The Tony Clement gazebo – on video!

While back in my old haunts yesterday, I HAD to see what all the fuss was about re: the Great And Spectacular Orrville Gazebo.

After all, national media has been focused on the said open walled structure – much of it critical. But I decided to put my bias aside and do two things: interview the gazebo and take some pics of the Sacred gazebo.

The interview. Well. It didn’t go so well. The gazebo just kinda sat there being a gazebo and not uttering a word.

Damn. I was hoping for something quotable.

But the pics and vid… that’s something different!

Here is me – taking in the atmosphere. I was, needless to say, dumbstruck.

In reality, I do indeed have a face, but in fear of retribution from the gazebo’s “muscle”, I choose to remain anonymous.

But check out the vid. Be awed. Be in wonder. Awed at why it took 100K to build this thing and in wonder about why do we let this government continue as our government.

    It’s a well known fact that Canadians demand more gazebos. We know this because of some documents the Conservatives have somewhere that say so. They have documents that confirm all the stuff we have been demanding and which the Conservatives have been delivering. So there. The Conservatives even wrote those documents themselves to save us the trouble of telling them that we need stuff like gazebos.

    I see what you’re saying Dave… yet the one thing that has to be remembered is that each and every funding decision is signed off by the Minister and then goes through the PMO and Harper’s desk… Every-Single-One.
    And the process is that once the PMO (Harper) says yes, then the Minister is informed and makes the announcement. Once the announcement is made, there is usually no going back.
    So, OK, this was willful ignorance for sure… but taking all of the projects like these as a package is more than ignorance…

    I’m not sure you should be hurtin on Tony for this sort of thing.
    I heard that in preparing for the great “uncensus” process to follow, he had the thing built with no info about the cost of such extravagance.
    Therefore unless you want to accuse him of willful ignorance I don’t think he or the other cons can be chastised for really really poor decisions.

  4. This Gazebo will be a great place for all the teens of the world to unite by drinkin’ and smokin’. Thank you, Uncle Tony!
