Rob Ford’s 911 problem

Tweet

Classy! (Photo from Dammit Janet.)

There’s something wrong with Rob Ford. We all know he’s trash. But there’s an undercurrent of rage surrounding the man that’s almost Alec Baldwinish. Marg Delahunty is one thing; drunken threats another.

On Christmas, Ford’s mother-in-law called police between 4 and 5 a.m. to report that the mayor had been drinking . . . → Read More: Rob Ford’s 911 problem

Team Ford’s malignancy: It’s not just the Jarvis bike lanes | #TOpoli #bikeTO

Tweet

By now so much has been written and blogged and tweeted about yesterday’s clusterfuck at Toronto Council that there’s no point in rehashing it. Go read Matt Elliott’s summary at Ford For Toronto if you want a recap.

For Christ’s sakes. This isn’t just about the lack of any coherent policy justification, or the Machiavellian political . . . → Read More: Team Ford’s malignancy: It’s not just the Jarvis bike lanes | #TOpoli #bikeTO

Roger Ebert takes on Rob Ford … again

Tweet

I love Roger Ebert. I liked him as a reviewer of movies – he was lucid, thoughtful and never gave away the plot or ending (hear that, Peter Howell). But as a political observer, he is unparalleled. He just devastates everyone and everything in his path. Not with malice but with heart. He . . . → Read More: Roger Ebert takes on Rob Ford … again

Some Last Minute Election “Thoughts” From Family Values Dodo Can’t Spell

Tweet

Ok, “thoughts”, perhaps a bad choice of words, since Maria S  Nunes AKA “Dodo” is clearly incapable of thought: we’d feel the earthquake all the way here in Montreal, hell, I think my co-blogger, Logan in China would feel it! You see, boys ‘n’ girls, Dodo, in addition to being Islamophobic, also appears . . . → Read More: Some Last Minute Election “Thoughts” From Family Values Dodo Can’t Spell

Don’t Forget To Vote Tomorrow!

Tweet

I’ve always believed that if you don’t vote, you forfeit your right to bitch.  Tomorrow, municipal elections are happening; Ottawa, where the wingnut Larry O’Brien is sure to lose, thank gawd the folks in our nation’s capital are coming to their senses, or appear to be anyway (it remains to be seen if . . . → Read More: Don’t Forget To Vote Tomorrow!

Dr. Dawg: ‘Toronto the Police State’ (and beyond)

Tweet

Dr. Dawg has been doing a yeoman’s job of exposing the horrors of the post G20 police state of Toronto. Run don’t walk to Dawg’s Blawg for a sobering 15-minute video of what has become of Toronto.

Myself, I don’t think the police state is relegated to Toronto. Under the Conservative government, the violence . . . → Read More: Dr. Dawg: ‘Toronto the Police State’ (and beyond)

Sorry Folks, Get Out of Town, Steve Thinks You’re Just Too Dangerous For His Pow-Wow

Tweet

Well, since the week-end of June 25 -27, the week-end of the G20 summit,  is also a long week-end to Quebecers, they should perhaps reconsider going to Toronto if they were planning to visit. The CN tower will be closed and security all over the city tightened.
