In a country that prides itself in its gender-equal cabinet, the question of whether or not Parliament Hill is a safe space for women is rarely discussed. From hateful and misogynistic comments to sexual assault, women in Canadian politics continue to be targets of violence at various stages of their careers.
Toronto city councillor Karen Stintz has dropped out of the race to lead Canada's largest city. The right-leaning councillor had been polling in the single digits and was stuck at fourth or fifth plac...
It appears Toronto mayoral candidate and Coun. Karen Stintz has indeed moved past the lewd comments Rob Ford made about her just a few months ago. On Wednesday, Ford showed up unexpectedly at the ribb...

Anyone who has been down to the Harbourfront recently knows that Queens Quay is under construction. The streetcar tracks are being replaced and Waterfront Toronto is building a new tree-lined promenade that will be spectacular once complete, but creates traffic chaos in the meantime. Although I expected the construction on Queens Quay, nothing prepared me for the trifecta of traffic interruptions that followed. Traffic was already heavy because it was the season home opener for the Argos. That would have been fine, if the rest of the transportation network had been working.

While the leading candidates for Toronto's mayoral elections -- Olivia Chow, David Soknacki, Karen Stintz, and John Tory -- were unanimous in realizing that mobility was the number one issue for the City. The transit plans they revealed had one thing in common: they only have partial solutions and pet projects for Toronto's mobility troubles.
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.

It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyways. Being a working mother is a never ending balancing act. My children have always had a politician for a mom; I was elected to Toronto's city council before they were born. My chosen career -- and my choice to run for Mayor -- means that my life is, to a certain degree, public.
Toronto mayoral candidate Karen Stintz says she is disappointed by Rob Ford's lewd comments but is not calling for the Toronto mayor to resign. "Rob Ford's comments are gross," she said at a press con...
Dear Chicago, You've had your share of bad politicians. Between 1976 and 2010, there were 1,531 convictions for public corruption in the "federal district dominated by Chicago." This guy was reported...

If the campaigns, including the media attempting to manipulate it, continue as they have started 2014, we will wake up on October 28 and ask ourselves again how Rob Ford won.
