Please Sir, I Want A Concierge, Too

ottawa logoLook … your agent needs a concierge.

Why I’m redeveloping my lot which is zoned for three storeys but I want 55 storeys. Surely we can work something out.

You know, we need intensification so I frankly don’t see the problem with putting a 55-storey tower in a residential area. And you don’t need visitor parking anymore so that’s a slam dunk. Why the city was ready to allow two towers at 335 Roosevelt in Westboro so what’s wrong with just one tower on my street. Like what is my street … chopped liver?

Champions Listen To Reason

Well God bless the Ottawa Champions.

A few days after we suggested the baseball club put an ad in the Citizen sports section to tell people it’s playing, why there’s the ad. I don’t think the Champions will be disappointed. The team must get its attendance up.

Give Shania Twain Promoters A Break

Shania Twain

Shania Twain

Pity the fans at Wesley Clover Parks. Pity Wesley Clover Parks.

First off, Wesley Clover Parks is the old reworked national equestrian complex in Nepean. Your agent kept looking at the Shania Twain ads for the concert last weekend and wondering what that is and where that is.

Politicians Have Big Sense Of Entitlement



This is a fine comment from excellent Bulldog contributor Ron Benn concerning Mayor Jim Watson’s tele-conference with the public:

There is a continuing sense of entitlement from the political “elites”, be it at a federal level (Senate expenses, advertising of Conservative programs using tax dollars …), provincial (advertising of Liberal programs using tax dollars) and at the municipal level (accepting contributions from developers and then adding costs within the planning department to reduce the costs borne by those same developers).

Care About Ottawa To Get Results



If you wonder why this city has been taken over by political and business elites and wonder why you aren’t represented, buy a mirror.

The problem is you.

Were politicians to suffer either in the world of public relations or at the voting booth, you can be sure the new city concierge program for developers would not have been created.

This Wasted Money Is Brought To You By Jim Watson



What a waste.

Mayor Jim Watson’s telephone town hall cost $10,000.

The Bulldog can hold the same kind of town hall at the cost of nothing.

We haven’t done it but we can hold a Twitter discussion at the cost of nothing. We haven’t done it because The Bulldog is open for comment business 24 hours a day. No so the mayor.
