LRT: Jim Watson Should Resign

Watson

Watson

OK, we’re in Grade 5 class now.

The teacher is at the front of the classroom with two diagrams.

She asks the youngsters where these two diagrams are located? Yes … the Macdonald Parkway and Carling Avenue.

And where is the most logical place to put a high-speed light rail line? Yes … Carling Avenue.

Why is that? One bright student stands up and says that it makes more sense to put light rail on Carling because that’s where there are lots of people and businesses which would profit from the line there.

This map provided by the NCC shows the route of the western extension of Ottawa’s light-rail project.

This is a release from the National Capital Commission:

A Working Group comprised of representatives from the National Capital Commission (NCC) and the City of Ottawa has reached an agreement in principle that would allow the City’s western light rail transit (LRT) extension to be fully buried under the Sir John A.

LRT: The Mayor’s Spin

This is a release from Mayor Jim Watson’s office.

Does anyone realistically think there will be any changes to this project at the March 30 public meeting?

With the stubborn Nancy Schepers accepting notes to the new package, the mayor saying: “I hope you will join me in supporting this innovative solution” and the Stepford Councillors ready to bob their heads?

This is how the City of Ottawa consults. Come to a public meeting so we can tell resident what the city will do. Democracy in action.

Critics of Ottawa’s light-rail plan are beginning to come out of the woodwork.

Well finally.

After years upon years of squawking about how inadequate the Ottawa light-rail project is, someone in the uncritical media in this town (for the most part) has discovered this plan is terrible, too.

Harder Praises Local Planning Control

This is a release from planning committee chairwoman Jan Harder:

Statement from Councillor Jan Harder, Chair of Planning Committee.

The City welcomes the Smart Growth initiatives announced by the Ontario Government today.

City Communications Flops On Communications

ottawa logoThe City of Ottawa is not owned by the public service. Not city manager Kent Kirkpatrick, nor top public servant Jocelyne Begin nor chief communications honcho Lisa Allaire.

Accordingly, Ottawans expect to be informed of difficulties at Ottawa City Hall. They have a right to know. After all, appearances to the contrary, it’s the residents’ government, not that of the aforementioned public servants.

In particular recently, commuters should be given the latest up-to-date information on the condition of the brand-new O-Train which had a significant problem … it wasn’t working Monday … launch day.
