    1. Maybe Councillor Mathieu Fleury is demonstrating that he is tri-lingual: Canadian, French, and American.

      Perhaps Fleury is declaring himself ready for an American job. There is a newly elected American President who is looking to fill some job openings in his government. I can think of no better a “yes-man” than Fleury; a political servant eager to heap praise and adoration on his boss, and doggedly follow orders.

    1. This sewage tunnel project seems to be a temporary fix, as the downtown water pipe and sewage pipe separation will still have to be done at some point in time.

      This sewage project was promoted as an affordable project, but then the cost doubled. Initially, Mayor Jim Watson claimed that the LRT roadheaders could be used, after the LRT tunnel was finished, to dig this sewage tunnel. It turns out that that claim was false, and therefore no savings will be realized from that idea.

      However, did they not consider a different design of the sewage project as part of a future LRT underground? Say a Bank Street subway? That way, at least, there would be a use for this sewage tunnel project after it is made redundant some years from now when the downtown pipe separation is finished, ensuring that the sewage and water no longer share the same pipes.
