CANDIDATE QUESTIONNAIRE – Shelagh McFarlane, Mayor

“Because Guelph needs a “Mayor” & we don’t have one. We have a “head of Council” under oath to THE CITY STATE & we have a GLOBAL MAYOR working for the World Economic Forum. Neither position works for us, in case you haven’t noticed.”

Why are you running for mayor?

Because Guelph needs a “Mayor” & we don’t have one. We have a “head of Council” under oath to THE CITY STATE & we have a GLOBAL MAYOR working for the World Economic Forum. Neither position works for us, in case you haven’t noticed.

People are in crisis here & a Mayor is the fastest way to get them help.

From your understanding about the role of mayor in the City of Guelph, please write a brief job description.

According to the Criminal Code of Canada, a Mayor is a “peace officer”, equal in status to “warden, sheriff, justice of the peace.” So a brief job description would be: “Warden of the Wards, local Sheriff (shire reeve)” – if they are under a true oath.

A Mayor is the town rooster & has 2 jobs: protect the area from predatory weasels, and “service” the hens or “wards”. If weasels convince him to leave his post to be a GLOBAL PARROT, the house will be destroyed by weasels – which is happening now.

Tell us a bit about your background and experience, and how that will inform the way you work as the mayor?

1. Legal Experience: I worked at the Canadian Legal Information Centre, Community Legal Education-Ontario & The Plain Language Associates in Toronto. We translated long, legal documents into simple ‘plain language’ to help people understand what they were signing. Lawyers taught me legalese (weasel words), the power of a signature & status. Your Mayor needs to know this before they sign anything.

2. Political Experience: In 2014, I ran for Kincardine council to stop Ontario Power Generation (OPG) from burying nuclear waste beside our Great Lakes. It was being decided in “Mayor Secret Meetings”. By running for local office, I got the voter list and went door-to-door with their “secret”. i didn’t win the seat but OPG was stopped.

What do you think was the most consequential decision made by city council during the 2018-2022 term?

Going to the CITY for legal advise. The CITY Solicitor has stated IN WRITING he doesn’t work for the Mayor, the councillors or the people of Guelph. Using him is like asking your wife’s divorce lawyer who should get the house.

In March 2020, taking CITY legal advise, the Mayor signed the Emergency Declaration Form in two capacities – public & private – and transferred jurisdiction. This lockdown order caused 2 years of destruction here – using only by-laws. So I’d say this legal advise to the Mayor was pretty “consequential”…

Guelph has to make room for thousands of new people over the next three decades, but there’s some concern about whether that’s possible. How do you help Guelph achieve growth targets while assuring residents that we can grow responsibly?

Growth targets are UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #8 – “Promote growth”. This agenda is an international agreement to which CANADA is the signator, not Guelph. We are not a party to it, except through partnerships &/or fraud.

No one is obligated to participate in fraud or finance any agreement they are not a party to. And a Mayor has no authority to make international agreements. We used to know this.

A healthy, happy town will attract settlers without the interference of “UNITED NATIONS GROWTH TARGETS”. These targets are meant to destroy Guelph. Forced growth will always fail.

Issues concerning metal health, addictions and homelessness are apparent in Guelph, especially in our downtown core, and we seem to have reached the limit of traditional sources of assistance. What are your ideas to help combat this growing crisis and how will you work to enact them?

There is lots of money when we restore governing & financial independence. Property taxes etc. will be directly deposited & locally dispersed ONLY, using an independent financial institution, separate from MEMBER STATE commercial banks.

Right now, we have no control of our wallet or credit card, they just send us the bill.

There’s been discussion about a budget crunch coming, and if taxes are going up higher than what can be affordable for rate-payers. Will you be proposing cuts to the budget, and if so, what do you cut and why?

There’s been over two decades of “Mayor Secret Meetings” & private developer deals. The fiscally responsible thing to do is a full forensic audit of all accounts, agreements & partnerships. Any agreement entered into without right or full disclosure is fraud – null & void.

