Boris Johnson joined the party in more ways than one and now it seems that our Kingston Mayor and City Councillors, fronted by Chrystal Wilson, have found that looking the other way may solve problems.

I do not believe that anyone would be against providing habitation for the homeless, it would be comparable to petitioning against Motherhood, but it is the fanfare of Good Deeds without the necessary background checks and forward planning that is irritating. As stated at the meeting, no solution to the problem of relocating the sleeping huts has been found since last Fall and are we to believe that a solution will be found in the next month?

Surely the Mayor and City Councillors must admit that Kingstonians have been misled, either unintentionally or intentionally, in believing that the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour site was to be a temporary location.
