If so, are such abusive emails by an elected councillor in violation of the city's --appropriate use-- of tax-payer funded, official communication devices which are given to councillors to conduct official business of the city.

If there is no such use policy in place, then the staff should include this in the "City Media Relations Policy":

  • No councillors shall make use of tax-payer funded communication devices to send single/multiple abusive emails/text messages during or after work hours.

  • The usage/cost of such tax payer funded communication devices by all councillors during day and by evening/night should be made public on a monthly basis.

Does anyone know whether this city issued communication device is being used by Sam to post family pictures on facebook or make silly or personal comments online, or as now, even back-pedal on this issue on twitter?
