From Facebook. Does Mayor Banman think the Abbotsford Chicken Manure Homeless Incident is something which happened to him … as opposed the the homeless citizens who had their camp covered in chicken manure by the Mayor’s staff.
On his Facebook page Banman posted a saying he found somewhere on the internet – “Anyone can run away. it’s super easy. Facing problems and working through them, that’s what makes you strong.”
He really seems to think he has done the difficult thing and taken responsibility by saying so. He held a press conference and said that buck stops at both his desk and that of City Manager George Murray.
Neither one apparently intends to resign for their responsibility in the matter … why would they … they just took full responsibility … that means it’s over right? Now they don’t have be responsible anymore.
- Press release … check
- Press Conference … check
- Full responsibility … yada yada … buck stops here … yada yada … check
- Facebook post saying how tough it has been … check
Does anybody remember when taking responsibility was not an empty statement designed to put and issue behind you but a statement of character meaning that you were accepting blame and punishment for something you either did or that happened on your watch?
Until very recently taking full responsibility meant saying, “It was my fault. It happened on my watch and I therefore resign.”
Banman seems to think this is over because he told some reporters he is taking full responsibility.
Forgive the pun your worship but chicken shit doesn’t begin to describe your performance.
Have a look at how seriously he takes himself and his performance and then have a look at what some of his supporters think about the homeless.
“Darlene Bowman say – the “homeless ” manure issue is just that….chickenshit….they are mostly homeless by choice which makes them vagrants …they are breaking the law by pooching on public land…they need to move on and find ways to support themselves and their families…sorry to be so hard am tired of those that dont want to work leech off of us that have spent a lifetime supporting our families.”
Mayor Banman is a member of the Abbotsford City of Character movement‘s Council of Character.
