Asked if borrowing for the JLC and other projects had put the city into a hole, Coun. Fred Tranquilli, said: "There's no sense having good roads if you have nowhere to go."Apparently traveling to work, the garage and the grocery store means you are headed nowhere.
When giant potholes prevent Londoners from reaching the designated worship zones such as the JLC by car, the planned multi-million dollar subway system will ease the burden. All foreigners will be accompanied by guides at all times, along the only maintained, multiple lane road in town.
Drivers already rattled by London's moonscape streets better brace themselves -- rougher roads are ahead.Well, planned paradises cost money and taxpayers should stop complaining. It is not fiscally responsible to maintain the roads or the sewers when the reputation of the city is at stake! The JLC is more important than your car.
But the ability of council to do more is severely constrained, staff say, by a self-imposed $30-million cap on borrowing for capital projects.
