Scott Mitchell's dictionary:

POLITICAL INTERFERENCE - The process that occurs when democratically elected members of Council make a decision that they believe is in the best interests of the constituents that elected them or the city as a whole with which Scott Mitchell disagrees.

OTHER OPTIONS - an ethereal range of non-existent courses of action which, naturally, are never enunciated. See also, threat, empty threat, ruse, shell game, bait and switch, blackmail and confidence game.

ECONOMIC ACTIVITY - The sum total of every possible permutation of money, most of it directly from the public purse, even remotely associated with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, mercilessly churned, fully inflated and extrapolated over decades.

JOBS - The perennial justification underlying a scheme that, both on its face and in reality, appears to benefit few at the expense of many (see taxpayers). Usually the last desperate bastion of someone who's really got something up their sleeve.

FRANKLY - A term used as a preamble prior to running off at the mouth both at length and ad nauseum. Sometimes used at both the beginning and during a particularly lengthy diatribe.
