Thinking back to the quasi-disaster known as the Rideau sinkhole, no one is that surprised by Monday's news that Rideau Transit Group (RTG) will miss its Nov. 2 deadline to deliver the Confederation Line to the city.

What people will question is why council didn't know earlier that RTG would miss a deadline that's now less than two months away.

That suddenly makes the LRT an election issue.
