“I have supported and continue to support Ford's fiscally conservative ideals. However listening to a caller on 640 radio repeat a substantive list of idiocy Rob was involved in. That he flat out denied occurred, but were witnessed by dozens of people, some of it even photographed, I've come to the conclusion that he has more that substance abuse issues. Read the profile of Sociopath. Too many points fit. In glaring particularity, lack of remorse and guilt.”

“Rob Ford may sound like a fiscal conservative, but when did cutting taxes count for cutting expenses by the city? If you lower taxes you choke off a revenue stream, this is basic common sense. To turn around and say that saves THE CITY money is disingenuous.

$200-million from cancelling the vehicle-registration tax is savings to the population, NOT the city. That's $200MIL less for Toronto.

$24-million from higher user fees saves the city NOTHING. It places an additional burden on the population.

$78-million from contracting out garbage collection west of Yonge Street. $10.9MIL in savings in 2012, $11.1MIL in 2013, all the way out to the end of the contract in 2019. Technically speaking he's only saved Toronto $20MIL so far.

$606-million from various “efficiencies” ($57-million in the 2011 budget, $327-million in 2012 and $222-million in 2013). These are cuts to services. Saving money at the expense of the services supplied to Torontonians.

Add in the 1.6% hike in property tax to pay for a subway instead of an LRT that was already FULLY FUNDED by the province and would have cost Toronto NOTHING and you gotta wonder...was there really a gravy train in the first place?”

“too bad even Rob Ford's "fiscally conservative ideals" are circumspect. Billion dollar tax hike for a tiny, unneeded subway, anyone? Anyone ....?”

“I don't care. Canada should stay as far away from all of these agreements as the can. They are not designed to help the planet. They are designed to drag strong 1st world economies down while ignoring the wide spread lack of environmental standards in the rest of the world. CHINA & INDIA to name the big two.”

conductor274 on Nov 7, 2013 at 16:25:43

“So your answer is for nobody to TRY to help prevent more climate change. Nobody should even acknowledge the science and the reoccurring proof that climate change is happening. You think we just ignore the enormous amounts of suffering, deaths and hardships around the world due to climate change. Instead you say we should just use the grade school argument "well if he's not gonna do it then I'm not gonna do it either." True leaders with some vision TRY to lead by example, by negotiating, by being reasonable in the face of environmental destruction. By his actions Harper is showing us he is NOT a true leader. He's just a puppet for huge corporations and we're all going to pay the price it.”

“WRONG! Ford shoves TRESPASSERS off his property. Regardless of whatever Ford is alleged to have done. His home is his castle as the saying and common law goes. He asked them to leave, some did but some then returned. He's within his rights as a private citizen to force them off his lawn.”

“When cyclists in the city adhere to the traffic laws more than they flaunt them, I'll be more sympathetic. However, I'm still seeing adults riding on sidewalks, ignoring traffic signals and generally riding where, when and how they want, the rest of us be damned.

And thanks to those 'green' halfwits in the provincial govt. now we have adults riding these stupid electric bikes in a similar manner. I don't care what the province says, they're vehicles like gas bikes. They need to be licensed, and insured. AND KEPT OFF THE DAMN SIDEWALK!!”

“Given that Bashir general expresses sentiments similar to Grayson's about the Tea Party it's disingenuous to suggest this was anything other than Bashir playing devil's advocate to illicit controversial statements from Grayson.

“Harper does not think about Canadians first he is a NeoCon and making fast busks for his friends come before Canada. Your thought is one I agree with why do we insist on shipping out the worst oil on the planet when we could refine it here and create thousands and thousands of jobs. Plus we would be shipping a cleaner product but all who have approached this idea have been cast aside by Harper (USA best asset)...”

“If they were interested in limiting the environmental impact, or economic efficiency, or Canadian jobs, they could retrofit one of the high production refineries in Ontario and further east from sweet crude (Saudi) to tarsands product. But they're not.”

“It's already going to the Chinese, bub...along with all the jobs. Much of it is going to European countries who have banned fracking in their own countries, on their own environmental grounds, but still want oil. There are things going on in Canada that most Canadians don't even know, let alone Americans.”

“That's because sites like HuffPo have been preaching for a couple of years now that Condo's have a shelf live that will require major reno & repair schemes down the road that will be far costlier than single family homes. We're seeing it now with Hi rise office bldgs. Glass panes popping out, surface panesl torn loose by wind shear etc. Condos are built with similar materials and similar construction techniques.

I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking a Condo purchase is a terrible investment. Hence the price diffrerence.”
