What’s wrong with this city council?
Why are our city councillors who used to be against LRTs, all of a sudden changing their tune? How could any reasonably intelligent person support an ancient mode of transport that has proven to be a complete disaster on St. Clair Avenue that killed hundreds of businesses and cost so many precious jobs in a city that already lost 300,000 jobs in manufacturing in seven years? Especially a person who has access to all the TTC’s own data that says LRTs stink and are dangerous for emergency vehicles?
And not only to endorse the same, but trying to misrepresent it to Torontonians as ‘rapid’ transport?
Just because LRTs are cheaper, it that a good reason to build something stupid that will paralyze the City? And something that will have to be ripped out in ten to fifteen years at humongous cost because it ruined the neighbourhood or stopped working? Politicians don’t get it. If they don’t know how to do what they should be doing, rather than doing nothing, they will do something completely outrageous and waste our money! Or they do something that will punish businesses who failed to support their hair-brained ideas.
Could it be that the brains of some of these councillors get constipated and stop functioning when they have to plan something that costs more than a billion dollars? After all they have wasted much time in the last seven years on 5 cent bags, bottles, bike trails that are never used, and backyard chickens! What really have our lefty councillors achieved in seven years apart from tearing down things that were already built? And now they spend all their time to stop the few great minds on the new council from bringing us into the 21st century!
Someone has made these 25 councillors and offer they couldn’t refuse
There can be only one answer. Someone has made these 25 councillors an offer they couldn’t refuse! David Miller used to buy his votes by giving away $50 million dollars in grants every year, the amount given to each ward would vary according to how loyal the councillor in that ward was to his Worship. It is a matter of record that Adam Vaughan’s ward received the most, $4 million dollars dished out to about 180 good causes in ward 15 during the last year Miller was in power, while the wards of the Mayor’s opponents would receive just a bit over one hundred thousand dollars.
They couldn’t do this without Dalton McGuinty’s help
Dalton McGuinty of course set an example for Miller when he rewarded the former Ontario president of the Liberal Party with a 20-year-contract at $66,000.00 per day (Total $480 million). What would you do for that kind of bread?
With the help of the Ontario Liberals, the middle class in Toronto, the people we desperately need to create jobs, has been effectively killed in Toronto with Miller’s war on cars and on business and with Dalton McGuilty’s help. They copied Barack Obama who killed the middle class in America and if we don’t stop them, we’ll soon be in the same trouble as Greece; politicians and unions entitled to every perk you can think of, but suddenly no one around able to pay for them!
We must start fighting to take our country back
We must convince the few decent Liberal MPPs to jump ship to the Conservatives and we must wake up the Conservatives to start making some noise instead of being polite politicians afraid to rock the boat! We must teach our politicians to start helping business instead of overtaxing them, and killing them with never ending regulations and then taking their customers away from them by barring access to their premises with phony streetcars called rapid LRTs. We can’t allow McGuinty to restore his ruined reputation for wasting taxpayer’s money with E-health and ORNGE on the back of streetcars.
Karen Stintz changed her mind about subways five times
When David Miller was Mayor, she was against LRTs until she needed a favour in her ward. Then, all of a sudden she was seen running around the city at the arm of Mayor Miller promoting Transit City on subway platforms. Then, after Rob Ford got elected she endorsed his subway plan and was rewarded with the chairmanship of the TTC. And now all of a sudden she is the LRT Queen acting like subways were the bubonic plague! And last week after reaching a compromise with Rob Ford, she changed her mind again and got rid of all Ford allies on the TTC!
Karen Stintz cannot be trusted
How can we trust public officials like that? She’s been edged on by Joe Mihevc, Adam Vaughan, Janet Davis, and their union buddies sending downtown people into Scarborough to raise cane against subways and to tell us what we need.
Council plays Dirty Tricks
To foist their warped ideas on us, they loaded the panel put together to decide the fate of Sheppard Avenue 5 to 1 with streetcar politicians from the last century despite knowing that the public wants subways. They even had downtown politicians going door-to-door in Scarborough to try and drum-up support for streetcars!
The organizers of a meeting to promote LRTs on March 4 under the slogan ‘Respect Scarborough’, were a front for the Elementary Teachers of Toronto. If Karen Stintz is rubbing shoulders with the unions, you can guess who will be dictating her agenda.
City Councillors should know better than to fall for that.
