Re: “Peter Kelly wears the sewage disaster

Wasn't this plant twice as expensive as a solar aquatics system? Besides being cheaper it was a decentralized solution, far less likely to fail in such a catastrophic way.

Hopefully this will be Kelly's last term!

Re: “hbus, the transit day tripper

From an economic development perspective, we're providing a government monopoly to a foreign, multi-billion dollar advertising company while shutting out a small local competitor.

Dr. Fever, it is issmat that got it right.

-It is Lachance that is doing all the work - I provide only encouragement.

-MT is *not* creating something new, but using Google's proprietary software. They told me they couldn't give me the data because they had a $20k contract with a company to build one; that obviously failed.

-The reason many recommendations are wrong is almost certainly due to lack of data, something MT could fix easily by opening up their data.

Google Transit does not always give proper recommendations either. Some competition (on a level playing field) would let transit users choose the most accurate system.

MT provides Google a URL (web address) where they can download the most recent data. That's all Lachance needs to know. Making that URL public would take less work than making excuses or answering a single email. The resulting competition would benefit us all.
