Enza Anderson Urges Reflection, Not Reaction, on Giambrone Issue

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2010) - Enza Anderson, Candidate for Toronto City Council in Ward 27, today released a statement on Adam Giambrone's recent career issues.

"So far, I've declined to comment on the private behaviour of a public official," said Anderson, "because we're missing the real questions here.

Is private behaviour always related to career duties? Who decides what conduct is relevant? Where is this policy published? And finally, how does it serve Toronto to act out a daytime-TV version of civic politics—in a centre of culture? 

If self-indulgence is the issue, then feeling superior over common weakness also qualifies as self-indulgent. (Smirking is so terribly un-photogenic.)

The only issue is that each of us, including media, shares responsibility for what we were looking for in the first place: Distraction. Now let's get back to business. And Adam, don't make me have to come over there."
