LRT: Holy Orgaworld, They Bought It

nccFrom the people who gave us the Orgaworld deal framed on the back of an envelope and the Plasco plasma gasificator that could not possibly cost the city any money, now we have the LRT tunnel-down-a-park line.

Harder On LeBreton: Top 10 List

Harder

Harder

Ahh, planning committee chairwoman Jan Harder. Yes, Jan Harder.

Glebe residents weep when they hear that name.

For Harder has that suburban ethos. Build big things all over the place as long as everyone has a driveway, a garage, four lanes of open road and a backyard.

Watson, Art Critic: Whopper Watch

Watson

Watson

His Worship Mayor Jim Watson of all of Ottawa is quite a number of things, but now he has become an international aficionado of art.

The art has nothing to do with the City of Ottawa or its territories but when has the Watsonator let that get in the way of a cheap headline? Fair carnies have more reserve than Watson.

“Personally, I think (the victims of communism monument) is going to overshadow and be quite a blight on the precinct of the Supreme Court,” Watson said.

Watson’s Six Whoppers In Two Sentences

Watson

Watson

Oh dear. We the management and staff at the venerable Bulldog have been trying very hard to not write something about the mayor of all of Ottawa, but we have failed again.

It’s just His Worship Jim Watson keeps giving us good material. Who needs Katherine Hobbs when you have stuff like this? Why we’ve stopped missing Larry O’Brien.

This is about as rich as it comes:

“The easiest thing in life is to spend someone else’s money. While the NCC has the right to determine what’s going to go on their land, I think they have to be reasonable and they can’t simply bring forward suggestions that are going to cost $300 or $400 million more and add the woes of our taxpayers.”
