...who ran for and last night won a seat on Mississauga City Council (ward six). Despite her penchant for hot-headed remarks, I have always thought Paul Martin acted dishonorably when he kept Ms. Parrish from the Liberal caucus after she propped up his government during the May 2005 non-confidence votes. Martin's actions seem particularly spiteful given that Carolyn was suffering a bout of kidney stones on the day of the vote.
Nice to know that Ms. Parrish is happy to be a "small fish" on Mississauga Council. Also nice to know that she is being looked at as a possible replacement for Mayor Hazel McCallion when "Hurricane" Hazel either retires or drops dead. Hopefully, Carolyn Parrish will be in politics long after Paul Martin has has faded into a vague, unpleasant memory.
So here's to Carolyn Parrish, a good Canadian.
