Newsstand: April 9, 2014

Wednesday—the day that we all feel like packing it in and calling it a week. Keep pushing forward. We can make it. In the news: changes are in store for Toronto liquor licences, a vague draft policy on carding needs more work, Rob Ford has some new muscle on his re-election campaign team, and the Leafs are not playoff-bound.

It seems like the streets of Toronto are becoming the Wild West of liquor sales, since The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has forced the hand of change in the city by informing municipal officials that it will no longer enforce the conditions that are currently attached to liquor licences in Toronto. It will be now up to municipal inspectors to police all issues not covered under the provincial Liquor Licence Act, including service to minors, overcrowding, and after-hours service. It was a surprise policy change that City officials were made aware of on March 14, and it lead city council to pass a motion on April 1 that makes future liquor licence applications more arduous. Now all applications will go through the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Safe Bars program, and applicants must get a letter of support from the local MPP. Where these conditions are not met, the application will go to a hearing for further deliberation. The more stringent licence application process is now a must, says Councillor Gord Perks (Ward 14, Parkdale—High Park), due to the fact that the province will no longer enforce the conditions that the City placed on all previously issued licences in an attempt to keep venues in compliance. Local critics of the provincial changes say that they will lead to problems, since Toronto inspectors can only enforce City bylaws, which carry fairly light penalties.

While the first draft policy on the controversial practice of carding represents a step in the right direction, the Ontario Human Rights Commission says it does not resolve human rights concerns. In a public meeting on Tuesday night, Barbara Hall of the Commission told members of the Toronto Police Services Board that until the policy document is declared legal by either the courts or a human rights tribunal, all carding should be stopped. The draft policy will not stop carding as the Toronto Police chief writes new procedures; instead, it allows for carding for the “purpose of ensuring public safety.” This, says detractors, is too vague of a statement. Lawyer Frank Addario—who helped create the draft policy—says, “We have agreed to make the policy pivot on a definition of public safety purpose. The practical effect of the policy is only as good as the definition of public safety purpose.” The board is currently working toward providing a draft definition that will clarify what constitutes public safety, and board chair Alok Mukherjee says the policy may change before it goes to vote on April 24.

In news that is too strange not to mention, yesterday Mayor Rob Ford introduced two new faces to his re-election campaign. Who, you ask, has joined his illustrious team? Disgraced Olympic sprinter Ben Johnson, and Trailer Park Boys actor Sam Tarasco. At this point, every day is a brand new gift to Jimmy Kimmel.

Finally, we are all trapped in a glass case of emotion this morning, since the Toronto Maple Leafs have—once again—been ousted from playoff contention after losing 3-0 to the Tampa Bay Lightning last night. Single tear.

    Back in Seoul I thought Ben Johnson was mostly a witless stooge who was duped by nefarious characters such as Dr. George Astaphan and others. I see he has learned nothing at all from that.

    • Jer

      everybody gots to get paid

      • Notcleverguy

        Sad but true.

      • HotDang

        The line you’re looking for, in light of the Trailer Park Boys connection, is “man’s gotta eat.”

        • Squintz

          That’s the way she goes boys.

      • VictorianShuter

        Five words: “I Cheetah all the time!”

        • dsmithhfx

          To which Rob retorts, “I Coke all the time!”

  • dsmithhfx

    I hope Rob gets a supporting role on TPB after he loses in October.

    • Notcleverguy

      Please don’t let it be shirtless Randy’s father.

      • vampchick21

        Somehow, that’s the best role for him. Even though it will burn mine precious eyes if shirtless Randy’s father is also shirtless.

        Or pantless.

        • Notcleverguy

          Well, there go my lunch plans! Thanks, :)

          • vampchick21

            Ok, ok….fully clothed, but sets up as competition to Ricky and challenges Mr. Lahey to a drinkin contest, winner gets to manage the trailer park, resulting in the boys having to put a stop to all the madness!

          • HotDang

            I’ve saved this trailer park a billion dollars. I’m the best trailer park supervisor of all time. Have a creme egg.

            I think we’ve found Rob’s calling.

          • vampchick21

            He could claim one of Bubbles’ cats is peering over the fence at him, taking pictures. And another came scampering onto his trailer property in such a threatening manner than he HAD to call 911 and don’t those damn operators know that he’s in charge at the park?

