A censure that was placed on Adjala-Tosorontio Mayor Floyd Pinto by the majority of council earlier this year, after he was alleged to have broken council’s code of conduct for comments he made on social media and in other settings, has been repealed.

    Same old story.
    I have lived in the area since 2000 and over the last 8 plus years there has been so much strife within council. What I see as a citizen are a bunch of self absorbed councilors arguing amongst themselves, again. I don’t profess to know what is going on this time, but it seems a continuation of the previous term. If we are back to considering litigation, calling the OPP like before, we should just start over. We should supply mirrors so council can reflect on themselves. The optics are terrible, it’s bloody embarrassing. Something needs to change.
