Let the blame game begin.
I love this plan referred to as the “Standstill Arrangement”.
It maintains the status quo and just what that might be? Millions of dollars are at stake here. It’s almost classic – the city doesn’t want to pay – it says “the sinkhole was not precipitated by a failure of City infrastructure”. Of course this “Root Cause Analysis Report” cannot be made public.
The Rideau Transit Group is quiet – it doesn’t want to pay either. Meanwhile there are 31 claims of compensation out there by businesses and property owners affected by the sinkhole. They want to be paid. Over to the insurance companies – insured city versus insured RTG – it will take years to settle this.
Meanwhile all is rosy – choo choo – all remains on schedule for revenue service in 2018. We shall see. We will be in the middle of another municipal election by then – sound familiar? Oh the ghosts of Christmas Past must be beaming.