      • dsmithhfx

        He can play himself, on the lam from the Toronto police, perpetually campaigning to ‘stop the gravy trailer’ and handing out fistfulls of “Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto” fridge magnets to baffled residents.

        • bobloblawbloblawblah

          Y’know, he’s going to be looking for work come October 28th, and Rob Ford being a shameless buffoon would probably seriously entertain this idea. It would give him something to do until he runs for councillor in 2018 and returns to torture TO again.

          • Notcleverguy

            Let’s see if Doug, who has been screaming all along that people would want Rob to be watching their money let’s him watch Deco’s money. My bet is he will not.

          • rich1299

            He doesn’t need to work, after all he’s a mega millionaire thanks to his father.

        • VictorianShuter

          Speaking of which, I expect Tarasco will be playing himself in the upcoming Crazy Town adaptation, even if it’s just a brief cameo.

    • TheSotSays

      That’s one avenue not open to Olivia Chow when she loses. She was thrown off the TPB the last time she was here.

      • dsmithhfx

        Whereas Rob is a ‘person of interest’ to the TPS?

        • vampchick21

          I’m just wondering when I missed the Trailer Park Boys episode starring Olivia Chow……the one she was apparently thrown off from?

        • TheSotSays

          Unfortunately when the OPP looked at the work of the NDP appointed Toronto Police Chief they walked away.
          Heigh Ho Clayton Ruby!

          • dsmithhfx

            Unfortunately for Rob, the investigation continues.

          • TheSotSays

            So what you’re saying is that although the OPP walked away from this, the NDP appointed Toronto Police Chief is still at it wasting taxpayer money.

          • dsmithhfx

            It would be pretty irresponsible of the police if they weren’t investigating a mayor with ties to gun- and drug-running gangs. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/probe-involving-mayor-rob-ford-s-friend-led-by-top-detective-1.1894992

            And note the line, “Ford has denied both using cocaine and the video’s existence.” !

          • Notcleverguy

            This sot thing obviously doesn’t care about the safety of Toronto families as long as it doesn’t have to pay $60 a year in car tax, it will be happy with a criminal in charge of the city.

            No one need know more about sot than that.

          • TheSotSays

            So you’re saying the second sight OPP is irresponsible. Congratulations!

          • dsmithhfx

            Thank you!

      • tyrannosaurus_rek

        Just send her a text confessing your love already, this is getting sad/boring.

        • TheSotSays

          Yeah she is sad and boring and at $530,000 of annual expenses she’s also expensive.

          • dsmithhfx

            Expensive? That’s chump change to Rob’s billion$$$ property tax grab.

          • TheSotSays

            Rob Ford has one vote out of 45 down there. And the recent coup d’etat budget team voted taxes higher than he wants.

          • dsmithhfx

            Subways, Subways, Subways!

          • TheSotSays

            One vote out of 45 is all the man has on council and in the last election he campaigned on subways and was the lead mayoralty candidate in 33 out of 44 wards.

          • Notcleverguy

            If you cant hack or afford to live in the big city, you should move.

        • dsmithhfx

          There’s probably a restraining order…

          • TheSotSays

            What’s fascinating about the NDP is that it’s top to bottom childish.

          • dsmithhfx

            Isn’t there a town drunk you should be chasing after?

          • TheSotSays

            Back in 1995 Bob Rae set up a series of circumstances that caused a wipe out and extinguishment of the Ontario NDP that has lasted from that time to this.

            Dave Miller as NDP Mayor and Olivia Chow as NDP poor choice candidate have set the Toronto Branch NDP up for a spectacular repeat performance. Bye bye!

          • dsmithhfx

            Back in 2002 Mike Harris set up a series of circumstances that caused a wipe out and extinguishment of the Ontario Conservatives that has lasted from that time to this.

            Rob Ford as Crackhead Nutter Drunktank Mayor and rock-bottom losers’ choice has set the Ford Fambly up for a spectacular repeat performance, which the current Conservatives want no part of. Bye bye!

          • TheSotSays

            What’s fascinating about the NDP is that it’s bottom to top childish .

          • tyrannosaurus_rek

            The ONDP have 21 seats, up from 10 in 2007, so they’re hardly “extinguished” or even evidence of a persisting decline.

          • dsmithhfx

            Shhh… you’ll ruin the red scare. BOO!

          • TheSotSays

            Well isn’t that commendable from 74 seats in 1990 to 10 seats in 2007 and 21 seats today. So at that progression we can expect a New NDP government in the year 2075.

