Calling out rudeness, a lack of etiquette or a complete absence of compassion or empathy in public should never have to happen -- but it MUST. The recent examples that made the headlines -- of a woman allegedly sitting on the feet of a passenger whose feet dangled over an empty seat on public transit -- is a case in point.

A successful public transit project is one that achieves a sustainable and sufficient ridership that could not be served by less expensive modes. The mere provision of trains operating devoid of riders is not a success but a failure resulting from putting 'progress' ahead of the process.

The Battle For Scarborough's Soul Is Over A Subway

From a transport planning perspective, the one-stop Scarborough subway extension is highly unlikely to make Scarborough residents' lives simpler by offering them fast and efficient mobility. Instead, it could make their transit commutes even longer and more cumbersome.

Cereal Liars: How Your Food Is Fooling You

The food industry is notoriously misleading, undeniably corrupt, and has the one of the largest revenue streams in the world. Coca Cola has lobbyists in Washington, and the meat industry makes no bones about being in bed with the political process. Despite our leaps and bounds in medical science, why can't we effectively tackle the obesity epidemic?

Whoever said you that you can't take brand equity to the bank never dealt with a knife to their reputation. Looking back over 2015, some notable stories stood out for being classic PR blunders, but there do exist a few situations that give us hope that doing right by doing good is still possible.

Jared Fogle Just The Latest To Bring Scandal To Corporate Sponsor

CP | Candice Choi, The Canadian Press | Posted 08.19.2016 | Canada Business

Fogle's case is unusual because of how closely Fogle's regular-guy persona was tied to the sandwich chain — he wasn't a celebrity for any other reason than his Subway diet weight loss. But it again illustrates the risk companies take when tying their names to real people they can't totally control.

Be Kind and Give Your Seat to a Pregnant Woman

Samantha Kemp-Jackson | Posted 06.14.2016 | Canada Parents
Samantha Kemp-Jackson

Sadly, in my experience, purposely ignoring pregnant women while riding public transit has become the norm, not the exception. What has happened to humanity? The lack of focus on others, supported by the technological tools to "zone out" or feign ignorance wherever and whenever possible makes this willful blindness not only possible but probable as well.

You know that feeling when you're hurried to get to work or an appointment downtown but the subway trains are all packed? So you fidget with angst until a less jam-packed car zooms into the station? Now, multiply that stress by 20 times. That's what it feels like to be a disabled man or woman waiting for a subway train in Toronto, at any time of day.

Is John Tory Designing His Policies on an Etch-a-Sketch?

Karen Stintz | Posted 08.02.2014 | Canada Politics
Karen Stintz

For months, John Tory has claimed that his number one priority for transit expansion would be a new subway line to relieve pressure on the overcrowded Yonge line. Then he shook his etch-a-sketch and poof, it's gone. Relieving congestion on the Yonge line moves to the back of the bus. Same thing happened with his positions on the Gardiner and the Eglinton Connects.
