City Of Ottawa Hates Ottawans: PATTON




Yes City of Ottawa, citizens really do use natural gas to heat their homes.

The City of Ottawa doesn’t really seem to grasp this, Bulldog commentator Mike Patton says.

    How many of those gas-heated homes use that system because of various government programs in the past that encouraged people to move away from coal and oil fired furnaces in favour of cleaner natural gas? Yes, it would be good if everyone moved to even cleaner heat sources but, besides that carrying a huge cost for conversion, people aren’t going to tear out a perfectly good 10-year old furnace to replace it with another system. In addition to the cost of the actual furnace, there is major work to be done through the whole house if you need to change a forced air system to one using baseboard or similar heating methods.

    Until people are converting to another fuel source, it will be necessary to maintain the gas distribution network. Do we really want a pipeline that may not be in top condition running through our communities carrying natural gas? Are the people opposing this work aware of the potential outcomes of a gas leak, particularly in a built-up area? There are a lot of high rises in the development pipeline in the area of the existing infrastructure. Will developers have to warn potential tenants and buyers of the possible dangers connected to a failing pipeline close to or even under their new home?

    Voter, Voter, Voter. Stop with the logic, the practical considerations, the fact based thinking. Those who report to work down on Laurier Avenue, and their colleagues who park their vehicles in the parking lots beside Baseline Station in in Stately Centrepointe base their decisions solely on ideology, supplemented with a healthy dose of pixie dust, to help obscure the limitations of their preferences. Their minds are closed. They are not willing to listen to any evidence that you might present that is inconsistent with their view of the world.

    Sorry, Ron! I slipped up again!

    It’s so hard to be somewhat normal in a land that sustains and rewards the Cityhallians and their warped view of reality without questioning it all. I forget that they are fed and nourished by voter apathy, councillor insouciance and mayoral decay which gives them strength beyond that of the Bulldog crew. But we remain Mighty and will continue to fight the good fight!