            Andrea Horwath is a likeable person with an appearance of honesty, who has made some improvement. You should have tried running her for Mayor.

          • dsmithhfx

            The 1990 election was a freak, one-off result that no one anticipated — least of all the NDP, who were ill-prepared to govern. Bob Rae long since decamped to the Federal Liberals, you may (not) have noticed.

            In modern times, Katherine Wynne has outflanked the provincial NDP on the left, and Andrea Horwath has outflanked the Hudak Conservatives on the right.

            Go figure — unless it gives you an aneurism.

            Your grasp of politics is tenuous, shall we say. If you only remain under your bed blubbering about “the NDP”, this will all be over soon.

          • bobloblawbloblawblah

            This guy reminds me of Mammolitti…..looking for the Red Boogeyman hiding in the closet.

          • TheSotSays

            You’re right about the NDP being an unprepared freak in 1990. My grandmother’s cleaning lady ended up as an NDP cabinet Minister.

          • dsmithhfx

            “My grandmother’s cleaning lady ended up as an NDP cabinet Minister.”

            Really. What’s her name?

          • TheSotSays

            None of your business. She was a very good cleaning lady. We’ll likely need her again sometime.

          • dsmithhfx

            None of my business? You claim she was an elected, public official. I think you’re lying. And you’re trying to score a cheap point.

            Why shouldn’t a “cleaning lady” be a cabinet minister? A lot of people in the service industry are highly qualified immigrants, and more recent university graduates from here, who can’t find decent jobs. And many others are smart and informed people, who did not have the opportunity to obtain higher education. What’s your excuse?

            See, that’s something “the NDP” is for: good jobs and education for all.

            Take your stupid, bigoted notions elsewhere. Many thanks!

          • tyrannosaurus_rek

            20% of the seats is commendable, just ask the Ontario Green Party or the 17 other registered parties that haven’t secured a single seat.

          • TheSotSays

            Well in 1987 the NDP had 19 seats, so in 30 years you’ve gone nowhere. And until you stop foisting people like Dave Miller and Olivia Chow on us, that will continue.

          • dsmithhfx

            There, there, “the NDP” can’t hurt you.But Rob Ford can — and he already has, as you have amply demonstrated with your impaired thinking and uncontrollable infatuation. And all over nothing, a big, silly man-child on drugs.

          • TheSotSays

            I’ll take 30 Rob Fords over one Jack Layton any day of the week.

          • tomwest

            It would 30 Rob Fords to work as many hours per day as Jack Layton did.

          • TheSotSays

            Jack was a freeloader who let his first wife work her butt off and put him through school an then he left her. It’s typical NDP behaviour.

          • dsmithhfx

            When Rob Ford dies, be assured there won’t be a state funeral. What’s that tell you about their relative stature and value to the nation?

          • tyrannosaurus_rek

            That’s still 19 more seats than 85% of Ontario’s political parties have managed in the same time frame.

          • TheSotSays

            Well congratulations for beating out the 1,472 communists who voted in Toronto at the last federal election. But no additional seats in 30 years spells LOSER to me. And until you stop foisting people like Dave Miller and Olivia Chow on us, that will continue.

          • dsmithhfx

            You’re the one who seems to think “the NDP” represents an existential threat to your beer and lottery ticket allowance.

            And why are you accusing ‘rek of “foisting people like Dave Miller and Olivia Chow on us”?

            Who’s “us”, seeing’s how your views are distinctly in the minority here?

          • tyrannosaurus_rek

            He’s under the impression I’m Neethan Shan, president of the O-NDP.

          • OgtheDim

            I’m having trouble tracking his personas. Is this the guy who thinks I’m a city councillor?

          • tyrannosaurus_rek

            Your general state of confusion is becoming a barrier to communication. We’re talking about provincial politics here, not federal or municipal.

            As a conservative I understand you’re keen on the idea of one party ruling forever, but that’s not how it works in Canada. The Ontario PCs can attest to that, as they’re slumped back to where they were in 1985.

          • TheSotSays

            Slumped because of Hudak. If they’d been smart enough to deal with Frank Klees in an intelligent way they’d have cleaned McGinty’s clock. Klees is a very bright and saleable guy and every time time he stood up in question period and grilled Mathews about the health care, she gained 10 pounds

            Now in Toronto Rob Ford was at a bit of a disadvantage until the Toronto Branch NDP adopted Ontario PC stupidity and decided to run Olivia Chow. Bye bye NDP.