There is lots of money once we detach from commitments we are not obligated to finance & partnerships we don’t benefit from. We’re richer than we think.

The Government of Ontario has proposed so-called “Strong Mayor” powers as a way to accelerate housing development. From your understanding, is this a promising strategy, and would you take advantage of such powers if extended to Guelph?

The proposed so-called powers are slotted to go to the CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER (CAO) & they don’t work for us. The CITY CAO (Scott Stewart) is UN-elected, UN-accountable & UN-available, so no, this isn’t a promising strategy.

My strategy is an “EXIT” strategy to restore governing & financial independence, which I have described above. Neither the CAO nor THE CITY STATE has any legitimacy here except by presumption, conversion &/or fraud.

The mayor is sometimes called upon to represent Guelph at the table with upper levels of government and other groups, how is Guelph a leader among cities in Canada, and what kind of assistance do we need from upper levels of government?

We will lead by example. Guelph won’t need any assistance once we restore governing independence & stop the theft. Other towns can do the same. We can set the template. This isn’t a money problem, it’s a “control of money” problem.

And remember, Guelph has the “AAA” credit rating… not the CITY STATE. We are the value here.

Inflationary pressures, aging, and city growth are all putting pressure on the City’s infrastructure. How do we balance cost and need while still making sure that Guelph residents have access to great amenities?

By restoring independent governance. A local government’s primary purpose is to facilitate access to services & to balance costs. Why else do we elect them?

They can’t do this now – they are privatized so public funds can be funneled to private projects. However, this conversion of elected officials without full disclosure is fraud. Fraud vitiates all.

As made apparent at a council meeting last year, the community is deeply concerned about the effects of climate change. How would you advise City staff on the best ways Guelph can be a climate leader in the next four years?

Really? Everyone I talk to is FAR more concerned about the mental health of our children, the fentanyl crisis, the welfare of our seniors & homeless, the destruction of small businesses, crime, the cost of rent, groceries, taxes & housing, bad roads, no jobs, the lack of accountability from their elected officials & the gross infiltration & theft by global developers…. A LOT more than “climate change”.

What community thinks it’s okay to ignore the crushed youth & homeless here so they can ‘save the planet’? Who here thinks new electric buses take priority over children cutting & killing themselves at the age of 12?? I highly recommend they try living on the streets until their heart thaws. “The planet is just fine – it’s the people that are f**ked.”(George Carlin).

Given that the City of Guelph wants to move more people onto other modes of transportation, especially transit, should the mayor lead by example by actively using Guelph Transit whenever possible?

THE CITY OF GUELPH doesn’t decide modes of transportation. They are a municipal service corporation, not government. They own nothing, they control nothing, except through presumption, conversion &/or fraud.

As I said above, the CITY STATE is under a different transportation SDG agenda & this is NOT the local one, unless the people here agree. As it stands, their voice has been silenced due to a conversion of their status, which, without full disclosure, is fraud.

How can the mayor promote openness and transparency at city hall, especially considering the rise in mistrust of institutions in Canada?

1. CITY HALL will return to “Public” when the “Mayor” returns to “Public”. They both are public assets that the CITY STATE doesn’t own.

2. There is mistrust of our elected officials because they sold our assets & our future to private global investors, which is a criminal breach of trust… & fraud.

How can the mayor promote a diversity of thought and experiences in the council chambers outside of the make-up of the elected council?

In Canada, a Mayor’s duty is to defend freedom of speech according to the Bill of Rights. If they promote any view on “thought”, they in turn, restrict it. I will promote openness, equity & tolerance, & allow people to govern their thoughts accordingly. Like we used to do.

Freedom of thought & speech is a right. Restricting these, in any way, is against the law.

Finish this sentence: I would be very disappointed if we got the end of this election without debating…?

Any lawyer in town willing to rebut this. We can’t even vote for a Mayor anymore – we elect a CITY head of Council…. by proxy… FRAUD.

Luke 11:52 – “Woe unto you lawyers…for you have taken away the key of knowledge.”
