This past Friday, with other members of council in attendance, I met with and extended to Coun. Stephen Montague my heartfelt and sincere apology for my aggressive verbal behaviour where I threatened him following Monday’s council meeting.
It was absolutely unacceptable behaviour and an egregious lapse of judgement on my part.
I let my anger rule my actions, something that I have taught my children is never acceptable. Coun. Montague was gracious enough to accept my apology.
I have also accepted his assurances that he did not use unparliamentarian language.
Coun. Montague and I are committed to restoring the professional decorum in our council chamber and will work together in the best interests of Brandon.
