    Should it be “her riding of Trinity-Spadina in the next federal election”?

  • TorontoistCopyEditors

    It should indeed have read “after a federal by-election.” Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

    Not rename Union Station. Rename the Douglas B. Ford Park after Sir John A. Macdonald.

    Or some other park next to the restaurant of a similar name. :)

    As you know in Toronto visible minorities makeup over 50%, and growing, of the population, while the City of Toronto workers are 85% white. These are high paying jobs with golden pensions.
    The vast majority of Taxpayer’s billions collected(80%) goes to city workers salaries and their pension obligations. The visible-minority taxpayers who pay City Workers salaries should be accorded a fair portion of city jobs determined by their demographic population.
    This biased policy needs to be fixed, as if it not, there will be much social unrest in the future.

      Not as much social unrest if you:

      a) fire those white folks to hire those vizmins
      b) keep those white folks on AND hire those vizmins

      You are under the incredibly naive understanding that public jobs are “accorded”. They are earned, and kept.

      Competency is not a bias.
