The Ottawa We Want Wiki
Advertisement

The political element as we tread the path to a new Ottawa is an intriguing one. One the one hand, we see widespread cynicism directed not only at politicians but the political process generally. On the other, a kind of abdication of responsibility, the 'let them handle it" syndrome, as is mentioned in the article. But there is a glimmer of hope in some of the sustainability initiatives we see sprouting up around the city. There are people around town who are just getting down and doing it, not waiting for someone up there to tell them what to do nor how to go about it. This is the kind of spirit and initiative that needs to be cultivated and, who knows?, perhaps it will become contagious. --JohnSDavidson 13:14, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
