Overlooked Good News Item of the Week

January 10, 2010

Councilman Case Ootes retires.

His ward 29 residents express surprise. They thought he died in 2002.

Upon announcing his retirement from politics, Case Ootes said his proudest accomplishment was working with then mayor, Mad Mel Lastman, on the amalgamation of seven governments into one.

Speaking on behalf of Torontonians city wide, I thank Mr. Ootes with all the facetiousness I can muster.

If I may paraphrase from the deep well of George W. Bush quotables: A heck of a job, Casey.
