    it's not even a page, it's set up as an event. Weird.

    Well, I've been praying about it.

    Ford campaigned on a Sheppard subway, and Frank has bought land along there near Scarborough, hoping the prices will go up. We're depending on that. Besides, I have to often go out and see my mother out on Rathburn and I hate getting pinched and sliding around on the bus. The tabernacle will be praying for replacement politicians if subways aren't delivered as promised under every major road in this city.

    LRT's, sound sneaky, like some kind of medical procedure. Gliding along like snakes on those deceptive tracks of theirs. I've heard that they make hissing noises, and are used in socialist countries.

    We shouldn't be shying away from getting shovels in the ground now on a massive project that will guarantee our grandchildren and their children's children will be working damn hard to see completed. They'll be grateful for the work load, and it would bring some character back into this loose country of ours to understand a real obligation. In fact, there's no reason why incorrigibles couldn't be hired to help dig the tunnels.
    For real - though I have my doubts - it's way too funny for one to be taken seriously.

    Fakebook is complete garbage. It is now extremist fascist troll central. Here are some obligatory comic strips to express my sentiment.



    These are from Zits. Mr. Mammoth Head needs to look at his mirror. No wonder why Mr. Mammoth Head is nicknamed "Il Duce." Fakebook is just a website that collects factless ad hominem rants.

    Here is the full journal article on this study: http://pss.sagepub.com/content/23/2/187.full.pdf+html

    The Fraud Brothers and Il Duce Giorgio Mammoth Head should read the article. This will make Mr. Mammoth Head wish he continued as a member of the NDP, especially given that a peer-reviewed article published in a reputable academic journal had found a strong correlation between low intelligence and right-wing ideologies. I agree with the results of this journal article, though it is ironic that this article can be shared to Fakebook, the bastion of collective human stupidity.

    If the Fords can and do read that article, I imagine they'll try to get their Council Clowns to fire you, me, and all academic researchers for disrespecting the mayor's office.

    What if Mayor Ford suddenly gave up the Sheppard subway and pushed hard for the DRL? It would be a subway - and would make for a better conversation.

    I think we all agreed DRL should be the priority. I would support the act, not the person - and I think it would be prudent to look very, very carefully at the fine print should that scenario arise.

    Yes. I guess what I was getting at is, could that change the reelection ballgame for Ford? Support the act, yes, but enough people might be swayed, no?

    Josh Matlow is definitely pushing for a DRL, as are a few other members of council. If Ford stops his act and works with council, pushing the proposal forward can probably begin sometime later this year or the next.

    Ford wouldn't push for the DRL, and certainly wouldn't jeopardize his tax-fighting reputation endorsing new revenue streams to build it. It would be viewed by the Ford constituency as more money going towards downtown while the suburbs get ignored.

    No, it isn't--or at least because of its structure, it doesn't have to be. Besides, for every I Hate The War On Rob Ford page, there's a Stop Ford From Destroying This City page. Facebook is only what you want it to be, or fashion it to be--and you're a lot more "empowered" to fashion it to your needs than through traditional media...
