Bulldog reader Eastender sent along this missive about city council and the casino situation:
Councillors are stumped by how the slot cap was removed for the new Hard Rock Casino Ottawa.
Another screw-up by a limited-thinking group of incompetents at city council. First, light-rail missed deadline in addition to not imposing a fine and now the casino slot-cap situation.
It’s time to question the qualifications of these people running our city. Seems like the bigger priority is for the likes of Kanata South Councillor Allan Hubley and company to focus on getting free rides from their budgets on such items as hockey tickets.
The one thing that can threaten their total incompetence is by asking residents to actually make an effort to vote because most of these so-called city representatives are counting on their traditional supporters to come out and, accordingly, win.
One would think the hockey-ticket issue would set off alarms with Hubley’s constituents in Kanata particularly when he is chairman of the audit committee.
It certainly would be very interesting if the auditor general examined the budgets of our elected representatives although we are all aware of who chairs the audit committee. Let’s hope for a significant amount of turnover on council in 2018. It is time for a change and a breath of fresh air at city hall.
This elected group is the worst seen in many years. Former councillors Alex Cullen or Jacques Legendre might have been irritants, but they certainly did their homework and asked pertinent questions. For the most part, we have a significant number of politicians who simply dance to Watson’s tune.
It’s time for change with a new approach and a strong vision for our city. Surely the talent is out there because it is a rare trait on this council. If most put as much energy in their work as they do in their silly tweets, perhaps we could observe some improvement in the effort to read the material they are given.
Drain the swamp.
