Council's Heavy agenda - in action

Wed Jul 13, 2005 Miss Vicky 

I had contemplated wandering down to City Hall today to attend some of the council meeting. I know, I know, it's a geeky thing to do with one's day off....what can I say? I find some of the issues they're dealing with right now pretty interesting.

Anyway, I don't need to leave the comfort of my home to keep an eye on our councillors - you can watch the proceedings live via the city's website.

Looks like the Alta Vista transportation corridor is the hot item right now. Actually, it's a proposal to lease some land on Smyth to the hospital, but it's perceived by some councillors as an attempt to scuttle the corridor. The mayor's trying to make a point right now that the corridor - if we do go ahead with it - is a couple of decades away anyway, so leasing the land to the hospital for 15 years (for parking). A valiant attempt to direct debate away from the corridor, but it's not going to work.... council is divided on the issue, and passionately committed to their positions. Clive Doucet's giving a barn-burner about climate change and roads.... I'm sure others will argue the opposing view later.

Hm. It's going to be a long meeting.

Some people were moved to reply

Ummm...

nevermind.

Miss Vicky Jul 13, 2005 12:26 PM said:

Well, the lease has been approved (other elements of the commitee recommendation were rejected). Not many people actually debated the lease - except Alex Cullen, who is against the Transit Corridor but doesn't favour carving up greenspace for a parking lot. Fair point.

Of course, we'll get into the Corridor issue again in September. Fun's not over yet, kids!

heh.

A playbyplay of a city council's meeting.

never thought I'd see the day.

I was reading your post in my best hockey announcer voice. made me giggle.

I think I could pull it off... but those council meetings are too damned long.

(they're discussing budget directions now, btw)

Miss Vicky Jul 13, 2005 05:25 PM said:

It's Harder vs Bedard on bilingual services at the Central Canada Exhibition now.... emotions running high.... It's been a long meeting folks, and there's a lot of items left to discuss.

taking a break for Bluesfest and Gazpacho now. I'm guessing they'll reconvene another day to get through their agenda.

I went to that website several times today and it brought up MS Media Player (or whatever-TF) but I could not get it to play. What's up with that?

Dr.Dawg Jul 15, 2005 09:17 AM said:

What a disappointing couple of days. Council basically voted to keep the destructive Alta Vista Corridor alive, even opposing turning some of the land into greenspace for the time being. The burbites want to pave the downtown and choke us with exhaust fumes so they can shop at Holt Renfrew.

On top of that, Chiarelli gets to keep his tainted job at Ottawa Hydro. And on top of THAT, Council supported the inflated, 8%-increase police budget, while whining aloud (even Cullen got into the act) about an arbitral award to City employees barely above the rate of inflation.

It all makes me want to weep. Which is a vast improvement--in the bad old days, I'd be calling for armed struggle right about now. :)

Miss Vicky Jul 15, 2005 02:57 PM said:

Yep. I didn't want to get going on the police budget.... and I'm not sure what happened with today's discussions of the O-train.

I am hoping the Waste Management stuff was passed,but we'll have to wait for the minutes to come out.

Sure, city council's good for nerd points, but try sitting through school board meetings...truly not for the faint of heart...

A marketing orientation makes advanced planning on product development and product much more difficult. Your business must respond to the perpetual changes in consumer desires from your solutions. Marketing oriented companies must have strong technology infrastructures and clearly defined communication channels to allow for efficient response times. Production processes must flex to the new features customers want and marketing, and sales employees need to know what benefits to use in persuasive selling.
