    sure hope the council will stand up for once and clear Bianna of any wrongdoing and force those idiots at MAS to get her back. There is also still an officer wrongfully dismissed who has yet to have an arbritration hearing on her dismissal..maybe someone can approach the council about her as well..probably not but worth a try against useless management …
