Choo talking to me?

Contrary to the opinion of London Free Press reader John V. Day of London, the "lack of consultants" in any political decision is almost never a "cause for concern" … unless one happens to be a consultant or desperately trying to become one, of course.

As exhibit of the latter, the very top story in the broadsheet edition of today's Free Press is Urban League of London chairman Stephen Turner's criticism of Council's decision Monday to postpone making a decision on implementation of a green bin program until a new study has been contrived. The Urban League of London is entitled as anyone to hold a recklessly wrong opinion, but Mr. Turner ought to consider the benefits of being repeatedly recruited as an arbitrary and un-credentialed consultant by both the City and the Free Press for at least a few more months.
