This is a comment from the inimitable Bulldog contributor Ron Benn.
Benn is commenting on the lack of consultation in New Edinburgh on the sewage tunnel and a possible cause of marriage breakdown.
Take it away, Ron:
The approach implemented by the city on this has been inconsistent with Mayor Watson’s rhetoric about open, transparent and accountable, not that this is the first instance, nor is there any expectation that it will be the last instance.
The city failed to communicate clearly with the community about this prolonged construction plan. To be clear, staff and elected officials (in fairness to the current Councillor, it was the previous Councillor who chose not consult the community) decided not to communicate the construction plan with the community. That makes it an act of commission (an explicit decision), rather than an act of omission (oops, we forgot). Intent matters.
As an acquaintance of mine once said, it is easier to get forgiveness than permission. It is noteworthy that he is divorced, and there might just be a correlation there.
