Khaled Iwamura chats to Mayor Patrick Brown about the “dysfunctional” Brampton city council and more.

Questions asked to Mayor Patrick Brown:

  • Brampton residents have called this council “dysfunctional”.
  • They’ve missed 6 and you’ve missed 4. On the recent missed council meetings – you’ve said you want to dock members’ pay for missing five meetings in a row.
  • You say the councillors who supported the motion should pay the $20,000 fee for challenging the motion in court – how will you put that motion forward if meetings can’t go ahead?
  • Can we let bygones be bygones for the sake of Brampton regarding the issue with half of Brampton City Council?
  • The city’s former integrity commissioner is reportedly suing the city for $3 million dollars after being let go by council – do you think the councillors who voted for the firing should also be fiscally responsible for that lawsuit?
  • On your bid for Mayor of Brampton – how do you think running for the CPC leadership has impacted your chances of re-election?
