Vancouver councillor in trouble for shouting at citizen during meeting — in Washington

September 20th, 2010 · 9 Comments

What is it with municipal councillors these days?

At least Mayor Gregor Robertson had the decency to wait until everyone was gone and he thought the mikes had been turned off before he referred to speakers/audience members at a public meeting as “f***ing NPA hacks.” (For the irony-challenged, please spare me your posts about how this is another glaring example of my mindless defence of everything Vision does.)

But this Vancouver, Washington, councillor actually started shouting during a public meeting — all captured on YouTube, of course. Isn’t democracy a wonderful thing these days?
