That’s not new.
Now council wants monthly reports on the progress of Rideau Transit Group on the LRT project. That’s not new either.
In fact, someone familiar with the project says RTG has been providing weekly updates for some time to staff so there is no excuse for withholding LRT information from the public and city council.
Furthermore, isn’t it curious that after the project was declared late, then suddenly council wants monthly reports. Like closing the barn door after the horses have left.
One wonders how many councillors would have read monthly reports had they been available. In fact, one wonders how many councillors will read the new monthly reports. This is not the most engaged group of people.
Only a few councillors read these tomes and it shows.
Former Bay councillor Alex Cullen used to be in his office at 2 a.m. pouring over reports to find flaws and to be ready to ask tough questions of staff.
Don’t see much of that now. Many councillors are taking the lazy way out.
