“At least this was a nice, responsible resignation. He fed his former colleagues. I recently quit a job by just gathering my belongings and walking out. Sometimes it's not how you leave, but that you do leave, because like Mr. Cake said, "I now realize how precious life is and how important it is to spend time doing something that makes me, and other people, happy."
“I'm sorry, but when you don't have regard for human life or that someone can be innocent until proven guilty, then how can you advance as a society? The kids that witnessed this think it's okay, the people who spit on and kicked the deceased (or dying if they were still alive) or to see someone alive being dragged through the streets is unimaginable. My head is shaking. Someone in that community needs to stand up and enact change... Real change.”

“Harris? Surely you can go back further than that... It's not just a Ford issue but aside from making fun of his weight as many of those who posted below (all in perfect health too, I presume) it's a Toronto issue and you can go through Ford to Miller, Lastman, Eggleton and more to see that none of these councils thought about moving people in this "world class city" before it was developed to the hilt.
Sure, Ford promised a partnership with private business to pay for subways and I'm not sure where it all went off track - either because the subway plan was derailed by Cllr Stintz in favour of LRT's or because there was no private interest.
All in all, I am a car driver where there is no subways, but love taking the TTC and if there was any way to get more subways without closing all the main streets for 2-3 years at a time, I would support a subway-only tax... For the City of Toronto and it's future.
