Mayor McCheese As The Tweepinator

Here is a tweet from Ottawa’s preeminent Tweep, Mayor Jim Watson.



Is there a person in Ottawa who tweets more than the Tweepinator?

When the roof caves in on the light-rail project, His Worship tweets on election signs. Now he’s got the cheese issue covered.

How can you take a person in a responsible position seriously with communications like this?

Give John Baird A Language Break



Poor John Baird. Could it be that the foreign minister doesn’t tweet enough in French?

Oh no.

Imagine. Federal Language Commissioner Graham Fraser is probing the minister to see if Baird is not tweeting half in French and half in English.

So when Waller Street collapsed above the light-rail project construction, what was Watson discussing? The province was responsible for not having liquor available in bars for the gold-medal hockey game. What a waste.

Watson Fails At Policy

The Airport Parkway pedestrian bridge is an example of Mayor Jim Watson’s policy failures.

The big knock against Mayor Jim Watson is not that he doesn’t work; he works at the wrong stuff.

His stupendous event-going and hideous amount of time spent tweeting have been said to take away from the attention he must spend on his most important function: policy. As one senior public servant put it, Watson is a great “retail” mayor, but leaves much to be desired on the wholesale side.

Mister Twitter A Mayoral Obsession

watson twitter

Mayor Jim Watson’s hyper-busy Twitter site. When does Watson find time to be mayor?

When it comes to Twitter, best to consult a youngster. That’s how we discovered Mayor Jim Watson’s tweeting obsession.

You’ll remember a few weeks ago Bulldog Ottawa probed Watson’s preoccupation with attending events and found out that he spends about 25 per cent more than a full-time job at community occasions. And that didn’t include council, committee and other official functions. We wondered when he found time for the business of mayor.
