Gotta deal with another year of a joke and then get someone that can actually do good things.

Well I have a theory which is kind of related. For a Conservative leader to get support and succeed in a major election (whether it be for city mayor, PM or Premier) said person needs to be either pretty smart, logical and knows how to use things to his advantage (like Harper) or they need to be not so smart, somewhat idiotic, horrible with the media and somewhat comical (like Ford ).

Ford won cause torontonians were sick of the liberal party. the voters voted for the party, not the candidate, and now it's come to bite them in the ass.

vote for the candidate people! (99 percent of times the best candidate is liberal )

Partly but also because many people were entranced by his "gravy train" rhetoric.

Tell that to people in the West, Quebec and the 905 region

But my previous post was written moreso to show why Hudak will not win. He is too moderate in the sense that he isn't on one side of the extreme or not ie not smart enough or not stupid enough.

If the councilor didn't have such an agenda to make Ford look like a douche, he might have had a strong argument but I couldn't tell, as an outside non-torontonian watching that clip with limited knowledge of transportation issues in Toronto....the councilor came across as a douchebag.

No matter how you say it, when you're discussing an issue and your opponent has absolutely no clue what the matter at hand is, you're going to look like a douche, there's almost nothing you can do to avoid it.

I disagree. You don't need to belittle somebody because they don't know what you're talking about.

there's a difference between belittling someone and trying to get a point across which needs to have the opposition understand what was being discussed. The councillor was trying to get Ford to understand that the proposed LRT line would not cut across many streets and would mainly be off road, so congestion wouldn't be a major issue, but the costs would be tremendously less since no tunnelling would be required.

Ford's answer to this? "psh I don't care, all I know is voters don't care about how little traffic lights the LRT would cross. They want subways"


How is that belittling? He was trying to get through Ford's thick skull that it wouldn't be within traffic for much at all, whilst Ford did not even know the proposed plan and where the LRT would actually run for the most of it.


He's a buffoon. He belittles himself

Ford is the master of willful ignorance. He had a judge willing to kick him out of office specifically due to his propensity for that. He has to know the LRT is not a streetcar, is nothing like the St. Clair streetcar, and is really all that he can afford, but he's whipped up a fuss by conflating and misinforming and now must stand and fight for the little guy (which is also an invention to a certain extent) by being willfully ignorant of obvious facts. There really is no way to divert that into any civil discourse. And now we have nothing happening with transit yet again, mere months after everything was approved and the money made available to pay for it.

Fuck the Liberals for giving him this chance to stymie everything, fuck Karen Stintz for pandering to Ford nation and opening up the can of worms to begin with, and Fuck Ford for being entirely out of touch with reality on all fronts, and for doing everything he can to blur the truth so that a few rich fuckers might get a chance to get richer by developing near a subway stop.

I was very happy to have had a few years paying a little more for the sense of a better city being built for all. Now I get to pay more for the sense that any kind of progress is being sold like a cheap crack whore.

So Scarborough is getting a subway for the same route where the LRT is already, Kennedy station to the Scarborough Town Centre? What a waste of money!

Thank you Libs. And thanks for the sort of silly political grandstanding that perpetuates further bad decisions and delays. Brutal.

Dudes, this has nothing to do with Ford. The lack of awareness of a simple news story is a bit shocking. The Libs are going ahead with this on their own with provincial money, and they are trying to score political points by blaming Ford for the line not going further. Again - it just perpetuates dysfunction, beyond the obvious dysfunction that Ford brings, when that is the last thing that is needed.
