Ontario pitches in for Ottawa LRT

Six hundred million smackeroos is what the McGuinty government in Queen’s Park is pledging toward phase one of Bytown’s transit re-do. Good on them!

Um, but wait – let’s see… municipal elections are in 2010… hmmm…

What are the chances of the federal contribution being scuttled if a new non-Harper/Baird/Poilievre-friendly Mayor is elected???

Which is what most of us are hoping for.

Sigh.

I won’t see LRT in Bytown until after I retire in 2022…

    You get to retire in 2022? Lucky Bazturd!
    Cripes, … knew I should’a kept my safe pension funded job in 1982. Oh well, with the way climate change is going, I should be able to find me some arable land in the Arctic by then. Wouldn’t be the first time a 60+something started farming to make ends meet.

    OMG! You are SO right! How can I think that Dear Leader would stoop to such a base level.
    I hang my head in shame and deserve the beating that Herr Baird will be sure to administer to me.

    I can hardly believe that you think the benevolent leader who wants so badly to protect us from stringent environmental controls would possibly be swayed by something as vile as cheap political pork barrel pandering. It’s shocking to even hear such a thought raised and so I’m going to forward a copy of this to homeland security for them to process.
