The star back Tory!
Not gonna do the spoiler thing, but this quote from Leopold Infeld, who worked with Einstein and taught at U of T stood oot (and aboot):So who is Toronto-the-person that Levine distills from 220 years of multicultural occupation since the 17th-century visit of French bad boy Ã‰tienne BrÃ»lÃ© and the Seneca village of Teiaiagon on the Carrying Place trail and the arrival in 1793 of John Graves Simcoe? Hint: You are not going to like himâ€”

No wonder they want subways. CH took away all the effing buses! Barbarians need to get around too.
It's starting to get irritating that people pay out on Olivia for focusing so much on buses and not having a greater vision for transit. Subways, anyone?
The fact is you can fire up another bus in a minute, but you can't fire up another subway tunnel anytime soon.
These are problems that need fixing *now*, not in a decade, and incidentally recently made much worse by Ford himself (supported by Doug if he happened to be around).
Olivia's bus focus may be boring, but this shows she's working towards fixing the Ford problem, and not in a pissing contest to see who has more vision. Smart truckload, anyone?
Ask Doug to give you vision. A couple of bowls oughta do. Man, am I feeling crabby.
Me too, L-D!I remember seeing one of those pulling up on a cold and snowy or rainy night, and thinking it a fine sight indeed.
They've debated everything over and over. I'm disappointed that emergency preparedness was not discussed.betsy powell @powellbetsy
A terrorist question. Maybe a first for this campaign?
I know Ã‰tienne BrÃ»lÃ© was killed and eaten by the local native people, because he was so despicable to them. I love reading about the history of Toronto, even about the Toronto-Not-So-Good.Not gonna do the spoiler thing, but this quote from Leopold Infeld, who worked with Einstein and taught at U of T stood oot (and aboot):
“it must be good to die in Toronto. The transition between life and death would be continuous, painless and scarcely noticeable.”
That's better than "New York Run By The Swiss', IMO, so shall take it up in my continued cosmopolitan dismissals of my home town as a loogan backwater lurking just a few centimetres below a shiny global financial centre (Hey, I still consider Van-Groovy a two-fisted. inked-up, balding stevadore 'burg whose residents are permanently stunned by the beauty that surrounds them).
Read the review. It really paints this book's version of the city's history as greedy, racist, exclusionary, self-serving, self-dealing, enforcedly patrician and nakedly ugly. Of those last two. one suspects we shall be temporarily rid of the latter soon and shortly thereafter re-acquainted with the familiar charms of second-latter.
Valpy (the reviewer) tries to end on a positive note with a Jane Jacobs quote. But that in itself is barbed. Valpy doesn't like this book it seems. And I want to read it.
