The Mayor of Calgary was in a Lyft ride sharing car, similar to Uber, in Boston recently.
Inside was a charismatic driver who also hosts his own live streaming show of his rides.
During a ride, the Mayor starts spouting off to the bating driver about Calgary’s issues with Uber and what he thinks of them.
Needless to say it shows the mayor in bad light commenting off the cuff and clearly unaware he was being streamed live and recorded.
When the Mayor got back to Calgary his opponents were waiting for him, ready to pounce on his gaffe.
The Mayor apologized to everyone and especially the head of Uber who he called a Richard! (sort of)
To add fuel to the fire the Calgary City Council wants the matter referred to the Integrity Commissioner.
Am I the only one here that thinks they got the wrong guy?
Sure what the Mayor said was stupid, and he should know better.
But the lost soul who deserves a visit with an integrity commissioner is the creep driver who live streamed and recorded the Mayor secretly.
Is it any different than peeping into someone’s window at night and streaming it to the world?
