Ad-Met mayor calls in OPP for resident videotaping public meeting

At an Adelaide-Metcalfe council meeting, the mayor calls in the OPP, exercising his “power of Authority” to remove the videographer from a public/open meeting. the township did not have a bylaw that prohibited videotaping. At a previous meeting the council had discussed videotaping the meeting themselves, or asking videographers to write a letter of intent to council before a meeting that they want to tape. But no discussion was made this day. The mayor ambushed with calling the cops – no alternatives.

Some democracy that is… People- don’t let your democratically elected council run your township like a dictatorship!
