It was bad enough that city staff sent to civic transportation committee a poorly researched document that essentially put the fix in for light-rail to be sent down the Byron linear park.
Fortunately wiser heads prevailed with Mayor Jim Watson and city council putting all western light-rail options back on the table. Now a day after the mayor has had to deal with the heated casino debate, his transportation committee chairwoman really stuck her foot in it on light rail (to read the two letters that prompted this issue click here and here).
Marianne Wilkinson in an email to city light-rail activists allowed grudgingly that there should be more consultations on the topic, but her mind is made up. Either get the National Capital Commission to open the Macdonald Parkway to light rail or find a way to get it down Richmond Road. Forget Carling Avenue. Period.
