Here is one excerpt:
“ Results of the City’s 2022 budget survey were contained in a report received by council December 9, 2021. During that meeting of Committee of the Whole, Isitt asked, “When organized stakeholder groups mobilize in relation to these engagement exercises, should there be a correction factor? Is it just something council takes into consideration?”
Isitt then suggested the existence of a “public safety lobby that’s underway, it involves Victoria city police union, a number of members of the media, and clearly that’s had an impact in this survey.”
I wasn’t aware of any other organized interest groups mobilizing to encourage participation in the survey so that’s why that’s the only one I’ve referenced,” Isitt added, not mentioning his own use of improperly obtained email addresses to encourage participation in the survey which would later be found to have caused a privacy breach.“
What's so stunning, to me, about BI's comments are the level of petulance and disingenuousness.
The narcissistic, man-child schooled Stephen Andrew at one of his first council meetings because Stephen asked if the survey allowed anyone, from anywhere, to load it with answers. When the city manager said, yes, the survey could include responses from literally anywhere in the world, Isitt, in typical angry defensiveness, told Stephen "democracy is for those who show up," to justify his strategy of loading every survey, every public forum with ideolidiots who just disrupt everything.
Now that the wind has shifted, like any tween, he's whining and throwing all his toys out of the pram. We need to remember that, despite their efforts to distance from him now, Alto, Loveday, Dubouw and Potts have all sat at his feet, lapped it up, and spewed the same.
