I actually kinda liked the Bratina that ran in the mayoral election. I mean, I voted for Fred but I wasn't to bothered when Bratina won. The guy who fought for the West Harbor stadium, the guy who talked about LRT, the guy who spitballed ideas out loud (often bad ones, I'll admit - like the A-line coming first, etc.) The indecisive guy who wanted to look at every single possibility and liked to talk.

I mean, he wasn't perfect, but I kind of understood him and liked him. He was a radio guy who didn't have a filter and just rambled his thoughts and kept discussion going and wanted to examine every possible option.

But that's not the mayor we got. We got a mayor who shows commitment to his worst ideas. A mayor who stuck to the cost-saving compromise stadium location after it turned out the savings wouldnt' materialize - who did a complete 180 on his discussions of LRT in a way that makes me suspicious of backroom deals with the Provincial Liberals.

It would take a lot for me to support this mayor again. Torpedoing the Aerotropolis would be a point in his favour, but he's at negative two or so for me right now.
