    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    What I see in Gil's platform is that he is against the way Toronto tried to remove park encampents and he plans both to create more long term housing and to improve the shelter system within the first 100 days to get people out of the parks. Since we still have people living in tents in parks...

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    It would be interesting to see whether there is a statistical difference in the percentage of completed applications from different municipalities.

    Adam Chaleff has filed an integrity complaint against John Tory.

    2022 election - who is running for mayor?

    I think we have seen that they are willing to have taxpayer money spent if it means that they get to keep or expand their lanes. The Scarborough subway, moving more of the Eglinton LRT below ground, even taking out the Jarvis bike lanes and putting the separated lanes on Sherbourne were all part...

    What's the future for the Conservative Party?

    The memberships they were selling weren't to a big game of Twister. Raising money under the pretext of letting members vote if that isn't what membership buys you seems unethical. From the Star story: Is this saying that Brown's members won't be able to vote, or just that Charest can't assume...

    What's the future for the Conservative Party?

    So ... is Patrick Brown incapable of behaving himself so that he always has a scandal that forces him out of the Conservative party races, or are the Conservatives constantly unscrupulously using dirty tricks to force him out? It feels really strange that the scandal that forced him out as...

    St Lawrence Market

    I didn't think the survey was particularly extensive -- rank your top three preferences for each park, asked 2 different ways and then something about safety. I don't think that necessarily means that they will try to have too much going on, they are just trying to get enough information to make...

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    They were talking not that long ago about winterizing park bathrooms. Is that in progress (and if so what is the status) or did the antis prevent it from going ahead? Unless and until the bathrooms are winterized, I understand that they can't turn the plumbing on until the risk of freezing is...

    St Lawrence Market

    When I was out for my evening walk there were signs posted about a survey re 2 new parks in what they described as the "North St Lawrence" neighbourhood. One will be on the north side of Richmond between Sherbourne and Ontario (opening 2025). The smaller one will be on the north side of King...

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    I'm not sure I understand your point -- who does the community council work today if not the elected councillors who represent that area of the city? How are they selected/hired? And what constitutes the "busy work" that should be delegated to them instead of to staff in the councillor's office?

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    I agree that many people will appreciate the money, but those who have been going to the office may not be that comfortable renewing online. Hassle is at best a wash.

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    Since renewal is still required, I don't see where the hassle is significantly reduced for me. The most onerous part is remembering to make a note of the odometer reading. Plus after all the reminders that there would be no amnesty for renewal fees deferred during the pandemic they are going to...

    St Lawrence Market

    Because pedestrians are crossing there rather than at either of those intersections? When is the YPT expecting to reopen? That seems like it might increase foot traffic.

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    Does Doug ever employ any tactic other than demand that the federal government make up the shortfall?

    St Lawrence Market

    So disappointed -- noticed Cannabis mentioned on signs in the window of the ex Starbucks on the southeast corner of King and Sherbourne.

    St Lawrence Market

    The survey doesn't appear to ask which option you prefer -- rather it asks for thumbs up/thumbs down on separate components of each option. I wish they had at least asked for a 3 or 5 point scale rather than binary up/down but I can't see how they are evaluating each option as an option if the...

    I don't even find it dark?

    St Lawrence Market

    I don't have any hesitation walking through as a lone woman, so I haven't noticed that it seems dark or intimidating. It's wide enough that I don't feel like it is enclosed or isolated. And the people don't strike me as more concerning than those I might see on Front or Queen or Sherbourne. Is...

    2022 Municipal Election: Council Races

    As recently as this summer, Jennifer Keesmaat has said that she doesn't intend to run. I hope Tory won't run again . . . he was a better option than Doug Ford at the time but possibly only in the sense that DF is super-aggressively terrible and Tory tries to soft-pedal the terrible things he...
