it wouldn't matter what i had as a response anyways.

btw, his total travel expense was $3000, including mileage and downtown parking. hardly something to be worried about. i'm also willing to bet that most of those cabs were from working late hours after the ttc stops running and makingit quickly around teh city from meeting to meeting.

and take a look at some other councillors. glenn de baeremaeker, for instance. $49,000 spent, but $18 K received from corporate donations from huge firms lime rbc and telus. so he actually spent close to $68 k and was only saved by corporate sidling. that's the kind of thing that scares me.

valentines party expenses? retirement party tickets? costume rentals? silver elvis? quality expenses right there.

"hardly something to worry about" I disagree. That attitude is exactly why we are in this mess

I'm sure he had a very important business meeting on new years eve , that he felt was ok to charge me for.

or giorgio mammoliti

$45K k in expenses and over $400 per month on his cell bill

many of the councillors had huge expenses. some of them good, some bad. giambrone is no different than the rest, but if you isoltae his expenses and give no context, sure you can make him look bad. but it doesn't really mean anything.

I have a hard time accepting that someone two years younger than me could be the mayor of Toronto. But, that said, I don't mind him - going back to his appearances on the Michael Coren Show.

We are kind of agreeing 'trane....

I think 80% of the council are pompous money wasting assholes.

What does it say about the job he is currently doing with the TTC is he needs to take all those cabs to get where he is going?

Hhhhm... Maybe that the transit system is awful.

Do we really want to take someone that can't improve the transit system on it's own and put them in charge of the entire city?!!

the ttc is crippled by long-term structural problems that have nothing to do with giambrone. his job was next to impossible. no one could be made to be happy, given the things he had the possibility to control.

i'm not happy with the ttc, but to blame any of that mess on giambrone is to have a very short memory.

I don't think the TTC has looked worse than it does now (in my memory at least).

It's in a very poor state when it comes to public perception.

How embarassing for Giambone, er, brone.

And who writes shit like, "I like you because you're smart and interesting. You're also good-looking naked."?

That's a good point Aar_Canada. I like you because you're smart and interesting....................



























You're also good-looking naked.
