Bob Bratina, the Mayor of Hamilton, went on CHML’s Bill Kelly Show Thursday for his monthly radio town hall.

What followed was a series of contradictory explainations for why he resigned from the Hamilton Police Services Board earlier this week.

Bratina says he resigned from the Police Services Board due to a conflict between being a member of the Police Services Board and Mayor related to expressing condolences to the families of those killed in police shootings.

Yet, in this 35 minute “town hall”, Bratina’s most commonly stated reason is that he could not control how the media would report on him extending condolenses.

Take a listen for yourself.
