Why Saskatoon is so great

In a lot of cities, politicians are unreachable and need to be lobbied.  Saskatoon isn’t like that as we have a culture of approachable politicians at the civic and provincial level.  How approachable are they?  Well some even troll citizens.  Check out this tweet by my city councillor.

Of course the background was that I have been criticizing council (and Darren Hill) for voting for six lanes on the bridge when the city’s own report says it isn’t going to be necessary.  We have been taking lots of shots at him (and others) on Twitter and in person for the bridge and last night he replied with that tweet which made me burst out laughing.

Some politicians take their jobs and their positions very seriously but its good to see some of them being able to laugh and make fun of themselves and in their case, troll those that disagree with them, even if the 6 lane North Commuter Bridge is still a bad idea.

These were some of the replies
