With the decision to (hopefully) come soon on the stadium issue in Ottawa, here is your last chance to contact Ottawa City Council to show your support for Lansdowne Live and the return of CFL football to Ottawa:
I've been working Alex Cullen and Shad Quadry of late. Both have made comments about how Lansdowne is a poor site because it doesn't offer rapid transit. I pointed out that neither does Melnyk's plan, but that if they have a better idea for a stadium location, I'm interested in hearing where, and who will pay for it.
I find that last part gets ignored an awful lot. :-/
Did ou see Doucet's comment in yesterday's papers? "I'm now of the opinion that a stadium doesn't belong in Lansdowne Park". Lol...Shocker to everyone, I know...But at least he's stopped pretending otherwise. So I contacted him too to remind him that his personal opinion should not take priority over the 72% who named FCS a priority at Lansdowne Park during the Design Competition. You know, the Design Competition that Doucet himself keeps cramming down our throats...
I've spent the last hour individually e-mailing Ottawa City Council. Next I'm going to write my MP, Ottawa's MP's and the PMO. Let's show them we care dammit!
Go Ottawa Rough Riders! May the Glebes and Horn Chen burn in the lowest pits of hell forever
Excellent idea, I'd be down but too bad I'm going to school in London.
Already heard back from Bob Monette. He's a supporter, and asked me if I wanted to speak on the 20th. I'm living in London, so obviously can't make it, but if any of you guys ARE interested in speaking I'll send you my letter and you can see if there's anything in it that you could use.