          • dsmithhfx

            Political parties are banned in municipal politics here.

            Next.

          • TheSotSays

            Party politics in municipal government is heinous and diabolical. Chicago style sewer politics along party lines was delivered to us by the Toronto Branch NDP and it STINKS.

            For the last 15 or 20 years Toronto is the laughing stock of Canada and is ridiculed across the country on account of it.

          • dsmithhfx

            “Party politics in municipal government is heinous and diabolical.”

            No, it’s flat out banned. End of.

            Seriously, you should take your routine on Jimmy Kimmel.

          • TheSotSays

            Go away, Marxist NDP agitators are foolish and tiresome.

          • dsmithhfx

            Gwan. Do a YouTube of how “the NDP” made Rob Ford smoke crack. Guaranteed hit!

          • TheSotSays

            Rob’s good with me I’m voting for him.

            But since Jack defines the NDP you should do a YouTube “Jack Pushes Woman to make sure we see him on TV”

            Heigh Ho Clayton Ruby.

          • dsmithhfx

            A vote for Ford is effectively a vote for Chow. Clayton Ruby is not a candidate.

            Next.

          • TheSotSays

            Rob’s good with me, I’m voting for him and the only votes Chow is likely to get are from Jack Layton cultists who don’t mind $530,000 of taxpayers money being blown away on fine dining and NDP social gatherings.

            Have you signed up yet with Myer Siemiatycki for his free course on NDP trolling and political agitation?

          • TheSotSays

            Did you watch the YouTube of “gallant” Jack jumping up and down and pushing the young girl out of the way so everyone could see him on TV.

            I’m voting for Rob Ford for Mayor and against any other candidate for public office who is connected to the NDP.

          • dsmithhfx

            Rob Ford for Also-ran? You may as well stay home, because he’s got it sewed up.

          • TheSotSays

            Did you watch the YouTube of “gallant” Jack jumping up and down and pushing the young girl out of the way so everyone could see him on TV.

            Next

          • dsmithhfx

            Irrelevant. He’s not a candidate, for obvious reasons.

            Next.

          • TheSotSays

            Highly relevant actually. He speaks to the moral values held by the NDP. You erect statues to him.

          • dsmithhfx

            Irrelevant. The NDP aren’t running candidates in the Toronto municipal election, because that would be illegal.

            Next.

          • TheSotSays

            An illegal activity by the NDP, that would be novel wouldn’t it?

            Let me remind you that when NDP Jack ran into the newspaper box and hospitalized himself at my expense, he was riding his bike illegally on the side walk.

          • tyrannosaurus_rek

            Compared to smoking crack cocaine, frequent public drunken stupors, driving while intoxicated, associating with drug dealers and gangs in a crack house, and being involved in extortion, riding your bike on the sidewalk really isn’t a problem.

          • TheSotSays

            Unfortunately a lot of the other stuff your NDP clunker was up to was “beyond the pale.”

            Therefore I’m voting for Rob Ford. When Ford makes an election promise he can be trusted absolutely to fight fearlessly for his promised objective. NDP values stink as far as I’m concerned.

          • dsmithhfx

            “Unfortunately a lot of the other stuff your NDP clunker was up to he was “beyond the pale.””

            Such as?

          • TheSotSays

            Co op housing, Dundas Street activities and oh yeah and when he was a teenager he was given a position of trust by the directors of the Hudson yacht Club and he seriously violated that trust. The man is a guiding symbol of the NDP and he was morally bankrupt.

          • Notcleverguy

            You stated that you were voting for Ford, sounds like morally bankrupt is exactly what you like in a candidate.

            You need to stop arguing both side of the same argument to fit whatever whim drifts through you tiny transom.

            I doubt anyone in your life takes you seriously, because I haven;t come across a bigger fool. .

          • TheSotSays

            Have you signed up yet with Myer Siemiatycki for his free course on NDP trolling and political agitation?

            Oh by the way, whoever decided that Olivia Chow should be an NDP mayoralty candidate is a much bigger fool than me.

          • dsmithhfx

            Chow isn’t an “NDP candidate”. There are no “NDP candidates” in the election.

            Next.

          • bobloblawbloblawblah

            Man, you guys like feeding the troll!

