A quote from a laughing Premier Kathleen Wynne on Hamilton.
“I thought we were done with that? Uhh?! (laugh). “
“I want new transit in Hamilton. I know the Mayor is very supportive of getting this transit built. “
“So, were going to let, once again, (laugh) Hamilton council have this conversation. I honestly thought the conversation was done. “
Welcome to Hamilton Ms. Premier, where if you leave it to the old guard it will never get done!
These were her words after being informed that Hamilton council was holding a vote to reaffirm where it stands on LRT.
Kathleen Wynne, like the rest of us, thought that was covered when council accepted the giant cheque to pay for it.
But in true council form, there is always at least one attention grabber that will embarrass the rest and drag down the city in the process.
The same old 1 step forward, 2 steps back routine, of the last couple of decades. Like the stadium, Red Hill and fight to bring back home mail delivery.
No matter what your position is on LRT to have any premier say this to a city that has just received $1 billion is beyond embarrassing.
It makes city council sound unqualified.
The councillors involved should step down.
I’m Scott Thompson.
Wednesday on The Scott Thompson Show!
Embarrassing City Council confusion over LRT has Wynne giggling at us. (Again)
