1. This outbreak is out of control. The CDC estimates over 500,000 cases by Christmas and the number of actual infections is vastly underestimated. Rather than downplaying the risk we should be educating the public to the fullest so that we are all prepared for the day it comes to our city, which it will, not scrambling in a mass panic after the fact.
  2. Ebola is not H1N1 and there is no vaccine, and whether we like it or not it is coming. A full scale public education campaign should be implemented ASAP and hopefully the strategies that were developed from SARS will be capable of keeping this virus from what we are seeing in West Africa, where the foolish and superstitious who ignored doctors and scientists, and the foolish and ignorant WHO and UN have perpetuated this outbreak to unimaginable proportions.
  3. Increasing the size of the government after an election promise of more responsible spending? I truly could never have imagined this ever happening.
  4. With all the recent stabbings in the GTA I'm surprised we haven't seen Adam Vaughan calling for an outright ban on stainless steel. At the very least a sword registry.
  5. @sarahC_1078 Actually, I was referring to occupying a seat with bags or appendages which is illegal on the ttc, ie. as displayed during this blitz in 2009.
  6. Those are actually spelled correctly for the Doug Ford supporters, not for the perfect grammar, university educated elitists who support John Tory.
  7. There are obviously major issues on the ttc regarding rider etiquette, from hogging a seat for a bag to sitting in the designated disabled seats. If certain behaviors are illegal then there should be a more visible display regarding these penalties on each bus, streetcar or subway car so riders can clearly see and understand these particular rules and fines. As well, more ttc constables should be on patrol in these problem routes during busy times of the day to make public examples of these people for all to see.
  8. Jeeeez! If this is a taste of what's to come then Jerry Springer should be moderating these debates.
