    2018 Ontario Provincial Election Discussion

    I was just watching the California Election and they have a "Jumbo election" where you can have multiple candidates (from the same party) and the top two overall have a run off. THAT has it faults but STILL way better then we have. I will never understand how we don't have Ranked ballots...

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    This reminds me of a conversation I saw with Ford supporters online -Ford supporter "I like Doug because he's a business man, and can run the province like a business" -Normal person "I heard Rob wife give numbers that he's running his company into the group, it's losing money while he is...

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    HAHAHAHAHAHA Kind of like Trump supporters say. No we are not racists we have "economic anxiety" Conservatives had a chance to vote for a couple of qualified people. Disagree with their politics but their not scum bags. Instead you purposely went for the most unqualified jerk they can find.

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    Many thought Transit city was a done deal too. Conservatives don't give a shit about the debt. They only claim to care about it when the other side is in power, Get ready for shady deals in Ford land. This is a disaster.

    2018 Ontario Provincial Election Discussion

    That what I feel. A Democracy can be a bit of a see-saw and I can live with a PC government, but to select of all people a Ford is beyond sickening. He represents the worst in people. Just a slimy opportunist. I hate to blame voters, but there is something seriously wrong in the conservative...

    Well nothing says "man" like launching your campaign from your mom's basement

    2018 Ontario Provincial Election Discussion

    I still would consider the PC the odds on favorite to get more seats (I do think NDP might get a bigger voter percentage) I personally don't take Ipsos polls into consideration. In 2014 Ipsos final poll had a 3-way tie with L-33, C-31, L-30, which got a lot of attention in the media because it...

    TTC: New Fare Gate Installation

    I am still a Presto hold out and walking around with my tokens. Coming home from a boxing event at the ACC (fun event BTW) and to my surprise I crash into fare gate as there was nowhere to put in my token. I will adapt but I am pretty sure my parents would have no idea how to use a Presto card...

    2018 Ontario Provincial Election Discussion

    Haven't been on in a while. My prediction of the 2014 election was pretty close in the percentage. I predicted Lib-38%, PC-33%, NDP-23%, Green-5% (actual results L-39, C-31, N-24, G-5) My formula is to take the top 4 polls from the last election and average it out with weight on who had most...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    The similarities of Trump and Ford in how they campaign is freakish. Their supporters as well. It's not that their supporters support a policy I disagree with. They don't seem to care about policy. It's more about "I want to support a giant blow hard" It doesn't matter how illogical it is, or...

    Taxis and ride-sharing in Toronto

    Watched South Park last night, they had a hilarious take on the Taxi vs Uber situation. It's pretty hilarious, it's right on the money on what is happening here.

    2015 Federal Election

    I will always think *almost* anything can happen. But none of the seat prediction sites I visit has the CPC on the lead . 2ClosetoCall has it a virtual tie but it is a couple of weeks old. Lispop, who does a great job and Global news uses them a lot has NDP leading by 20 (134 to 116) and the...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    A large number of that hashtag is people mocking it. But the ones who are serious, it always amazes me what kind of nutbars Conservatives latch on to. I know some Conservatives are going to say "Hey lefties are over-the-top as well" Which is true the difference is we don't praise them or make...

    2015 Federal Election

    Yeah I am not a big fan of Nanos formula either, every poll average out for the entire month, so you aren't really get a "snap shot" But I have to give credit where it due, they did very well in the last fed election so I have to give them the benefit of the doubt even though their numbers are...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    The term "no sh*t" comes to mind . o_O Etobicoke base, right-wing, hypocritical, ill-informed. douchbag. Fits the Ford demo I have a question, why do we threaten teenagers for harassment for FHRITP (or kissing a reporter on the cheek) but an old fart calling people piece of sh*t in public seems...

    2015 Federal Election

    I made a calculation mistake in my previous post. My total should be CPC 30, NDP 32, Lib 28, Blc 04 , and Grn 05 New polls came out today Nanos has CPC 32, NDP & Lib at 29, BQ % Greens at 5%. Abacus has CPC 29, NDP 35, Lib 26, BQ 03 and Green 06. Adding these two new polls with Ipsos (Aug 10)...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    I was flipping through CP2Ford and saw Warmington on it saying that, and that's obviously the first thing that crossed my mind. I thought it would be obvious to everybody except Worms and LeDrew.

    2015 Federal Election

    Some new polls just came out in the last few days. On Friday Mainstreet came out. Which I personally find sketchy and I am not sure why 308 puts so much weight on what they say considering this is their first polling ever for a federal election. They have no track record to speak of federally...

    2015 Federal Election

    So some new numbers have come in before the weekend. Forum is at it again, but this time there numbers are much more consistent of the trend before last week. Current poll has NDP at 34% and CPC and Libs tied 27%, with BQ at 7% and Green at 5% respectfully. Ekos is also in on the action before...

    2015 Federal Election

    I heard some spin that as well. That drives me crazy. So if the economy is good they will take credit. But if the economy tanks they will spin it that "You need stability". Either way you need them and they win. Errr I also can't stand the "He's not ready" ads. I am surprised people think...
