Video: Mayor Tells Constituent to “Shut Up”

The BIM council meeting of Tues., Oct. 15, was marked by several angry outbursts from Mayor Jack Adelaar. Watch the video and see for yourself. Note especially the first five minutes, where he issues a 24-hour ultimatum to two members of the community, and the 14-minute mark, where he yells during public comments, “Shut up,” “Shut up,” and then “Get on with it.” Unfortunately, the news story ended up being about the mayor’s bad behaviour, not about the docks.
