It's incredible that he's still on council after this latest fiasco.

This incident, and the one where he tried to influence a police officer by using his status as councilor, are reminiscent of the old-school, smoky back room, wheelin' and dealin' dirty politics of the not-so-good old days.

In a modern city where citizens expect transparent, honest and accountable government, he's a throwback, and a lying one to boot. No, I'm not afraid to use the word "lying". As you wrote, he said, "I've had no conversations at all about this application with my colleagues."

That was a lie, plain and simple.

Mitchell should apologize to council, and more importantly, he should apologize to the citizens of Hamilton. And then he should resign.
