The results from our two polls say a few things.
First, Bulldog readers and no doubt the public are concerned for their safety on Rideau Street. They perceive the construction of the light-rail tunnel and three sinkholes on that street as a threat to their well-being.
Second and in addition, Bulldog readers and no doubt the public are concerned for their safety when riding the LRT upon completion.
Contributing to this, one can surmise, is the fact that the city within a week has been caught in two lies: one is the failed attempt to not call the third Rideau Street sinkhole a sinkhole for public-relations reasons; and two is the fact the city lied about not receiving phone calls from the province about the safe-injection site.
So the city is likely to respond, if it responds at all, to these two polls by saying that they are sensational and that the light-rail system is safe. What is sensational is that the city through these two instances simply can’t be trusted to tell the truth.
So is the public about to trust the city when it says LRT is safe? If the public is smart, no.
Here are the results:
