Rob Ford Stays Seated As WorldPride Organizers Get Standing Ovation

Rob Ford Stays Seated As WorldPride Organizers Get Standing Ovation

“So much for caring about the taxpayer. If Mr. Ford really cared about us, he'd be applauding the amount of money World Pride brought into Toronto's economy, if nothing else.”

“I work a 5 minute walk away from the Eaton Centre - and almost never go there. Malls are not geared for people my age (at the bottom end of "boomer-ism"). Too much walking (I have arthritic knees), noisy, no place to sit except for fast-food food courts - and only one in ten stores interest me, or cater to my age group. I shop online, patronize farmers' and small local markets for fresh food,and go to big box stores if necessary - where I can easily pinpoint the thing(s) I came for and be in and out again,quickly.”

“Rightly or wrongly, many large businesses (including the provincial government) are still Blackberry-reliant in Ontario and hence, it's largest city. I would suggest that that is: a) in part because it's perceived as demonstrating loyalty to a home-grown product and perhaps more importantly, b) because the cost of switching to an alternative platform would be astronomical - especially Apple's, whose product is expensive and requires constant, near-compulsary upgrading.”

“Stop concentrating on selling teapots and faux-fur throws, and make a better selection of books available. Especially back-catalogue items - if I want to read a series, I want to start with Book 1, and Indigo/Chapters usually doesn't have it, unless it was recently released. Amazon, or a used book store/site, usually does.”

Ward Anderson on May 28, 2014 at 17:21:24

“There are thousands of books in those bookstores. What books aren't you finding? Do you think that bookstores are struggling because they aren't carrying old back titles?

No, people overwhelmingly buy the same books. The bestsellers that get all the rave reviews and attention.

Chapters/Indigo has thousands of books in every store. Not all of them are "new releases". In fact, most are not. The ones in the front, sure. But there are TONS of books.

If you're trying to be specific and find some rare book, you might be out of luck. But that's not why those stores struggle. There are thousands of books you COULD read but choose not to, for whatever reason.

(And they sell the candy and teapots because people buy them. You may detest them, but they sell.)”

“When I look at the faces around the partners' table, I go with the theory that Don has agreed to return because he is more street smart than any of them, and knows he can take them down - Peggy is the only person at the firm as smart as he is. Her "I can't say that we've missed you" is bang on - they've missed the magic Don is erratically capable of producing, but not the man himself. All the strictures they've put on his return - which they thought, wrongly, he'd reject - reflect their own weaknesses - drinking, caring too much about money, odd behavior in front of clients, and misplaced loyalty to employees who are just "adequate" (Roger now included in that group). I see a takeover by Don and Peggy in the future...”

How soon we forget...”

Andrew Castle on Apr 19, 2014 at 12:44:07

“Oh brother stop it. She made an excellent point. The directors or whomever running the casting couches are sleezbags but they aren't forcing these young actors to do anything.

“This should surprise no one. I recently saw a young woman on a quiz show struggling to describe "Mother Teresa". There was a time when pretty much any educated person would know who "Achilles" was, and how to pronounce it. Because so many people now get their "news", if any, through the Internet and/or by absorbing satiric/faux commentary, we are losing that base commonality of general knowledge our society used to have - you can select what you want to know, and that selection can be VERY narrow. I'm guessing this young man is not majoring in History...”

“The person who sits on the outside seat and doesn't move over sometimes finds it physically difficult to be confined in the inside seat (with arthritic knees pressed against a metal seat in front or beside me, my forty minute transit trip can be agony). I do relinquish my seat for pregnant, disabled and elderly people, though: and am continually astonished by how few people do this. And - call me old-fashioned - I'm teaching my 14 year old son that a man sitting in the presence of a lady who's standing is never appropriate.”

Ian Kin on Feb 23, 2014 at 11:32:52

“That is extraordinarily old fashioned and frankly doesn't do anything other than regress gender equality. Chivalry is dead for a reason, its sexist. Treating women like a fair creature that needs to be tended to and aided may seem pleasant on paper but to a lot of women in modern day its very offensive.”
