Talk, Talk, Talk On POW Bridge: Whopper Watch




“They’re discussing it more than any two other mayors ever have.”

NCC CEO Mark Kristmanson on talks between Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson and Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin about the Prince of Wales Bridge


If talking about the Prince of Wales Bridge were track, there’d be a line stretching from the bridge to the moon.

The National Capital Commission has put it in its 50-year plan. Good move. That gives the parties just about the time they will need to put LRT on the span.

Video above: Perhaps the two mayors can discuss the Prince of Wales Bridge over tea and sod on July 2.

  1. Only one thought comes to my mind.

    Who are these people that believe in the validity of working out details for a 50-year plan? I will only tell them all that if you are still alive in 50 years you will have come to the conclusion that what you planned did not even come close to happening.

    Youngsters, ah, to be so naive.


    1. Chaz:

      Talk about naive. I keep publishing The Bulldog in hope that things will change for the better at Ottawa City Hall.

      Any sign of that happening?



  2. I post here in the belief that one post represents at least 100 voters. If having hope that things will change is naïve, then I am delighted with the label!

    1. Fed-up Voter:

      Sometimes being hopeful is the only reason for getting out of bed in the morning. I marched in the U.S.A., I marched in Canada, I even did the good ole sit-ins. We youngsters were naïve but I can still be hopeful. I am just not holding my breath while wishing for sanity to prevail.


      1. Chaz,
        Every day, waking on the right side of the grass is a good reason for getting out of bed and by itself is hopeful.

  3. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with 50-year plans. Heck, 100-year plans are in order. But having thought this true (where could we or do we want to be in 50 to 100 years), then there has to be a path towards the desired goal.
    Interestingly, a joint group (Ottawa, Gatineau, NCC) did just that, in a series of excellent reports called “Choosing our Future.” The report (and its proposed ways forward) were tabled in 2012, and forgotten; at least on the Ottawa side, the team was disbanded.
