“There was a time when employers not only paid but trained new workers, let's not follow this US trend”

“Why should they train them - just bring in a TFW!
That's where the Job Action Plan is going to fail. They expect employers to kick in 1/3 of the costs for training. When they find out there are no takers, they will say the program has failed and obviously people just aren't interested in learning new skills.”

“The irony being is that if you did a study on the least sexually aggressive males on the planet, Toronto would probably be near the top of the list; and I have actually had more than a few women comment about how sexually frustrating they found their time in Toronto to be.”

“According to a crowd-funded startup, the ratio of women to men are such that, there are ~50k more women(within some unspecified dating range) in Toronto, than there are men.

“Not really. Right now cops don't tend to charge people for possession. The time and the paperwork aren't worth it and if they go to court the judge often just throws it out as a waste of time. However, a ticket is easy to write and more will be written. It's a revenue stream I guess, but compared to the revenue from legal pot, it's a drop in the bucket.
It also gives the cop on the street the discretion to ticket or charge. Any guesses on how many white suburban kids will be charged vs. downtown visible minority kids? I'm not saying all cops, but I am saying we have seen that pattern before and it isn't pretty.”
