You’re a Mean One, City Hall
When Hamilton’s schools close, the children play. Building snow forts that serve as temporary dream lands, our children fight bad guys, defend their castles, or just have an old-fashioned snowball fight.
Hamilton City Council announced that all snow forts on city property will be demolished promptly. “This is not only an issue of public safety, it’s a chance for the Public Works department to prove itself again,” says City Manager, Horice Greenwater. “We’re not trying to be monsters here, we just have to honour our rich history, as a city, to tear down buildings – snow or not.”
McHattie: Forts Should Have Temporary Heritage Status
Brian McHattie was incensed: “Some of these igloos the children make are architectural wonders. They should have a temporary heritage building designation, at the very least.”
Ironically, Bob Bratina was absent from the meeting, busy making snow forts for a photo op with elementary students. When he received the call he had no choice: “I had to tear down the fort we just made. It was embarrassing, but also fun. Listen, the best city to raise your children always puts safety first.”
The best city to raise your children now has a lot of work to do to fix this public relations disaster.
