This is fantastic news! When the logic and intelligence of Sammy M and Bobby B prevail, you just know that our mediocre future is just around the corner.

In all seriousness, we will have to see what actually happens in these last few days, but if you ever wanted to know why Hamilton is always talking about potential, but never achieving it, look no further than the decision that was made at City Hall today.

It’s not that we don’t have the money to spend, we do. We spend hundreds of millions every year. It’s how we spend out money - Signing blank cheques for projects that achieve very little and have no inspired vision. Heck, they aren’t even risk adverse. They are willing to go against all the best evidence (that they paid for themselves) and pour the city’s saving into a plan that has giant red flags all over the place. It’s also not a matter of a grand plan that they have developed, and have confidence in (unless you take Bratina’s mantra of “Save the Ticats, don’t raise taxes” as our civic guiding light). Whether you agree or not with the outcome of the vote today, their decision-making makes no sense.

I can only conclude that there is an element of idiocy in this – literally, the definition of idiocy is, “utterly senseless or foolish behavior; a stupid or foolish act, statement, etc.”
