Of Ottawa police chief Peter Sloly, and low-hanging fruit.

My main takeaway from the podcasted train wreck of a plane crash of a dumpster fire of the police services meeting last night was that Peter Sloly was just so overwhelmed by the sheer volume of lawbreakery that he was purely paralyzed, either by outright amount or ineptness or incompetence or utter lack of interest of whatever, it doesn't really matter, but the message was clear -- there weren't enough cops to deal with it all, so why even start? And here's where I'm going to give Sloly a simple, clear and unambiguous task for his TODO list that even he should be able to complete.

During my travels over the last several days, I have confirmed that there are two monstrous, convoy-related rigs parked right in front of the Days Inn on Rideau St, corner of Rideau and King Edward. There is no question they have been there for several days and, in that entire time, have not moved. They have simply parked themselves in the right-hand lane of Rideau facing the Hill, obstructing the bus lane and forcing everyone heading in that direction on Rideau to merge into the left-hand lane to go around them.

There are clearly "2-hour" parking signs there and I am willing to be corrected, but it seems that there are at least a couple parking bylaws being violated here, so one can make this modest proposal to Chief Sloly: If you are utterly incapable of grasping, comprehending and managing the big picture, then start small -- deal with those two rigs on Rideau. That's all, I'm not suggesting anything more than seeing if your overpaid, Nazi-friendly, racist-fist bumping police force is up to the job of dealing with two trucks.

I don't want to put too much on your plate all at once, so how about we start small and see if you can handle that? In my business, we call that demonstrating "proof of concept." So, there you go. Let us know how that works out.
