City council heads into day 3. Transit funding day 2.
And you’ve got to hand it to Mayor Ford. He may not have the slightest clue how to push forward an agenda but, man, can the guy fuck up a process. Even when he’s absent most of the time.
His refusal to join in on the transit funding conversation and just say no, no, no has succeeded in throwing a stink bomb into the debate. Many of the councillors don’t know which way is up on this. Sometimes they’re not even sure what it is they’re voting on. The King of Misrule has tapped into to coucil’s inner crazy and set it free. It’s like Mardi Gras but without the music or dancing or booze.
When it is all over, if it’s ever all over… I mean, this thing could go on until the next election campaign officially starts… and some sort of decision is made, if some sort of decision is made, here’s what I think we should do.
Catalogue each and every councillor’s 5 minute speech they made on transit funding revenue tools over the last couple days. Edit the video into 45 neat little separate packages. Set up a You Tube video page. Copy them to flash drives, DVD discs, VHS and Betamax tapes. Send them out to their respective constituents. Implore them to watch sometime between now and next election day.
This is your local councillor. This is their view on transit building. This is their view on city building. This is their view on region building. Does this person represent your views?
If the response is yes. Hey. Have at it. At least you’re willing to fully accept that responsibility. If no, it’s time to start looking around to find yourself some better representation down at City Hall.

you are so right on about this. no more exclusive sound bites of Doug on the airwaves setting the ‘tone’ of the debate for everyone who isn’t paying attention.
full on opportunity to hear it all from each horse’s mouth. then think about it.
Hilarious. Equating City Council with Upper Class Twit of the Year. Could not have said it better.
Good idea except so many have a closed mind, are too willing to pander to those for whom they are infatuated or just plain rude and have only hate in their perspectives.
