Since Councillor Fleury’s humiliation when caught in an outright mistruth (oh how I enjoyed the creative English courses of Richard Nixon’s era) about the Salvation Army facility in Vanier, and Councillor Brockington finding his pants figuratively around his ankles over Mooney’s Bay, the pickings are a little thin.
I am not sure if it qualifies as a screw up, but I find it interesting that Councillor Hubley continues to be of the opinion that when (if?) the next phase of the LRT crosses Moodie Drive, it will have arrived in Kanata.
Councillor Leiper’s mea culpa on the need for bicycle lanes on Spencer Street, a side street in his ward, may allow him to avoid being high on this list.
Does Mayor Watson qualify as a councillor, in the context of this question? If so, let me return to my favourite screw ups of Mayor Watson’s current seven year tenure.
Casino: One or two; central, suburban or rural; competitive bid or just award it, …?
Western exit to the LRT: We can negotiate the right to use the Western Parkway (I was never comfortable about the renaming of it to honour Sir John A., but not because of the recent social justice babblings) with the NCC after we have started construction of phase one. While I am comfortable laying the blame at the feet of the mayor for this, every councillor bears some of the responsibility because they failed to ask the right questions in the first place.
Guns and gangs: Proposing a long term, fuzzy, feel good, but immeasurable solution to a problem that is out of control today is akin to saying that we need to develop fire proof building products for future housing developments, while watching a house burn down.September 11, 2017 at 8:07 AM #736050
