Something else to think about...

...the next time you're sitting there in Emerg for 7 hours...
Yesterday, dozens of people, most of them Somali-Canadian women from Etobicoke, staged a sit-in at the social services offices in Metro Hall downtown, demanding their special diet allowances.
Yeah, yeah... I know what you're thinking... big deal, how much can this thing amount to?
The province spent $67-million on special dietary allowances in the 2008-09 fiscal year, up from $5-million in 2002-03.
Thank you Dalton McSlippery.
