council related to the past mayor allegedly requesting and receiving, without Council's knowledge and with out the knowledge of residents calling the town, the phone logs of the past council on a monthly basis for an extended period of time from September 2004 onwards. One has to wonder if he was tracking who Phyllis and Nigel Kean were talking to and for how long, in the lead up to the election. Given that I was informed by the Town Clerk that Mr. Jones apparently broke the town's own policies as did a senior town administrator (yet to be named) and knowing that Mr. Jones is now trying to win the nomination of the federal Liberal seat the ethical and potentially legal implications of a story like that appear to me to be far more newsworthy. You might even call the story Aurora's (Water Restricted) Watergate or something even more clever than that.

In any case I would not miss your blog for the world Joan, no matter what.
