OK but how about we turn this argument around: If we had leadership capable of looking at the deep bore tunnel project, seeing it for the dog that it is and shutting it down, wouldn't we be more likely to trust them with another project? It's the continued lying, obfuscation and complete refusal to own up to past mistakes that's dooming future projects, not the fact that this one isn't working out so well. Prove that we can trust you, Mayor Murray, and we just might.

I refuse to use them. If anyone ever asks "Why not?", I respond, "I'll use them when you give me a 5% discount."

Screw the budget, I want to see the attendee list. $50 says David Sabey is on it.

Or hike the cable pools below Capilano dam. Then go to the Edgemont Village for brunch. Then to Lynn Canyon for a swim (beautiful but cold). Then to one of the great Greek restaurants on Marine Drive. Then to a pub like the Queen's Cross for beer.

I vote for "stupid hillbilly tires".

Studded tires are illegal in Massachusetts where they get a lot more ice and snow than we do. Just saying.

Not sure I'd go as far as @2 or @5, but there's no mention in you report Dom of how the cyclist was behaving. I've seen plenty of cyclists on Capitol Hill sidewalks deserving of a punch in the face.

The classic race to the bottom. Because it's so much easier to pocket the money and complain about losing jobs/manufacturing/FX to China.
