    What astounds me is Cressy's genuflecting to 'royalty' on this. Grovelling might be a more apt word. Even kiss-ass or licking. I note that the TTC is clearly upset. How's this City Hall? Take a plebiscite or even a quick poll to see what "People Are King" think about it? I can already guess...overwhelmingly.

    No-one begrudges TIFF (Thankgod It's Fffing Friday) their little flash bash, just not on the the most used surface route, and the third largest route overall in Toronto, and on a working day.

    When the mayor's spouse is on TIFF's board, what else would you expect?

    Anyway, TIFF has to find a way for their their sponsors to promote their luxury cars and cosmetic products.

    Indeed, can't have the Hoi Polloi ruining the flash-fest, Darling...I suspect a growing ground-swell of nastiness on this, and rightly so.

    Are you sure his wife is on the board? I don't think this is the case

    I believe it is actually his sister, Jennifer Tory, who is Vice Chair of the board.

    ^Unanimous so far, so let's flip this over: Anyone make any *rational* sense of this?

    John Tory may well lose my vote because of this, and the massive number of subway closures on Line 1 from St Clair to Lawrence planned this year.

    Well, unless line ups, patios, and the red carpet move to the side streets, this will need all of King Street.

    But I completely agree that is is unacceptable.

    Oh! You were able to get Hogwarts Magically Transformation and Electrical to wave their wands to put the replacement tracks and Automatic Train Control (ATC) system and install the new Eglinton Station for the Crosstown instead of muggles?
