    PM Justin Trudeau's Canada

    Sounds unconstitutional....it will be interesting to see if that stands up to a court challenge.

    Toronto Police Service Reformation

    That's incredibly lazy reasoning. Correlation is not causation. We've had record breaking gun/gang crime years when carding was still in place, and there's absolutely zero reason to believe the lack of it had anything to do with the spike last year. We already know the gun problem is...

    Rail Deck Park (?, ?, ?)

    I think he likely realizes that he hasn't done much for this city other than being a relatively steady hand. A step above the previous mayor for sure, but ultimately forgettable. He wants a legacy that will be remembered.

    There is such a thing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-libertarianism I agree though....any religious/social conservative who votes for Bernier is going to be very disappointed. That's not what he is at all.

    2018 Municipal Election: Toronto Council Races

    Well']Well[/URL] said Chretien and crew. Caroline Mulroney can't be wearing this easily. But there in no easy choices, either resign or stick with it and try to influence positive change or policy. Assuming she's made any effort to influence Ford against this bone headed and frivolous use of...

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    So what is it with this international plowing match? If having a 25 member council is important enough to Ford to use the NW clause, but they're all still heading to the plowing match instead of working to pass this bill, it must be a pretty bid deal.... Also, when I went to google...

    Looks like the Star is reporting that this isn't over yet as well: https://www.thestar.com/news/toronto-election/2018/09/13/toronto-city-council-holding-emergency-meeting-after-province-revives-bill-to-cut-council.html

    2018 Municipal Election: Toronto Council Races

    What Miscreant said. The experts made their determination after detailed study and consultation and I trust those determination more than my uninformed opinion. It just so happens that they agree, so I haven't dug too much deeper. It follows logically though, that if you believe that being...

    No. There's a difference between calling to have a specific pot hole fixed (311), and having a conversation with your councillor because you feel that the city is falling too far behind on road repair.

    Also a splash of cold water on anyone outside of Toronto who has brushed this off as just a Toronto problem. Now everyone gets to worry about their local democracy being demolished.

    2018 Municipal Election: Toronto Council Races

    The first and most important job of a politician, especially at a local level is representing their constituents. If i have an issue with city governance, i want to talk to my elected politician, not a bureaucrat. If city councilors are to act as managers, we need elected community councils at...

    2018 Municipal Election: Toronto Council Races

    The 44 ward system was not representative of Toronto's population. It gave disproportionate weight to suburban wards. There were extensive consultations and subsequent challenges where the 47 ward system won out as the best option. I choose to trust the judement of the experts and judges we...

    2018 Municipal Election: Toronto Council Races

    If your boss doubled the amount of work you have to do every day, how effective would you be?

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    Doesn't matter if the chance of winning is nearly zero. After today's nonsense, anyone who wants to try for it has my full support.
