It is a problem to photographically illustrate success in changing the attitude or perception of an intransigent government or bureaucracy. The mayor, council, and senior staff hastily called for an expensive historic 'planning Summit', which was held on April 1 & 2, 2005 at the Quality Inn Hotel on Ontario Street, St. Catharines! The historic 'Planning Summit Report' was officially ratified at council on May 2, 2005. Sadly the 'Planning Summit' produced NO 'Plans'! The 'Planning Summit Report', created by the City's brain trust, could only produce a common wish list. It is possible that the direct challenges and pressure applied by the Winners Circle had nothing to do with this hastily called historic 'Planning Session'! It is also possible that the 'Enough is Enough' rally had nothing to do with this sudden concern with the four (4) stated goals of our City Administration's 'Planning Summit Report'. To claim that this historic event was their original, independent and non-coerced idea, one would then have to ask, where have they been for so many years?
