There are two more examples this week of city councillors trying to make it look like there are doing something for their constitutes, when in fact, all they’re doing is standing in the way of progress for votes.
Let’s start with Councillor Terry Whiteheads attempt at blocking Supermail boxes that ended up in a $70,000 plus legal bill for city tax payers with no results.
This was never about the location of boxes, CP has been doing this since the 1980’s.
This was about convincing voters he could actually turn back time and bring back home mail delivery. Wrong.
The second is councillor Chad Collins who has been barking for a referendum on LRT even though he and his council have already accepted the $1billion cheque from the premier.
Seems he has withdrawn the idea since consulting with lawyers on a referendum.
Here’s a novel idea, why not check with your lawyer before starting a campaign for a referendum?
Both of these councillors are arguing for due diligence, but failing to do their own.
Rather than lead their constituents, we have leaders who hide behind them.
It’s not about the city, it’s about winning another election.

Does councillor writing ‘rogue’ LRT letter to province look bad?
