    Step one for downtown…have things opened past 3pm

    This is going to be a failure all around.

      @Fiivemacs @NotSteve_ How can this fail? It has all the earmarks of success: A commissioner who recruits ambassadors and then writes reports.

      When you think about it, this is exactly how a city that doesn’t know how to have fun would plan to be a city that has fun - through strict bureaucracy.

      That’d be nice wouldn’t it? I live in Centretown but even it makes me feel like I’m still living in my small hometown. Ottawa’s not a huge city but things should be open later, even on Sundays damn it

        What do you consider a huge city? Doesn’t Ottawa have over a million people living in it now? It’s kind of spread out over a large area I guess…

            Sorry who is underselling the sprawl? That’s a really neat image thank you for sharing

              Just wanted to hit the point harder since it’s not kind of spread out, it’s super spread out. Which is super frustrating because it’s causing a lot of issues.

    Guy should really lean into the “night mayor” moniker. Just show up at bars around town in some sort of costume just yelling at people “I AM THE NIGHT MAYOR!” in his best batman voice.

    Otherwise the job just seem like a bit of a… night-mare? 😁
