@ AnneMariePavlov - Then the majority of people that voted for Dianni as mayor would at least see that he had the power to make things happen. He could get things done and be judged accordingly at the next election. He could lead and be held accountable. And so would the next mayor and the one after that...

It could give more imortance to going to vote with the knowledge that our Mayor is going to have more power. Make the right choice.

You are right Hunter, if the Mayor had this kind of power, we probably would have a better example of the kind of leader they actually are.

If you are going to put someone in a leadership role, give them the proper tools to be a leader.

The four traits of effective leaders: Listen, Encourage, Assert, Decisive. On the latter, "They know what needs to be done and they make timely, even difficult, decisions when neccessary. But they can also take charge without running over the people in their lives"

How can our mayor achieve this last trait, if the only time he really get's to be Decisive, is on a tie vote. All he really has is his opinion. Other than that, as is evident in Ryan's interview, all he can do is sit with his head in his hands and try his best to hide his frustrations.

One (of the many) thing(s) the new proposed site doesn't have, is access to the proposed LRT. And what is bus service like out there? Last time I took a Stonechurch bus they ran like every hour? Guess I won't be having one too many wobbly pops and then grabbing a $10 taxi downtown from IWS, or walking from a waterfront location.

Looks like we'll need a power boat to get up there actually. Or a canoe and really strong arms.
