The following was reported in this weeks Auroran.
Howard Winkler, Lawyer for Ms Morris indicated that the only amendment was to make it clear the plaintiff was Ms. Morris.
Translation?: Taxpayers are still funding the lawsuit that she will personally benefit.
Wendy Gaertner stated: “the scuttlebutt was not off-base” when asked whether Councillor knew whether they were voting on a lawsuit as rumoured. She went on to say “we didn’t know what that something would be, in fact I found out what that something would be via the newspaper.“
Translation?: Councillors did not discuss a lawsuit behind closed doors. Morris took the motion from Council and decided on the lawsuit herself. With her eligible to win $6,000,000 personally.
Makes one wonder if Councillors voted for other things over the years when they didn’t know what that “something” would be.
Given the closeness of the votes for Granger and Wilson — wonder how they feel towards Phyllis these days. Did her personal lawsuit cost them re-election? This lawsuit will also follow them in any future attempt to seek re-election.
