Which is the most offensive and harmful of Mr. Whitehead's behaviours? To me, this is when he makes up bare-faced lies to impugn the competence and professionalism of City staff. For example, consider all Mr. Whitehead's many lies and falsehoods about the Herkimer and Charlton bicycle lanes that I took the time to document. In my opinion, the most offensive of these lies is when he falsely claimed that City staff did not consult with waste collection, snow removal or other functions.

Right now, I am looking out the window at steadily falling snow. Not surprising for February. Consider Mr. Whitehead's claim that "Snow removal completely paralyzes the lane... Now I know that Waste don't support it, I know that Snow Removal don't support it."

Asserting that those City functions "don't support it" was a lie; they were consulted and did support the design. And we can now see a certain lack of paralysis as the snow removal personnel do their job. So it looks like all the City staff competently did their jobs.

Unfortunately, I must agree with the final quote from Joey Coleman. In today's age of "click-bait" driven media, we are unlikely to see a front-page article headlined, "City Staff Competently do their Jobs."
