No Garage For Environment Minister, Ryerson Wants Sam’s, And It Was A Bad Day For Dalton McGuinty

garage.jpgOntario Environment Minister Laurel Broten will not build a two-storey garage for their home after all. Not that Torontoist doesn’t think that the garage was a bad idea, because we do, but one of her neighbours is trying to get the court to make her pay him back the $10,000 he spent preparing for the municipal board hearing. Isn’t that kind of excessive? Dude, you got what you wanted. Torontoist does not see where in the Environment Minister’s portfolio it says “recompense schmucks,” so if you chose to spend the money on lawyers rather than your much needed dental work, tough titty.
Canada has lost at least 76 radioactive devices over the last five years which could be used in a dirty bomb. Whyfor all of a sudden is dirty bomb potential the new orange in Canadian news? Seriously, every day now there’s a new CP wire story about how terrorists could dirty-bomb us all into a horrible panic.
Ryerson University asks the province to expropriate Sam the Record Man for its use. If Ryerson gets the building (as Sam Sniderman has said he would prefer), it will probably turn it into an expanded library. You know what would be funny? If it was an audiovisual library! Eh? Eh?
Dalton McGuinty says no to photo radar. Possibly because people hate photo radar and hate governments that install photo radar and do not vote for them. That’s just a theory.
Finally, McGuinty also came under fire for the way his government is dealing with the constant care workers’ strike. Tearful parents told McGuinty that he doesn’t “have a heart.” (Insert Wizard of Oz reference here.)
