A bridge too far, and far too long

- February 2nd, 2012

I have devoted a lot of words to the Peace Bridge. The price tag. The process — the horrible, horrible process. The bad placement. The contravention of policy. The delays.

I had honestly thought we all could have moved on to something else by now.

But I was so very wrong.

It was supposed to be finished in the fall of 2010. It is now February 2012. Fitting this thing has a Groundhog Day sort of repetition.

A pedestrian bridge, approved in the fall of 2008, still not done.

And while we have been told the taxpayer won’t bear any additional cost from this deal, surely the delays are costing somebody. Who would want to eat that kind of expense as a business, when they could try to stick it to the city?

    Why are people apathetic about politics, exorcislly at the municipal level? Oh right, the idiocy
