Vimy Heroes Deserve Better: Bulldog On CFRA

cfraCFRA’s Ron Corbett, filling in for Rob Snow, and Bulldog Ottawa’s Ken Gray discuss renaming the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge and how the municipal election is unfolding.

Gray says the bridge is too far away from downtown to honour the Vimy victory and it would be better to name the span after a major municipal figure.

Harper’s Russian Reaction Is Feeble

Harper

Harper

So Prime Minister Stephen Harper is considering even more sanctions against Russia for its role in shooting down a plane-full of innocent people.

Why Canada has imposed sanctions against 110 Russians or Russian organizations for illegally annexing Crimea and starting an uprising in eastern Ukraine.

What if Russia tries to annex all of Ukraine? Will Canada impose sanctions against 220 Russians? That will bring the government to its knees. Perhaps we’ll threaten to give prominent Russians paddy-whacks.

Mike Duffy Was A Journalist

Duffy

Duffy

One of the saddest parts of the Senator Mike Duffy saga is that he was a journalist.

A rather well-known one at that.

So for those of us who spent a lifetime trying to do the best we could to honestly report and comment on the events of the day, Duffy’s move to the Senate (with its cash-for-life benefits) was a tad odious.

Phantom Candidate Still Waffles

The Phantom

The Phantom

Yes, there is a major candidate waiting in the wings to run against Mayor Jim Watson … maybe even two.

The Bulldog has been calling this person the phantom candidate so let’s just settle on The Phantom as the name of the potential mayoral candidate.

The potential candidate is a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. He or she is as familiar with a boardroom as the hustings.

Lansdowne Traffic: Worth Repeating

OC Transpo

The problem with taking the bus to Lansdowne is that those vehicles are caught in the same traffic that drivers try to avoid by taking public transit.

Now that part of Lansdowne Park is about to open, the words of Capital Councillor David Chernushenko ring true.

Of course we’ve known about the transit-challenged Glebe area for years but Ottawa went ahead to build a park, shopping centre, high-rises and refurbish the stadium. All will add more traffic:

Give Us City Hall Leadership

watson

Mayor Jim Watson’s term has been marked by many administrative errors.

Frequent Bulldog commenter and community activist Ron Benn serves up this very interesting comment on the breakdown in municipal administration:

Mayor Jim Watson’s most notable achievement in the 3 or years years that he has occupied the mayor’s chair is that he brought harmony to council.

No more long drawn out public ramblings by discontented councillors, no councillors sniping at each other in public. To paraphrase his comments of a year ago, we don’t have a gong show like in Toronto. The negative side of this outcome is that there are no meaningful discussions at committee and council meetings.

Ottawans Must Demand Better Government

ottawa city hall

Too many things are going wrong at Ottawa City Hall.

The $8-million fiasco that is the result of the green-bin audit is part of a dreadful series of mistakes at Ottawa City Hall that is an embarrassment for public servants, politicians and taxpayers themselves.

Missing paperwork and misinformation on the organics program sent the way of council is completely inappropriate but something is much worse than this mess. That is bad and sometimes multi-million-dollar screwups are becoming the norm at city hall.
