One more reason I’m not voting for Larry O’Brien

November 11, 2006 @ 12:10 By: gordon Category: Current affairs

The CBC reported that Bob Chiarelli released a letter from the Province about Ottawa’s light rail project.

Larry O’Brien responded with “I am disappointed but not surprised that the current Mayor would get his good friend Premier McGunity [sic] to send this letter 72 hours before the municipal election.”

You’ve taken hypocrisy to a new level, Larry.

I’d love to ask him it is ok for him to get his friend, John Baird, to interfere in municipal affairs by ignoring the wishes of the current council and the federal government’s funding agreements, and force the incoming council to hold another vote on the matter, but when Chiarelli releases a letter confirming the province’s support for the project, it’s not.

Given this behaviour, I wouldn’t put it past Larry to use similar tactics to bypass council were he to be elected mayor and find himself at loggerheads with the will of council.

Thank you doesn’t say enough.