          • dsmithhfx

            Shhh… Ever time he posts, Ford loses 10 more votes.

          • TheSotSays

            And every time you post we laugh like a hyenas at the fact the marxist NDP is trying to elect a dud like Chow as Mayor.

          • dsmithhfx

            “we laugh like a hyenas”

            The voices in your head?

          • TheSotSays

            I hope you take that course and come away thinking you can stuff election boxes.

          • bobloblawbloblawblah

            Well, in that case, feed away.

          • TheSotSays

            This free course of instruction at Ryerson on marxist political agitation is backed by the “Friends of Jack Layton.” whatever type of dirty political thing that is.

            But here’s the question … who is paying for the use of classroom space, for the janitors, for the cleaning up and all that sort of thing?

            Are the “Friends of Jack Layton” paying for the expensive cost of the space or is it a typical NDP move of fobbing their overhead over onto the taxpayers generally.

            Olivia Chow is an NDP candidate, as was Miller. It’s filthy dirty, we don’t want it and it needs to be stopped. I’m voting for Ford because he’s the only one who can tackle it.

          • dsmithhfx

            Thank you for supporting the Chow candidacy by throwing away your vote on the loser Ford.

          • TheSotSays

            Get your butt over to Bushy Siemy, he wants to sign you up for a “freebie.”

          • dsmithhfx

            Ryerson has some excellent courses in criminal justice. You should take them if you want to understand what kind of trouble your inamorata is in. If you don’t want to know, well, that’s on you. While you’re at it, some political science, history and remedial writing would not go amiss.

          • TheSotSays

            For sure, I’ll pop over to Ryerson Loser School and listen to Heigh Ho Clayton Ruby give lectures on NDP criminal justice.

          • dsmithhfx

            You might learn something!

          • TheSotSays

            Great, I could become as intelligent as you and Jack.

            By the way your trolling activity seems to have a momentary pause at the end of a normal work day. From that I take it that your constant activity during the day is on some ones time other than your own.

            I wish I could say I’m surprised to find an NDP troll furthering his marxist politics by stealing time from his regular employers.

          • dsmithhfx

            “Co op housing”

            Not illegal.

            “Dundas Street activities”

            Not illegal.

            “Hudson yacht Club”

            Huh?

            Two things:

            1. Jack Layton is dead. Everything you say about him is utterly irrelevant to this election, and

            2. Rob Ford is a disgraced, lame-duck, former mayor and soon-to-be also-ran. Please vote for him, and help increase Chow’s chances of winning.

          • TheSotSays

            Unfortunately for you Jack and his statue are alive and well and laughable. That plus $530,000 in MP expenses are going to re-elect the mayor we need to clean up the biggest NDP mess in the country.

            The drunken tax-and-spend buffoon who tried to impose a billion$$$ property tax grab on the taxpayers of Toronto?

            Chow promised to cancel that.

          • TheSotSays

            NDP promises are worthless.

            So tell us about Chow’s $530,000 in annual MP expenses. Who does your tax and spend buffoon really think she is?

          • dsmithhfx

            You’ll have to vote for Stintz or Tory if you want to pay up Ford’s billion$$$ tax grab. Only the mini-Fords are that stupid, and either way, Rob won’t be around to deliver.

          • TheSotSays

            Chow’s a buffoon candidate and in order to get her elected you’ll have to stuff ballot boxes as was apparently done in Quebec. If you do that in Toronto you’ll be sending a few NDP members to jail.

            So go take your free course in political agitation and good luck to any childish nonsense you dream up in any attempt to get yourself out of having chosen a ridiculous dud candidate.

          • dsmithhfx

            Hmm, Chow doesn’t seem to need Ben ” I Cheetah all the time!” Johnson, and some Trailer Park Boys stoner extra on her team… who’s the buffoon?

          • TheSotSays

            Well congratulations I’ll be sure to let everyone know that the NDP and the Olivia Chow supporters are making racist comments on the internet.

            But the real buffoon appears to be Chow because you’ve convinced her she needs support from you.

          • dsmithhfx

            Chow needs your support and the rest of the sad fools remaining in Ford Nation to ensure her victory in October. Priceless!

          • TheSotSays

            Well comrade, we’ll all be sure to support your little self interested, tax plundering, double dipping marxist candidate Olivia. And we’ll do that by voting for Rob Ford .

