Editors note.. below is concerning a comment made at a recent Council Meeting..

be thekind of leader

 To: Doug & Council:

I heard your comment re why the Student wondered why Cambridge hates them.

I hope you were man enough, honest enough to let him know that all this conflict is YOUR FAULT as it was you who promised to build them a Sports Complex on THEIR property with OUR TAX PAYERS money, so I certainly hope that you gave that Student this correct information.

And then I am sure he would agree with us here in Cambridge.

Guess he should really be mad at you for causing all these issues. Did you tell him that if this had been handled properly by yourself and Council, there would not be this discontent in Cambridge?

I liked Ken Tuckey’s question “WHY?” – yes why????????

I feel this is all your fault so hopefully you can come to grips with your conscience and make this all right.

The Council Meeting of Nov. 15h was a disgrace and talk about dysfunctional – well you’ve got it. Well done Doug!

A Cambridge Taxpayer who is not mad at Conestoga but disappointed with our Mayor and some of the non-thinking Councillors.

Mrs Smith

Mrs. Smith,

I have offered to meet with you and you have refused.

Clearly, you don’t understand that Conestoga College user the jurisdiction of the provincial government is in fact

funded by “your taxpayer dollars” and therefore owned by everyone, including you Mrs. Smith.

It is not an issue of ” their” property. So in fact , I did educate him properly.
From this point on, I won’t be opening any more of your emails.

Mayor Craig


Mrs Smith,
Please take note!
The mayor has intentionally gone and manually left Jan Liggett, Nicolas Ermetta & Mike Devine, off of his email reply to you!
I will leave it in your most capable hands to see that the three of those Councillors receive his unprofessional
and typical reply to you. 
Also, feel free to share as well as we need to get the word out as to the type of person of whom & what we are and have been dealing with!
Your friend,
Roy A. Talbot




The only time he appears to be happy is when he is calling all the shots and NO ONE DARES TO CHALLENGE HIM!!

    Is it possible for this man to get out of teacher mode and be the employee of the citizens of Cambridge that he should be

    His bad decisions go far back…Apparently when the bypass was planned around Cambridge and Claudette Miller was mayor well guess who was on the steering committee to kibosh it…non other than Doug Craig..We can now thank him for gridlock traffic in town.

    Is Mayor Doug Craig even capable of being Mayor of this city any more. With so many mental health issues in this area, Craig is not invincible. Perhaps his lack of reasoning is due to a psychological issue, the onset of dementia or ahlzheimers. Perhaps medication is effecting his abilities for him to act out at Council and attack numerous seniors and residents of the community. This would explain how he could believe all the lies and mumble jumble that spews from his mouth and the anger that he throws out at unexpecting individuals.

    As for hating Conestoga College…what a bunch of garbage…it is placing the multiplex at Conestoga that is not liked, not the college or the students. We hate the lack of process. We hate the control the Mayor is enforcing upon us. We hate how all these projects are increasing taxes and making our very own lives a struggle while he sits back and takes more and more and more and then attacks us for finally having a enough and speaking out.

    Enough is enough. It is time for Mayor Doug Craig to step down. He has shown the negative side of one person residing as mayor for such a length of time.

    The Ministry should step in now and see the issues and revise the Muncipal Act and enforce term limits and allow for mayors to be fired if of bad faith such as ours.

    Doug Craig is the Rob Ford of this community and is no legacy to this city.

    don’t look now
    he plans to run again

      Rande November 21, 2016 at 12:08 pm

      so do you think he will return for another term as mayor?

  6. Debbie Duff Vitez November 21, 2016 at 6:05 pm

    He has to run again, how else can he handle a new mayor finding all the skeletons he has buried.. and his HUGE EGO won’t let him walk away.


    Hence his henchmen voting it down..
    How do we scrutinize telephone, internet and tabulators?
    I asked the Clerk this question and he has yet to respond to my email.. I suspect the Clerks job in gonna be on the line over this one.

    Mr. Craig states “He will retire when he finds a strong person to take over for him” When only 23 thousand people vote in Cambridge and Mr. Craig has 12 thousand supporters and when every one signs up because they think they can beat him its just silly when 7 people sign up to run against him and split the vote, even one on one can not seem to beat him, Because people DO NOT VOTE IN CAMBRIDGE, concentrate on getting the Vote out and that is the only way to get rid of him.

    John Smith November 21, 2016 at 7:38 pm

    Yes but if the voting is done crooked, what can we do. We need to call in some legal help. The voting last time was crooked and that’s why Craig voted out the Ranked voting which is great. Because he knows it would boot him and others out.
    Boy there is a lot going on in Cambridge that stinks – but if you people don’t get on the band wagon – it will just keep on.
    This whole thing has been an education to me – to see how one person can be so in control – how Council cannot think for themselves – or is afraid of Craig?
    God help us all if he runs again and; fixes the ballots. What a shame!

  9. Debbie Duff Vitez November 21, 2016 at 7:52 pm

    Why can’t Cambridge have the same elections, polling locations etc as the Federal and Provincial Elections ?… The answer is so obvious.. Craig would lose simple as that..

    Gloria November 22, 2016 at 9:02 am

    I know people who did not receive their voting ballot…and I wonder if there is a way to see if that person is listed as voting when they did not. There needs to be a way to validate the voting process as there is a high possibility that some people who did not vote will have a vote on register…as well as votes “missing” from the calculation.

    Always remember, that it is a computerized system and someone programs it and someone maintains it and for anyone who knows how the system works, there is always a way to make the outcome what you want. It is obvious that the Clerk can not be trusted after his support on the motion at Council. He will do nothing but what the Mayor wants, even though it is his job on the line as a clerk is accountable.

    Maggie Smith November 22, 2016 at 11:18 am
