TTC Strike Avoided, Conservative Election Fraud Scandal, and Hooray For The Toronto FC Not Sucking


No TTC strike! Now we can all rest easy, content that we will continue to have access to the same below-par underfunded service we all know and love. (More details here.)
Elections Canada has accused the Tories of violating federal elections law. The Conservative Party apparently overspent by over one million dollars during the last election and intentionally filed misleading statements in its returns. The Conservative party responded by pointing out that a million dollars doesn’t go as far as it used to, you know, and besides, they didn’t even get a majority so what are people complaining about, huh?
Toronto cabbies are demanding a fare increase. The rising price of gas is rapidly cutting into their ability to make a living, even when they pretend to not hear you and take Bloor during rush hour.
It’s now officially legal to use a clothesline. Unless you live in a condo or apartment building, due to safety concerns. (What safety concerns? Are they worried about people emulating the Die Hard movies and pulling a John McClane to use the clotheslines as emergency escape routes?)
Danica Patrick has become the first woman to win an IndyCar race. Now we finally know for sure that women can waste fuel in the name of meaningless spectacle just as expertly as men can.
Finally, Toronto FC won its home opener this weekend, bringing its record this season to 2–2, which means they already have one-third as many wins as they got all last season.
