Watson Wins PR War At Crash Site

Watson

Watson

Here’s how Mayor Jim Watson gets elected.

His OC Transpo buses run signal lights four times at the site of the bus-train crash north of Barrhaven near Woodroffe Avenue. The Transportation Safety Board raps the knuckles of the City of Ottawa accordingly.

But Watson, ever the opportunist, practises some deflection. So he starts to shift the blame for problems at the level crossing onto Via Rail which has had countless woes with its signals malfunctioning. And Via Rail has had legitimate difficulties getting its signals correct. Watson is right.

Melnyk

Melnyk

Ottawa Senators’ owner Eugene Melnyk spoke on Prime Time Sports Tuesday on Sportsnet and that’s usually good for some fireworks.

Instead Melnyk was very calm but forthright about what he wants in his team and the changes that need to be made to make the Senators a contender.

First, Melnyk said, the team does not need to overhauled. There will be no mass exodus of players. “It’s a young team that can only get better,” Melnyk said.

Why Die For Danzig?

Harper

Harper

Prime Minister Stephen Harper called Russia “clearly aggressive, militaristic and imperialistic … a significant threat to peace and stability in the world.”

Rather a statement of the obvious, but true nevertheless.

The Russian have annexed Crimea and are stirring up trouble in eastern Ukraine. Soon we’ll hear some excuse like Hitler used to spout when he invaded a neighbouring country. German people in those countries were being abused so Hitler attacked to protect them. Insert Russia in the previous sentence and it’s about the same methodology as Russia in Ukraine. Ethnic Russian citizens in Ukraine want to join the mother country and so Russia is stirring up trouble there.

Move Fast On Bus Safety Changes

OC Transpo busChange comes slowly at Ottawa City Hall:

Six months after the tragic OC Transpo-Via Rail bus-train collision that claimed the lives of six Ottawans, significant safety measures come to the Woodroffe Avenue Transitway line at Fallowfield where the mishap occurred. By May 15, a warning signal should be operating at the site of the crash. One wonders how many vehicles passed through the level crossing between September to May without it.

In Praise of Jim Flaherty

The National Post’s Michael Den Tandt takes a look at the career of the late Jim Flaherty, finding a rare moderate in the Conservative party:

Jim Flaherty was just one man, but he was a man of great personal charm and integrity, of wisdom even, in a key role, in a government that too often appears mysteriously void of these qualities.

Cruel Tricks On Via Rail Line

It’s hard to believe that sick people live in our city who would vandalize train warning signals at level crossings in Ottawa.

But that’s what is being considered as a possible cause of numerous train warning signal outages on the Via Rail line through the south part of urban Ottawa. Police have been notified of this new wrinkle in the situation.

Grief Over Flaherty Death Is Real

Flaherty

Flaherty

Bulldog commenter Sheridan takes on the controversy on this news site concerning the coverage of former finance minister Jim Flaherty’s passing:

I think the fact that Flaherty, a long-serving and high ranking civil servant (both federal and provincial), died at the age of 64 and so soon after resigning his post as Minister of Finance (and is therefore fresh in everyone’s memory), makes this an emotional experience.
