Hey, Toronto...

...just something to think about the next time you pay your municipal taxes...

“I'm not prepared to endorse a deal that Mayor David Miller's made if the strike was for naught,” said Councillor Case Ootes (Ward 29, Toronto-Danforth), leader of council's right-leaning minority. “But at this point we don't know for sure what's in there.”

How the heck did a "right-leaning" city councillor get elected from Taliban Jack!s 'hood?

funny... the union is now saying that it isn't quite a done deal.

I just emailed my councilor that he can kiss my vote (and his ass) goodbye this Friday if he supports any deal that leaves the sick bank untouched.

If more people did that, then councilors would really think about their chances of re-election next year when they vote on Friday.

"sanwin says... think about their chances of re-election"

this is exactly how the system should work.

unfortunately, in canada in general... and specifically toronto... apathy is the order of the day.

Yeah, the union is saying the deal is not quite done yet. So could the strike possibly continue? I'm really curious what Miller will do next. Still, the Toronto tax payers are the ones who are going to pay for that. Regards, Julie.
