Hobbs Fails Another Test

Hobbs

Hobbs

Relations between the Hintonburg Community Association and Kitchissippi Councillor Katherine Hobbs have declined to such an extent that the association will conduct its own safety check of a bicycle path rerouted due to light-rail construction.

The Women’s Initiative for Safer Environments will help the Hintonburg Community Association with the safety audit of the new bike lane. In reality, that’s a job for the city. However the community is sick of city delays.

Hume’s Domtar Lands Misstep: Whopper Watch

Hume

Hume

Ahhh, Ottawa planning committee chairman Peter Hume takes a strong stand on the Domtar lands development.

Hume says the City of Ottawa must play a role in making the Domtar lands project a success. And of course the city has had a long history of success with its capital projects.

Why there is the state that Lansdowne fell into before the redevelopment; the misstep on Les Soeurs de la Visitation convent; the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge; the Hurdman bridge; the Airport Parkway pedestrian bridge and the collapse of the roof of the light-rail tunnel. No doubt the public would like the city to move to the forefront of the Domtar lands project:

Frequent Bulldog commenter Lawrence criticizes the media and The Bulldog for its preoccupation with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford:

Rob Ford Could Take Toronto Vote

Ford

Ford

The CBC says Mayor Rob Ford could still win the Toronto municipal election:

Drunken stupors, ill-advised TV interviews and lewd public statements notwithstanding, Rob Ford is no political nitwit.

It would be foolish for voters to think so of Toronto’s chief magistrate, say political observers, who argue the mayor’s effectively crafted populist image could carry him through to re-election in October despite a year blighted by scandal.
