Shuttle Bus Rides Again, McGuinty Loves Burning Stuff, And Danny Williams Is Right Rotted At Stephen Harper, Eh?
The Lunch Express rides again. It’s a shuttlebus service that takes office workers in Markham and Richmond Hill to nearby shops and restaurants so they don’t have to drive their own cars. Assuming you count Quizno’s as a “restaurant.” Admittedly, they GOT A PEPPER BAR! And a pepper bar is important. For starters, it makes the Quizno’s food taste like peppers, instead of like nothing.
Dalton McGuinty loves himself some garbage incinerators. The controversy over garbage incinerators—other than, you know, the burning of stuff and the fact that you still have to deal with tons of toxic ash afterwards—is that the stuff that burns up the best is also generally the stuff that recycles the best, thus putting incineration programs in competition with recycling programs.
McGuinty also loves himself some hybrid vehicles. He himself drives around in an E85 vehicle fuelled by an ethanol/gasoline blend, which is funny because until we have serious cellulosic ethanol production, using an ethanol vehicle is like spending money to burn corn.
Two new lawsuits filed against Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment for damages from sexual abuse. The suits in question concern former employee Gordon Stuckless, who pled guilty to multiple counts of sexual assault in 1997, and who is (thankfully) the last surviving known abuser who worked at the Gardens.
Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams calls Stephen Harper a dirty liar. Williams wisely chose to accuse Harper in print, rather than cutting a television commercial, where his unconscious use of Newfieisms like “t’underin’ Jesus” and “ya damn chucklehead” would just make everybody smile at the funny sailor man.
And the Raptors beat the Heat 96-83.
