Chianello’s Lost Perspective: Whopper Watch

“We’ve completely lost our perspective, waging a battle royale with the NCC for what amounts to a minor LRT route change while the permanent ruination of a superb 5,000-square-metre public space near Parliament Hill is going mostly unmentioned.”

So writes Citizen scribe Joanne Chianello, the sole arbitrator of “perspective” in Ottawa civic affairs.

NIMBYism Revisited

Here’s another take on NIMBYism, this one from Wolf Illing, sent to The Bulldog  by email:

NIMBYism is often just a random reflex response to much more serious issues associated with rezoning, issues that need a lot more attention than they are given at present.

Westboro No More

Hobbs

Now in this post, your agent is using Westboro in the broadest sense … perhaps correctly meaning the old west end but much more recognizable as Westboro to people from Orleans or Barrhaven. So stand down Hintonburgers.

Why does Westboro keep being abused?

LRT Expropriation Figures Still Secret

The Bulldog has a new obsession … discovering what the City of Ottawa paid landowners for their expropriated properties in relation to the light-rail project.

It’s hard to imagine why the city doesn’t simply release the figures, but it doesn’t.

The idea that if one guy got that then another guy will want that too doesn’t wash. Most real estate people can tell you within about $30,000 what a particular property is worth.

City Conducts Meatball LRT Planning

Watson

Watson

Anyone get the idea that the mammoth Phase 2 of Ottawa’s light-rail project is being put together on the back of an envelope?

That absurd idea of putting rail down the Macdonald Parkway where few people live is just meatball planning because of the 100-day detente between Minister John Baird (who is charge of the National Capital Commission) and Mayor Jim Watson?

That proper planning with consultations and detailed study has just been thrown out the window?

Fast Decries Buy America Restrictions

This is a release issued by Minister of International Trade Ed Fast

When you see measures such as this, it makes you wonder what’s the point of having a free-trade deal with the U.S.:

“On behalf of hard-working Canadians and businesses that are being harmed by protectionist U.S. Buy America legislation that imposes U.S. content requirements on a project at the Port of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, we are disappointed by the State of Alaska’s decision not to seek a waiver from the U.S. Department of Transportation regarding these provisions.
