Mayoralty Comedy In Ottawa

Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.
Romans, 12:17, NRSV

It is the usual course of the Oracle of Ottawa to only engage in the deeper social issues in the medium of this awesome blog, that is loved, bookmarked and read very often, from all over the world. But there are occasions and events in the the Oracle of Ottawa's patch that he just has to pile on, so to speak.

It all started on the local old style vulgar media supper news on the CBC, whereupon the Mayor of Ottawa, at the time of this writing, was big as life on the Oracles big screen Sony in full 1080i HD stating that forthwith, he was going to start a war on various "eyesore" buildings located in the present boundaries of the City of Ottawa, Canada's Nations Capital. The ever friendly mayor rather shocked the Oracle of Ottawa by actually pointing out one building, that shall remain nameless, located in the Market area of Ottawa, otherwise known as the slums. The Oracle of Ottawa smiled and continued on with dinner. Good luck with that your worship...

Proposed "eyesores" don't count in Ottawa?...
 Zoom ahead to later on in the week and sure enough there is the vital little mayor on my suppertime news yet again, and this time in a most agitated state, stating most emphatically that he and any of his right bowers would never be intimidated by the threats of legal action by the present stakeholders and taxpayers of the fine City of Ottawa. The Oracle of Ottawa laughed so hard that he just about toppled off his very comfortable sofa. It seemed that the a certain developer, that just happened to be the owner of one of the mentioned "eyesores", started the litigious legal paper flying, with some it landing (served?) at the doorstep of the present Mayor of Ottawa!

The Oracle of Ottawa just loved it! Just revelled in the stinking hypocrisy of the whole event. It is no problem at the present, at the City of Ottawa, for a dismissed employee to be sued by the City Legal Department months after being fired for bogus overpayment of wages! These amounts start at over $70,000 and will continually drop until the desired action is taken by the former employee! If you don't believe the Oracle of Ottawa just call 311 or CUPE-503 and ask for yourself! Its your dime my fellow citizen. You can ask all the questions you like. 

What really choked the Oracle of Ottawa's chicken is that the likes of the present mayor of Ottawa, at the time of this writing, should think that he can take it on himself to publicly condemn someones property as an "eyesore" using that taxpayers own money against him, and yet allow plastic shoebox condos and certain American big box stores down in Landsdowne Park! And an even bigger "eyesore" plan of the present Mayor of Ottawa, at the time of this writing, of that sole sourced casino to be located in the area of downtown Ottawa! Complete with a possible army of Temporary Foreign Workers! It seems that the Mayor has a real thing against your "eyesores", but alas not his...
  

A laugh a minute, especially at the end...
