Toronto the Not in a Death Spiral

June 24th, 2009

Two years ago, almost to the day, I made an off-handed remark about Toronto being in a death spiral. This somewhat offended James at The Progressive Right, who both commented on it, and had his own post.  I let it drop after that, bringing up only once about six months later. In retrospect, I should have made it a series, the way Kate does Not Waiting for the Asteroid or Y2Kyoto. However, never too late as they say:

Toronto the Not in a Death Spiral


The mayor of Toronto this week is refusing to force striking City of Toronto workers to allow members of the public to access the garbage transfer stations, as they are legally obligated to do. Citizens, however, who do not stand in long lines to be graced with the privilege of being allowed their legal right, and leave their garbage say, outside the transfer stations will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.


Addendum: memo to the Toronto Sun: this is not a waffle, this is picking sides and he sided with the law breakers.


Additional: anyone out there know how to add a little swirly effect to the above picture?

    Is there really a negotiation going on between the city and CUPE – or is it all smoke and mirrors? All the people in power are union apologists, whether it is the Mayor or the Head of Toronto Transit. Run taxpayers, run – your pocket is about to be picked.
