Reinventing history, Olivia Chow-style

WHAT SHE SAID AT LAST THURSDAY'S MAYORALTY CAMPAIGN LAUNCH: "I want to put children and families at the heart of our city."
WHAT SHE DID: As a school trustee in 1989, she voted herself an 86% pay hike and spent the most on expenses ($30,570)....
WHAT SHE SAID: "The current mayor is no role model for my granddaughters ... we deserve better."
WHAT SHE DID:..Lived in a taxpayer-subsidized three-bedroom co-op apartment, paying $800-a-month while making jointly $120,000 (one-third tax free) jointly a year. Public pressures forces them out in mid-1990...
As member of Police Services Board in 2000, she turned up at a violent OCAP riot at Queen's Park and instructed cops to back off. She was forced to resign from police services board because of her interference...
WHAT SHE SAID: "I learned how to work hard and make every penny count, to save money for rainy days and invest wisely ... that is what I will do as your new mayor."

Personally, I'm expecting Kinsella to be every bit as useful to Olivia Chow as his involvement was to boost the mayoral bid of Rocco Rossi in 2010
