Cullen Condemns Choice Of Committee Chairs

Harder

Harder

Former Bay ward councillor Alex Cullen takes on a couple of committee postings coming out Wednesday’s council meeting in this email to The Bulldog.

Watson’s list of City Council Committee Chairs shows clever politicking – no surprise here. But two choices stand out for the wrong reasons: Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder as Chair of Planning Committee, and Stittsville Councillor Shad Qadri as Chair of Public Health.

Budget Increase Is Really A Whopper

Ottawa City Council has approved a two-per-cent increase in spending for the upcoming budget.

When one hears two per cent, the natural tendency is to say that’s a mighty small increase. Why those councillors must be really on the job to keep spending so low.

Document Reveals Beer Store, LCBO Sweetheart Deal

lcboToronto Star columnist Martin Regg Cohn, in a very good piece of reporting, reveals how the oligopoly-like private beer industry in Ontario keeps its favourable position:

­

Thanks to a whistleblower, we now have the secret details of how Ontarians are being hosed by The Beer Store with the wilful involvement of elected officials.

Before stocking up for the holidays, you can read why the province remains captive of a private quasi-monopoly in beer retailing that bankrolls the richest, toughest political lobby in the province.

Open Letter To Baird On Light Rail

Baird

Baird

This is an open letter to Foreign Minister John Baird from The Bulldog:

Dear Mr. Baird:

As the minister responsible for the National Capital Commission, you have said publicly you do not want the city’s light-rail line to be built on the Macdonald Parkway.

The Bulldog could not agree more. Light rail should go through commercial and residential areas such as Carling Avenue, not through parks where green space is destroyed and people don’t live.

User-Unfriendly Audio Minutes: Whopper Watch

service ottawa

The City of Ottawa doesn’t provide written minutes of meetings.

What Mayor Jim Watson means with this quote below is that when the municipality puts city council and standing committee meetings on audio and video, residents must run through hours of recordings to find debates or quotes on events that interest them.

Now and then a city hall source will call to say The Bulldog should run this quote or that quote because it’s very relevant to a pressing issue. But The Bulldog simply can’t spend that kind of time to find one quote. Other journalists can’t as well.

City Hall: Closed, Uncaring, Exclusive

Watson

Watson

Why don’t we have written minutes of meetings such as we had pre-2011, the Citizen’s Joanne Chianello asks?

Strangely enough, your friendly neighbourhood Bulldog asked that same question when written minutes were halted, to be replaced by audio and video.

Ahhh Grasshopper, you have so much to learn.

But now with the wisdom of time and hindsight, we see the mindset of our current leader King James of Watson and realize that he talks openness (“Why we’ve had fewer in camera meetings than any other municipality …”), he means something else. Like council meetings with no debate. Debate can be embarrassing.
