Sue-Ann Levy calls Hurricane Hazel McCallion a dictator, yogurt
Christopher Hume and Sue-Ann Levy aren’t usually on the same side of municipal issues—but they are united in their criticism of Hazel McCallion. Both columnists do a number on the long-serving Mississauga mayor in their respective spaces, taking McCallion to task in the wake of a judge’s 386-page report on her misconduct, released earlier this week. Hume says McCallion “squelched a generation of leadership,” while Levy suggest McCallion ruled like a dictator and compares her to, um, yogurt (both politicians and dairy products have an expiration date, you see). At the core of their respective criticisms isn’t just the way she’s run Mississauga—although that’s certainly a large part of it—but how she reacted to Monday’s news: with a rhetorical shrug and a non-apology. Of course, that kind of arrogance might be a prerequisite to serving as mayor for three decades.
