As many of you will know the Mayor, Lianne Dalziel, returned to work this week after nursing her dying husband and then having to deal with his death and funeral. We all wish her well as she grieves the loss of her Rob.
Lianne received a really nice email from one of the civics reporters. This reporter then started ringing CCC and asking had the Mayor returned to work yet. This went on day after day.
CCC staff contacted the Editor of the Press and asked for a bit of compassion toward Lianne. They were surprised at the response.
I know, Kamala Hayman, that Lianne is a public figure. I know, better than most, the burden of responsibility on the shoulders of the Mayor. I understand, and respect, the role of the third estate. Especially when it performs beyond click bait territory. Holding public figures and institutions to account is really important.
So is human compassion.
