Star Protects Eddie's Sensibilities
It might have ruined Eddie's weekend!
In this way it appears, since the Mayor as well as most people in Windsor get their news information from the Star, we are spared a few more days of angst about what is going on with the border file. Mind you, CKLW did post something about this on their website on Friday. I assume that was done to give Lisa Williams extra time to prepare her hard-hitting questions for the Mayor on the CKLW interview show on Tuesday morning.
The Mayor must be livid. I wonder if he expected the filing or thought that DRIC was going to negotiate more with him. There is a rumour that another Greenlink proposal was put forward by the Mayor, Greenlink: the Next Generation, but that it too was rejected. If true, it would be fascinating to see what was proposed this time around.
Effectively, DRIC called Eddie's bluff! Given what Eddie said about the Premier prejudicing the DRIC process, he does not have a year of options but rather must commence his lawsuit immediately.
Given how much our Mayor would love to be a witness in a lawsuit and is eager to be cross-examined, I doubt that will happen. Lots of talk from the City but little action. The Mayor and Councillors can read the polls and know that there is no stomach in this City for a lawsuit that will delay thousands of jobs being created and also could result in the Senior Levels leaving town.
I have also posted the DRIC backgrounder that you can view at the following site:
