Oh, and a note to all of Toronto City Council

Grow a pair. Really. Every last one of you. You're sitting there like a bunch of wimps terrified to speak out as your city is being gutted and led by a tandem of mayors. By the way, WTF? Two mayors? Who voted for that? And why is this okay with anyone? Has Toronto gone mad?

Here's the deal, Councillors: Do any of you actually believe you will ever be voted in again after this debacle? How can you think that shutting up and trying to curry favour with men who have such disdain not only for those they pretend to represent, but for the very process, will serve you?

My favourites, however, have to be those who think they're in the inner circle. Ever seen a family business at work before? Ask anyone who has. You will be used up and spit out in a heartbeat. Trust me. You are extraneous to the big picture. Ford Squared is the heart of a family business. Let's say they're the 'offal'. So, as the offal, they will protect the rest of the beast. Period. And you sycophants hanging on? Let's call you psychopants, instead.

Fight back, elected officials. Better to go down in flames, then to just go down, no?

Loved that last sentence! I suspect one or two councillors may have already 'gone down' (shudder); the name Mammoliti comes to mind...

Now that I have ruined a perfectly lovely Saturday with that image, I'm going to make a sandwich, vacuum the pool, brush the dog and then go for a bike ride!

You could try living here in Port Hope. They are building a business park on on 19 acres that they paid approximately $100,000 per acre for, whereas the same available land in Bowmanville goes for $40,000. Also, who in their right mind do they think is going to be building a business in Port Hope, we are on the 401 and we have seniors that drive 20kmh below the 50kmh speed limit, thats it.
Oh, but we also have contaminated soil, a legacy of the good old Cameco days. Not sure how bad it is but my urine isnt glowing in the dark yet so I think Im safe.
My $4000+ a year taxes pay for this, and apparently we also paid for the personalised plates on the towns police department cruisers, one being "911COP".
I give up.

Toronto has become an embarrassing place to live. Every time one of our mayors comes up with a good idea, I shudder. Even their fan base seems to be dwindling. It's going to be a long three years. One can only hope something happens and their reign of terror is cut short.

Me thinks Rob Ford watched The Lost Boys a bit too often! Hint, Keifer Sutherland went on a DIET after that movie, Rob. Its bad enough watching Toronto slide into the primordial ooze but we have the city of Brampton trying to siddle up to Halton and con us into carving up farmland between them and us and wipe out the buffer zone. Plus we have the wonderful Dalton McGuinty "places to pillage" plan which involves overruning Halton with more highways to RobFordville. I want out of here!

Thanks for the ageist comment, Lucywestie. Was that you that just shot past my house on Gifford doing 65kph past the kids baseball diamond?

Port Hope? Once referred to as an "open air asylum" by a magazine (Harrowsmith?) and not much has changed since. Fierce debates about pillars, sidewalks and what to do with the centre pier. The only thing that really unites the town it the envy/hatred of it's neighbour: Cobourg. BTW: If I remember correctly the original vanity plates for the towns police cruisers were donations from either citiens or service clubs.

I recall that I suggested that the two Port Hope police vanity plates might read "Donuts" and "Coffee". For some reason, my suggestion was not taken up.
