During Ottawa's 2008-2009 Bus Strike, Monette threatened legal action against Councillor Clive Doucet for speaking out against the city's bargaining strategy.
In March 2009, Monette attempted to block atheist slogans from being advertised on OC Transpo buses in an Ottawa City Council motion, despite the fact that such censorship would probably fail in a court challenge.
Bob Monette is firmly in favour of the Corridor 5 (Kettle Island) option for an interprovincial bridge between Ottawa and Gatineau. According to a report released by the consultants engaged to explore bridge options (www.ncrcrossings.ca), a bridge at Kettle Island would result in severe congestion at key intersections along Aviation Parkway for East-West traffic between Ottawa and Orleans.

Famous quotes containing the word controversy:
“Ours was a highly activist administration, with a lot of controversy involved ... but Im not sure that it would be inconsistent with my own political nature to do it differently if I had it to do all over again.”
—Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
“And therefore, as when there is a controversy in an account, the parties must by their own accord, set up for right Reason, the Reason of some Arbitrator, or Judge, to whose sentence, they will both stand, or their controversy must either come to blows, or be undecided, for want of a right Reason constituted by Nature; so is it also in all debates of what kind soever.”
—Thomas Hobbes (15791688)
