  • Comment on Amazon Plans Huge East-End Ottawa Warehouse: CBC by Ken Gray

    The Voter: Interesting. My guess is he had nothing to do with it. There's a provincial election. But he will take credit for it. Like elephants, some animals acted in prescribed ways. cheers kgray […]

  • Comment on City Staff Learns How To Hide An Elephant: Benn by Bruce

    Another way to hide the elephant is to have a herd of them so the citizenry can not see which elephant is important. This practice is also done by city hall in sending out voluminous notices so the reader is inundated with something akin to diarrhea from city communications department and slowly becomes overwhelmed. […]

  • Comment on Amazon Plans Huge East-End Ottawa Warehouse: CBC by The Voter

    Is this some kind of consolation prize for not getting the new Amazon HQ2? It appears that the confirmation is coming from the federal level which would indicate they're the ones who did the heavy lifting on this project. It's not accidental that Watson and the east end councillors are nowhere to be seen. Do you think the Amazon people made it a condition of the deal that they wouldn't have to […]

  • Comment on Amazon Plans Huge East-End Ottawa Warehouse: CBC by Ken Gray

    Anne Marie, I think you are being very mean here. Can you imagine how many jobs he has created at Tim Hortons? Credit where credit is due. What would Watson's know about creating jobs in the private sector? He's only had a cup of coffee (and Timbits) outside of government. He can't even get a government appointment. Now there's something he has worked long and hard on. cheers kgray […]

  • Comment on Amazon Plans Huge East-End Ottawa Warehouse: CBC by Anne Marie O'Dale

    Ken, I first heard of this yesterday and have been awaiting Mayor Jim Watson's move to take credit. Although today he stated he would wait for Amazon to make the official announcement, he spent longer saying how long and hard he has been working on getting more jobs to the east end. Election year. You bet. […]

  • Comment on Amazon Plans Huge East-End Ottawa Warehouse: CBC by Ken Gray

    Sisco: As of 5 p.m. on Friday and despite the fact MPs are confirming it, Mayor Jim Watson says he doesn't know if Amazon is coming to Ottawa. What a load of BS. Can that man open his mouth without lying? I really wish Watson could come to my backyard and say that stuff. The lawn really needs fertilizing. cheers kgray […]

  • Comment on Amazon Plans Huge East-End Ottawa Warehouse: CBC by sisco farraro

    After some snide comments made by yours truly asking whether or not Ottawa is a major league city, perhaps it is after all or perhaps this is at least the beginning of a bigger future. Interesting that it's Members of Parliament who have jumped on the quotes bandwagon before anyone in city council has had an opportunity to crow. Anyway, good for Ottawa and 1,000 more jobs. Maybe the Amazon […]

  • Comment on Amazon Plans Huge East-End Ottawa Warehouse: CBC by Marilyn Waserman

    Now all the city needs to do is smarten up and build an east end bridge to and from the Quebec side. If not King Edward will be a horror show. Long overdue. […]

  • Comment on High-Rise Vote Was Unanimous At Committee by Ken Gray

    Sisco: I reached out to Rick Chiarelli and he said he would explain his vote in a post soon. cheers kgray […]

  • Comment on High-Rise Vote Was Unanimous At Committee by Ron Benn

    Sisco, I am confident that The Bulldog is part of the regular reading list for many councillors and their assistants, including Councillor Rick Chiarelli. As for me reaching out the councillor on this matter, suffice it to say that there have been times when the councillor and the Centrepointe Community Association do not see eye to eye on issues, and he is well aware of what those issues were […]

  • Comment on Exclusion Of Public In High-Rise Process Was Deliberate by sisco farraro

    Ken. As I was reading through the long list of stakeholders I noticed that one group was missing, the people who are going to have to live with the long-term impact , the homeowners in adjacent areas. People in Ottawa distain Toronto claiming it thinks it's the centre of the universe. Well, the epicentre has changed. It has moved to Laurier Avenue. […]

  • Comment on City Council Blows Off High-Rise Report Critics by Chaz

    Sisco, You can include me in the era of protests and for a while some things did start to change but then, somehow, we ended up in this age of .... I don't know what to call it. Fewer than 40 per cent of Ottawans voted in the last municipal election and you ended up with a council that votes 100 per cent in favour of something that many of them neither read or understood. The two elections that […]

  • Comment on Moscow On The Rideau by Chaz

    Don Quixote was tilting at windmills because he imagined that they were monsters. Ken is tilting at monsters that imagine themselves to be harmless windmills. […]

  • Comment on OK Jan Harder, Explain These Maps by Bruce

    No need for those who vote at council to understand. Just follow what "planning" has decided, or rather what the developers with concierge service have decided. Ignore public input and vote in favour of the development industry, many of whom do not even live in Ottawa. […]

  • Comment on OK Jan Harder, Explain These Maps by The Voter

    Well, Ken, the first map has a triple-X rating which means maybe we shouldn't be looking at it ... or maybe they put that on so more people would want to look at it to see what's so racy about it. The second one has had a Y chromosome introduced for some reason. (If you didn't follow that, read the first line under each map - one is Schedule XXX, the other XXY.) The two maps are the inverse of […]

  • Comment on High-Rise Vote Was Unanimous At Committee by sisco farraro

    I thought more about the picture associated with this article and the fact Rick Chiarelli's name appears with a "yes" beside it. Contributors always seem to write positively about him in their articles, he has a prominent place for an ad (front an centre on the main page), and one of the discussion topics was "Can Rick Chiarelli save the election"? As the commenters have noted the optics are […]

  • Comment on City Council Blows Off High-Rise Report Critics by sisco farraro

    Rats. I missed it but I did hear some mumbling. Many of the people who read the Bulldog were around in the 60s & 70s and we've matured into responsible adults. During those decades people protested over what they felt were injustices in our society, particularly in the US. Protests have once again become en vogue in the past few years, eg. black lives matter, #metoo, etc. Although we've […]

  • Comment on City Hall: Where Democracy Goes To Die by sisco farraro

    Ken, Ken, Ken. 350 members of the press were notified and no one showed up to comment. And if you believe that, I've got a nice little bridge I'll sell you in New Brunswick at a great price. Democracy is still alive and well in Ottawa. It will be on display in October for everyone to see, and we'll have an opportunity to participate. […]
