Nunziata’s knockout

Hall monitor: seen and heard in city council chambers

It’s not every city council meeting that Speaker Frances Nunziata comes down to council chambers floor to blatantly call out another councillor for flip-flopping. But at this week’s council meeting, Nunziata’s double-slam knockout to Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti was accentuated by her groan-worthy choice of words (quite literally, judging by Councillor Gord Perks’ audible response) – and even caused Councillor Jim Karygiannis to question the appropriateness of the language. Nunziata’s defence? The phrase has been used in the House of Commons.
