Minister John Baird Knocks Ottawa Councillor Marianne Wilkinson Down A Notch

Today the Ottawa Taxpayers’s Advocacy Group held an open forum for city council candidates.

Councillor Marianne Wilkinson from Kanata North took the liberty of giving a backhand remark about a federal proposal to ban dumping raw sewage into the Ottawa river.

When Minister John Baird got up he returned the favour by giving her a direct smack when he chastized Councillor Wilkinson for spending money on things like pedestrian bridges when they should be focussing on priorities such as stopping the dumping of sewage into the river.

The whole room erupted in applause showing where taxpayer priorities lie.

    It seems that Councillor Wilkinson doesn’t understand math. Without a public vote she claimed that her constituents were two-to-one in favor of a $2.6 million tax levy to bury 500 meters of hydro lines along Kanata Avenue in her ward. As a long time municipal politician she should have advertised and conducted a vote before thinking her constituents would overlook such a gaffe and declaring her candidacy in the 2010 City of Ottawa election.
