The Theatre of City Council
Some context to any out-of-towners wanting to know about this curious cartoon...
A week ago I wrote about the entertainment aspect of legislative debate that is essential to liven up the tediousness of the democratic process. To those who earnestly express their outrage against humorous political ads or forceful blows during question period, I say, lighten up.
So Hamilton City Council was the stage this week for a split second of action that made some headlines in the Hamilton Spectator. Events turned sour after Councillor Bob Bratina was rambling on about something during council proceedings when Mayor Eisenberger interjected to speed things up. The resulting hissy fit from the smooth talking morning man / city representative was beautifully captured on film.
It reminds me of my 5 year when she needs to clean up her crayons upon being told it's nap time. Seeing it all unfold with a grown man... now that's entertainment.
