EYCC Post Deferred

April 10, 2013

So the plan was to go up to the Etobicoke Civic Centre, take in the Etobicoke-York Community Council meeting which usually lasts a couple hours, head back downtown, drop into the Toronto-East York Community Council meeting which tends to last a little longer, come home, write up a post about them and Bob’s your uncle.

Only to find out that there was an additional evening session of the EYCC dealing with the highly contentious Mimico 20/20 development plan. So what to do? Take the hour, go back downtown for the afternoon and then head back up north, attend that meeting or I could just hang around Etobicoke for six hours, waiting…

But then…

Sue-Ann Levy got all snippy with me about a post I’d written, called me lazy and bitter, and I thought, I’ll show Sue-Ann who’s lazy. I’ll stay up here in Etobicoke all night if I have to, working this Community Council to the bone. That’ll show Sue-Ann.

And then the evening session started, and it went on for a really long time. A really, REALLY LONG TIME. ONE DEPUTANT AFTER ANOTHER. SOME HAPPY WITH THE PLAN, OTHERS NOT AT ALL HAPPY WITH IT BUT EVERYBODY WANTING TO HAVE THEIR 5 MINUTE SAY. SEVEN O’CLOCK BECAME EIGHT O’CLOCK. EIGHT O’CLOCK BECAME NINE O’CLOCK AND THEN TIME LOST ALL MEANING AND I’M THINKING, I HAVE TO WRITE A POST ABOUT THIS BUT THE PUBLIC WORKS AND INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE MEETING IS TOMORROW AND I STILL HAVE A TRIP BACK IN FROM ETOBICOKE AND THERE’S JUST NOT ENOUGH TIME TO WRITE WHAT I WANT TO WRITE HOW DO THE COUNCILLORS DO THIS ALL THE TIME AND MAYBE SUE-ANN’S RIGHT MAYBE I’M JUST LAZY AND MAYBE LORRIE GOLDSTEIN’S RIGHT AND I’M A BAD WRITER I MEAN LOOK WHAT I’M DOING RIGHT NOW GOING ALL META ON MYSELF…

So you will not get my report on the Etobicoke-York Community Council today. I’m deferring it until later in the week when the dust settles. The other committee meetings will be more manageable. Nothing contentious or of much importance ever happens at things like Public Works and Infrastructure, right?
