“If he’s constantly hedging his bets, he better tell us.”
Mayor Jim Watson on whether Senators owner Eugene Melnyk wants
to move to LeBreton Flats
Watson at his worst.
Apparently the mayor wants a confrontation with Melnyk.
His Worship backs a lousy deal at Lansdowne, has put together an absolutely awful light-rail plan that’s late and getting later, alienated the vital rank-and-file police officer and now has a massive sewage tunnel that’s far behind schedule.
Meanwhile National Capital Commission officials say everything is going fine at LeBreton.
So where does the problem reside? Watson.
Showboat Jim is trying to make hay because he doesn’t like Melnyk. Typical petty Watson. If anyone is putting LeBreton at risk, it’s the mayor grandstanding powered by his superhuman need for publicity. Ego, thy name is Watson.
Watson you’ve screwed up most everything you’ve put your hands on at Ottawa City Hall. You’ve cost taxpayers billions in unnecessary spending. You’ve made a mockery of open, caring and inclusive government. You’re in no position to be telling anyone anything.
So here’s some an advice from someone who has been watching you for far too long.
Put a cork in it and quit. We’ve had a snoot full of you and your facile games. Ottawans have had enough of a man who is 99-per-cent paper tiger and one-per-cent substance.
Do everyone a favour. This stupid show has gone on for far too long.
