When dictators in totally Soviet states are nearly dead, the news always goes quiet. Once in a while, they feel obligated to prop up the body for a photo op. Yes, the Glorious Dictator is still alive!, the state media puts out. But we know he's dead.
And so, in Ontariostan, we have to do the same thing. In this case, it's the Niagara Tunnel, and I've been saying it's dead for a long time, and the body is starting to rot. My main reasoning lies with the fact that all technical news has been suppressed by the Information Bureau of the State Energy Commission. Now, however, they feel obligated to trot out the body.
They have recently updated the Updated label on the web site! But they have added no news whatsoever! I think General Franco's guys did a better job. They are just going to close the tunnel up, and pretend it never happened...