            The nice thing about Rob Ford is that we know exactly where he stands on all issues and that he can be relied on absolutely to cast his one council vote the way we want him to.

            Have you given any thought to what you’ll do for employment when the NDP gets flushed out of City Hall in October?

          • dsmithhfx

            You’ll eat your words when Chow delivers the biggest tax cut in Toronto history, by cancelling Rob’s billion$$$ tax grab. Rob is trying to buy votes in Scarborough with our money, by building a subway we don’t need, instead of the fully-funded LRT that has more stops.

            All your empty blather about “the NDP in City Hall” is just a smokescreen that the crack-luvin’ boffo part-time mayor can’t hide behind as he lurches drunkenly back and forth on city roads, endangering everyone in his path.

            He’ll be gone in October, and you’ll be left fondling the worthless bobblehead you overpaid for on ebay and weeping softly.

          • TheSotSays

            Canadians in general despise the idea of party politics playing a roll in municipal government, it’s suggestive of Chicago style sewer politics and as a nation we hate it. But everyone in the country knows what’s going on down there, what the NDP is up to, so your clumsy effort to deny the dirty thing is preposterous

            Nevertheless If you want further enlightenment about why Olivia Chow is such a spectacular dud candidate for mayor in the eyes of most people, go over to the website of my respected friend Professor Milt Rosenberg and listen to his currently posted interview of author and historian, Simon Montefiore.

          • dsmithhfx

            “Canadians in general despise the idea of party politics playing a role in municipal government”

            And we were outraged when Harper and Hudak showed up at Rob’s barbecue! We have to wonder if they snorted up with him and posed for selfies with hells angels. The idea of our Prime Minister cavorting with a crack-smoking gangbanger is horrifying.

          • TheSotSays

            Harper was there to cough up federal tax money for transit to subsidize your daily trip over to queen street at my expense. Hudak is as big a dud as Chow and was simply looking to see if he could find anyone who likes him.

            Anyway NDP flakes have notoriously closed minds and I’m sick of listening to them. That’s why I’m voting for Rob Ford and against anything with even a sniff of Liberal or NDP about it

            When the Toronto Branch NDP gets flushed out in October maybe Mihevic can find you a job pouring cement for one his buddies.

          • dsmithhfx

            Ah. You’re with the Tea Party. They were a resounding failure in the states and nearly destroyed the Republican Party with their insane, anti-tax radicalism. We don’t want them here either, and it sure doesn’t square with your support for a reckless, tax-and-spend failure who wants to increase our property taxes by a billion$$$. Now I understand why you want to effectively vote for Chow, because she’s the only one who can put a stop to it.

          • TheSotSays

            It must be wearing you NDP flakes out trying to overcome the mistake you made bringing forward a tax plundering, dud mayoralty candidate like Olivia Chow.

            a) Ford’s platform in 2010 was to vote TTC junk off the streets and into subways
            b) Based on that platform Ford won a majority in 33 out of 44 Toronto Wards
            c) If there is one thing clear about Rob Ford it’s an adversity to tax increases

            Since Rob Ford has only 1 vote out of 45 on that dysfunctional left wing council everyone is tired of watching NDP paid newspaper trolls screaming “billion$$$” at him, it’s a lie.

            So have fun at Ryerson, enjoy your free course of instruction in marxist political agitation, paralyze the city over the summer with screaming teenager “political activists” and get ready in October to have Mihevic find you a new job pouring cement.

            And don’t under any circumstances listen to your American based political activist consultants and tamper with the ballot boxes as was apparently done in Quebec in 2011.

          • tyrannosaurus_rek

            Rob Ford’s values include smoking crack cocaine, frequent public drunken stupors, driving while intoxicated, associating with drug dealers and gangs in a crack house, being involved in extortion, lying to the public at every opportunity, physically assaulting colleagues, and molesting women in public.

          • TheSotSays

            It’s a serious problem because it’s further evidence that the the NDP is hypocritical and untrustworthy

            And it’s the reason that the NDP can’t gain ground from 30 years ago. Everyone considers them a joke political movement steeped in childish activity and behaviour.

          • tyrannosaurus_rek

            If riding his bike on the sidewalk makes the NDP untrustworthy, smoking crack cocaine, frequent public drunken stupors, driving while intoxicated, associating with drug dealers and gangs in a crack house makes conservatives dangerous criminals.
