BALANCING ACT: Review city editor and Falls mayor debate merits of wire walk across Niagara Gorge
The Niagara Falls Review has a nice back-and-forth between their City Editor Corey Larocque and Mayor Jim Diodati:
Tightrope walker Nik Wallenda wants to walk a wire across the Niagara Gorge next summer, but the Niagara Parks Commission, whose approval he needs, is cold to the idea.
Mayor Jim Diodati is eager to see Wallenda get the green light. Diodati took the matter up with Premier Dalton McGuinty’s senior staff when the Ontario Liberals were in Niagara Falls on Saturday.
But The Review’s city editor Corey Larocque is skeptical about using Niagara Falls for this spectacle.
So, Diodati and Larocque recently hashed it out. This is an edited transcript of their debate.
