  1. Tim Hudak wants to take over the subway system in Toronto. He wants to run the mostly profitable lines while the TTC gets stuck with the less than profitable bus and streetcar lines. If the TTC loses control of the subway lines, there will be nothing subsidizing many of the bus and streetcar lines. Either fares will have to go up or bus lines will have to get cancelled or both.
  2. @earl In places where there is right-to-work for less, the non-unionized employees still receive the same benefits and protection from their unions as required by law. Essentially, the employees who opt out of paying dues are free-riding on the coat-tails of their unions. This adds costs to the unions as the remaining members are required to subsidize the free-riders. If a non-union member gets into legal labour difficulties, the union is still obligated to defend the non-dues paying employees.
  3. First point: if the Conservatives were in power right now, the same diamond lands for the Pan Am games would be proposed.

    Next point: why will some lanes on the 407 toll road being used as diamond lanes? Who will be paying to reserve a lane in each direction? The government/taxpayers?
  4. Teachers are not required to teach what is not listed in the curriculum. There is nothing in the curriculum which states that students must learn how to read and write using cursive.
  5. As an opponent of Tim Hudak, I don't trust him on his abandoning of the "right-to-work-for-less" promise. If he does become the next premier, he will implement it.
  6. This is a disgusting photo! Were those Hell's Angels guys in a drunken stupor?
  7. @Ian Torrie Even if Duffy, Wallin, and Brazeau get suspended from the Senate, the opposition will likely go after Senator Stward Olson next. Tom Mulcair and the NDP will definitely go after Harper's corrupt senate.
  8. Harper supports Russian show trials in the Senate.
  9. The current Sheppard subway line is under-used already. Rob Ford only wants a subway (which will never get funded) for Sheppard East just so that he can get votes.

    The current Sheppard subway is under-used. It runs less frequently than the subways on the Yonge-University-Spadina and Bloor-Danforth lines.

    From the time I arrive at the Don Mills station until the train actually leaves that station, it can take from five to ten minutes in walking and waiting time.
  10. I think that the provincial government will delay funding until the next council is elected in order to see if the next council will modified its stance on subways in Scarborough.
