    Rob Ford's Toronto

    How do you draw this conclusion about Josh Matlow? From what I've seen Matlow is of the few councilors who has always expressed strong opposition to and openly confronted the Ford's BS. He's one of only a handful of councilors with common sense and a good head on this shoulders. DMW and Matlow...

    Distillery District

    I heard it was going to be a french restaurant as well. Very nice spare-no-expense interior. The fresh and wild space unfortunately is serving as a construction office for the time being. Guys working there (who may not have the inside scoop but did seem to know a fair bit) had not heard of any...

    TCHC: West Don Lands Affordable Housing (589 King St E, 2x 4 + 8s, Core Architects)

    Perhaps, but the buildings themselves at Regent Park weren't really that bad. Some of them were quite good. It was the overall plan and the organization of streets and common areas that caused the downfall. The UK and Holland have many scenic and vibrant communities that are comprised of...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    I don't buy this. The Ford's are victims only of their own stupid, mean, nasty nature. The same applies to Sewer Ann Levy and that tiresome bore Wormington. If I may, what I think you mean to say is that the Ford's manipulate their followers into believing that they are victims, when in fact...

    Toronto Fly Condos | ?m | 24s | Empire | Graziani + Corazza

    You've neglected to mention the fact that most of the Fly condo pre-sales occurred prior to the '08 blip, essentially rendering the blip irrelevant to their build-out plans. In fact it might have even saved them on construction costs. The crash in the US amounted to little more that a 3 or 4...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    I see your (and Euler's) point too, but when Doug tried to take over Waterfront Toronto it struck me as obvious that there had to be someone pulling his strings. I mean, Doug probably didn't know the Portlands even existed and yet he out of nowhere had all sorts of big designs on them. It was...

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    This is my thinking as well. After this much build-up, the police would look foolish if they weren't able to take the Ford's down hard. And when it happens it will be due cause to create a new civic holiday in commemoration - Schadenford Day? (credits to whomever coined the term).

    Rob Ford's Toronto

    The Ford's are clearly too stupid to be running any sort of serious crime syndicate, but that doesn't mean they aren't backed by big players. It would explain their brazen defiant attitude. Stooges planted in office, like George W. Bush to the republicans. Their smugness and bravado is boosted...

    Toronto Fort York Visitor Centre | ?m | 2s | Fort York Foundation | Patkau

    If you mean the Gated Fort York historic site on the grassy knoll on the southwest corner of the Bathurst Bridge, then you can rest assured that nothing will change at that site in our lifetimes. The remaining park will see improvements including the addition of the pedestrian bridge linking the...

    Alright, I'm in. Basic - Please put me down for March 21st as the possible day Ford goes down in a burning shitball of fire.

    NY Times Article about Toronto

    As a foreigner if you were invited into the home of a French, Italian, Moroccan - almost anywhere (except perhaps Britain), how do you imagine that family would welcome you to share their culture? Most likely it would be sharing the food and drink that is traditional to that region. Sounds good...

    If the Fords had their morality intact they would react to seeing their own shit-show something like this:

    This is an essential rebuttal to keep handy when debating with neocons.

    Toronto Waterworks Building Redevelopment | 47.55m | 13s | MOD Developments | Diamond Schmitt

    Any news on Richmond and Adelaide west of Spadina becoming two-way streets again? That would help to enliven this area.

    Banner ads interfering with page functionality

    The banner ads at the top of the page make it impossible to check the 'remember me' button, making it necessary to re log-in repeatedly. This is a nuisance. Can this be rectified, or is there another way to stay logged in please?

    If Ford hates the media so much, why does he work so hard at giving them content?
